TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) Units provide a non-invasive, drug-free method to help patients control pain.
Pain is a necessary warning signal of trauma or malfunction in the body. Long lasting, persistent pain serves no useful purpose.
TENS Units provide tiny electrical impulses through the skin, to nerves. These impulses do not cure the problem, they relieve the pain of the condition by modifying perceived pain.
While TENS Units do not work for everyone, for most patients, they are effective in reducing or eliminating pain, as part of a continued chiropractic therapy program to restore mobility and function.
During your appointment with Dr. Hunziker, if he determines you may benefit from having a TENS Unit at home, for pain relief as needed, he may recommend it. We have TENS Units in both of our offices. Contact us at the Baymeadows American Chiropractic office or Contact us at the Jacksonville Beach American Chiropractic office for an appointment to start looking and feeling better.
