TRANSCUTANEOUS ELECTRICAL NERVE STIMULATION
Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation (TENS): is characterized by biphasic current and
selectable parameters such as pulse rate and pulse width. TENS stimulates sensory nerves to block
pain signals, stimulate endorphin production to help normalize sympathetic function.
Benefits of TENS: Non-pharmaceutical, non-habit forming, pain relief.
Indications for TENS use include: for the symptomatic relief and management of chronic
(long-term) intractable pain and as an adjunctive treatment in the management of post-surgical and
post-traumatic acute pain problems.
Your pet will feel:
A tingling sensation in the area of the electrodes.
