A tens unit is a safe and non-invasive, drug-free method of pain management. Tens relieves pain by sending small electrical impulses through electrodes placed on the skin to underlying nerve fibers. TENS is believed to work 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. Secondly, 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. TENS may activate this mechanism. By effectively managing pain without drugs, TENS allows many people with chronic pain conditions to resume daily activity.

Tens UnitA Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) Unit is a medical device used to treat and eliminate pain using electric pulses. TENS units transmit small square electrical pulses to electrodes, which then transmit this electrical pulse to the underlying nerves. The primary components of a TENS unit are electrodes, an advanced computer chip and an electrical battery source.

Analog TENS Function modes B: Cycle Bursts, 2 bursts/sec., 9 Pulses/burst, and 100 Hz; adjustable width. C: Continuous mode. Pulse rate, pulse width and intensity are adjustable. M: Modulated Width. Pulse width is automatically varied in a six-second interval. The modulation range of pulse width is from setting value to 35% less than the control setting value, then returns to the setting value. Rate, width and intensity are fully adjustable. Wave form: Asymmetrical bi-phasic square pulse.

dermatomes and peripheral nerves - Click To Enlarge Electrodes can be placed along a dermatomal distribution or along peripheral nerves. This chart shows both dermatomes and peripheral nerves as a reference for tens electrode placement. This refernce is for health care professionals, however, if your health care provider has prescribed a specifc location, this may serve as a reference also.

Below are some suggestions for placement of tens electrodes for neck pain and lower back pain. Setting the tens unit for a constant level can be used to provide pain relief. As you become used to the setting, you can slowly increase the levels. Initially there should be no muscle contraction. For conditions like degenerative arthritis, I often find it helpful to modulate or slowly ramp to the point of muscle contraction which can provide a pumping action to help remove inflammation.

A study published in Clinical Rehabilitation, Vol. 19, No. 8, 850-860 (2005): A randomized clinical trial of TENS and exercise for patients with chronic neck pain, two hundred and eighteen patients with chronic neck pain were divided into treatment groups. In the conclusion it was stated, “After the six-week treatment, patients in the TENS and exercise group had a better and clinically relevant improvement in disability, isometric neck muscle strength, and pain. All the improvements in the intervention groups were maintained at the six-month follow-up.”

Tens Unit For Neck Pain

In Ortopedia, Traumatologia, Rehabilitacja 2010 Jul-Aug;12(4):289-300, a study indicated that TENS therapy for an hour per day contributed to pain relief and improvement of function and mobility of the spine in degenerative disc disease. They used a support to hold the electrodes against the lower back and is similar to our TENS for Degenerative Disc Disease set up. I often would recommend TENS for the neck and a moist heat neck wrap over the electrodes. This not only helps to hold the electrodes in place, but also gives heat therapy in combination with the TENS treatment. It has been common in clinics providing electrotherapy to use hot packs over the electrodes during treatment.

A TENS Unit Should NOT Be USED: With Implanted Medical Devices – Broken Skin or Wounds – Persons with Epilepsy – Top or Side of Head – Front of the Neck – Pregnant Women – Cancer Patients – Eyes or Mouth – Heart or Throat – While Driving

Each tens unit comes with a carrying case. Indside the case is the tens unit as described above. Each tens unit has a belt clip on the back, is highly portable and can be used anywhere. Also included is the lead wires which connect the tens unit to the electrodes, a pack of 4 reusable tens electrodes and a 9v battery. Everything you need to get started right away.

We have tens electrodes that are reusable and are available in packs of 6 with 4 electrodes in each pack. They come in various shapes and sizes for use on different locations.
