TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is a form of therapy that relieves pain. It works by sending a weak and painless electrical current along the nerve path. This prevents the pain signal from reaching the brain, which provides the person being treated with the TENS machine with some much-needed relief.
This innovative treatment was developed in the 1960s. Clyde Norman Shealy, MD, Ph.D., an American neurosurgeon is mainly credited with the development of the modern TENS unit. As well as being a surgeon he was a pain specialist. He was able to combine his in-depth understanding of pain control with his knowledge of the human nervous system to produce this innovative, and effective, device.
In Canada, TENS therapy is usually provided by physiotherapists in hospitals and clinics. It is also used by dentists in some countries for certain dental procedures.

TENS is a safe and widely accepted physiotherapy treatment. Most people barely notice the low-voltage electric currents that are applied during each session.
TENS therapy works to relieve pain in two ways. They are:
- By blocking the pain signals and stopping them from reaching the brain
- Stimulating the release of endorphins, which work to relieve any residue pain
In addition, as the pain dissipates many people can relax for the first time in weeks. This improves the quality of their sleep, which, of course, is also beneficial. The fact that they do not feel as tense further enhances pain relief. Good quality sleep and the slight enhancement of circulation in the area also contribute to the healing process. Only to a small degree, but enough to make a positive difference.
