Medisana Back Pain Relief System

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation is a safe non-invasive drug-free method of pain management. It relieves pain by sending small electrical impulses through the electrodes placed on the skin to underlying fibers. TENS works by two different mechanisms. First, electrical stimulation of the nerve fibers can block a pain signal from being carried to the brain. If the signal is blocked, pain is not perceived. Second, the body has its own mechanism for suppressing pain. It does this by releasing natural chemicals called endorphins in the brain which act as analgesics. By effectively managing pain without drugs, TENS allows many people with lower back pain conditions to resume daily activity.
