TENS Units for Knee Osteoarthritis

January 3, 2012

Tens Unit

 

TENS Units or transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation units are often used by physical therapists.  Sometimes they are called TENS machines.  Regardless of what the nerve stimulators are named, they work the same way.  Electrodes are placed on the skin and an electrical current is used to stimulate the nerves within a certain section of your body.

Physical Therapists often incorporate nerve stimulation with TENS Units into their treatment programs for patients suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee.  TENS units have been proven in scientific research to be an effective treatment option for knee pain.
