What is Compex TENS/EMS?

Do you know electrotherapy has been used throughout history from Roman physicians to Benjamin Franklin through to modern medicine. The use of electrotherapy started as early as 63 A.D. when standing on electric fish was documented as therapy for pain relief. The first TENS unit, however, was not developed until much later in 1974.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is the use of pulsed low-voltage electrical currents to stimulate sensory nerves of the body to provide relief for both acute and chronic pain. The electrical pulses are delivered to the body through surface electrodes placed on the skin. The stimulation of the nerve reduces the brain’s capacity to interpret pain signals and the resulting effect is a reduced perception of pain or even a complete elimination of pain.

TENS often feels like a mild to moderate tingling sensation that is well tolerated by most people. If the intensity is unbearable, your practitioner would be able to modify the settings to meet your tolerance.
