TENS means transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. It involves using a machine that can deliver low-voltage electric currents to nerves, blocking pain signals from reaching the brain and stimulating the release of endorphins. It is one of the services offered at Activa.
There is no clinical evidence for the effectiveness of LENS therapy. However, it is a low-risk pain relief option for most patients. Dealing with muscle pain is one of the worst feelings, that’s why our experienced healthcare providers use TENS therapy and combine with other treatments for best results.
The length of time the pain killing effects last once you switch off the TENS. Some patients have reported it can last up to 24 hours, and that the results improve after multiple TENS sessions. Now and again, a few patients experience extremely transient (enduring just a couple of hours) reactions, for example, feeling tired, drained, spacey, or have a gentle migraine. Think about these reactions as a positive reaction, as a sign that the patient’s mind is associating with the LENS. This is normally a decent prognostic marker.
