Stop Your Pain NOW before it becomes Chronic – as you read all about T.E.N.S., you will begin to understand why you can’t afford to waste anymore time getting less than everything life has to offer!

Did you know you can manage your pain with T.E.N.S.?

T.E.N.S. (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is a powerful tool for managing pain. By placing electrodes on or near the painful area, gentle pulses are sent through the skin, suppressing pain signals to the brain and triggering the release of natural pain-killing chemicals like Endorphins and Enkephalin.

This technology has been recognized by healthcare professionals worldwide and is backed by extensive research since 1965. It’s commonly used in clinics and now recommended for home use too. T.E.N.S. not only relieves pain but also promotes a pleasant and soothing sensation, entirely controlled by the user.

In combination with exercises and proper posture, T.E.N.S. can even eliminate pain within days! Our experienced Physical Therapists can guide you through selecting the right T.E.N.S. unit, ensuring effective pain relief in the comfort of your home.

Electrotherapy, including T.E.N.S., offers a non-invasive alternative to pain medication, reducing inflammation, increasing blood flow, and stimulating muscles while triggering the body’s natural pain-relieving mechanisms. Our electrotherapeutic medical devices are FDA-cleared and may be covered up to 100% by your Extended Medical Plan.

However, there are important considerations before using T.E.N.S., including contraindications like pregnancy’s first trimester, numbness over a painful area, or pre-existing lymphedema. Always consult your doctor, especially if you have a pacemaker, cardiac condition, cancer, or other health concerns.

T.E.N.S. is versatile, assisting with various conditions like ankle, back, neck, knee, shoulder, and foot pain, among others. It’s safe for acute or chronic pain, with adjustable settings to suit individual needs.

Understanding T.E.N.S. treatment protocols, electrode placement, and ideal treatment periods ensure optimal pain relief. Our Physical Therapists provide comprehensive guidance, helping you operate your unit effectively.

Choose from our recommended T.E.N.S. units, available for purchase online, through fax and telephone orders, or in-store at Queen West Physiotherapy in Brampton, Ontario. Rentals are also available on a monthly basis.
