TENS – Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation

Transcutaneous means ‘through the skin’ – TENS machines deliver small electrical pulses to the body via electrodes placed on the skin. TENS machines are thought to affect the way pain signals are sent to the brain. Pain signals reach the brain via nerves and the spinal cord. If pain signals are blocked then the brain will receive fewer signals from the source of the pain.

TENS machines are thought to work in two ways.
1. When the machine is set on a high pulse rate (90-130 Hz), it triggers the ‘pain gateway’ to close, which is thought to block pain nerve pathways to the brain.

  1. When the machine is set on a low pulse rate (2-5 Hz), it stimulates the body to make its own pain relieving chemicals called endorphins, which block pain signals.

Your Pain Management Consultant will show you how to use the TENS machine, which will come with full instructions.

If you have a pace maker you should inform your consultant.
