ELECTRICAL STIMULATION

Electrical Stimulation has been proven to be effective in treating pain. We at Total Health Clinic use a technology known as TENS, Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. TENS uses safe electric current to stimulate the nerves for therapeutic purposes.

Electrodes or mediums for electricity to travel to the body, placed on the body at the site of pain deliver electricity that travels through the nerve fibers. The electric currents block the pain receptors from being sent from the nerves to the brain. 

TENS therapy can be used to treat both chronic (long lasting) and acute (short-term) pain. The most common conditions that TENS therapy is used to treat are:

  • Osteoporosis-related joint, bone, or muscle problems 

  • Fibromyalgia-related joint, bone, or muscle problems

  • Tendinitis (muscle tissue inflammation) 

  • Bursitis (inflammation of the fluid-filled pads that cushion the joints) 

  • Neck pain

  • Labor pain

  • Cancer pain
