Transcutaneous Electric Neuro Stimulation This uses the principle that pain and pain impulses in the body can be dispersed through stimulation of the nervous system with an electrical current. This electrical current is either applied in impulses in short bursts, in waves, or in a continuous stream. A pad is placed upon the site of the problematic area, and the current passes through the skin to the nerve. This treatment is especially effective for conditions that require pain relief, particularly on the back or neck. Specific examples include spinal diseases, headaches and post-traumatic pain.
Duration of treatment: 15 - 30 minutes
