Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation
This machine is also referred to as a TENS unit. It delivers small electrical pulses to your back by way of tiny, sticky electrodes attached to your skin. These pulses are used to stimulate your production of endorphins and prevent your body’s pain signals from traveling to your brain.
Painkillers and Muscle Relaxers
