What is it?

After consultation with the pain doctors at the Maria Middelares General Hospital, we have opted to start providing TENS therapy. TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) is a non-invasive method to alleviate (chronic) pain without the use of medication.

The device can alleviate the pain because it applies electrical impulses through the skin (transcutaneous) that can excite (stimulate) the nerves.

Direct TENSĀ® can be used to alleviate different types of acute and chronic pains, for instance:

  • joint pain (e.g. knee or hip arthrosis)
  • chronic pain originating in the spinal column
  • degenerative disorders of the muscles, tendons and bones
  • tension headaches
  • muscular pain
  • radiating pain
  • amputation pain/phantom pain
