What is Electric Stimulation Therapy?
A therapeutic treatment that applies electrical stimulation in treating muscle spasms and pain. It can help prevent atrophy and build strength in patients with injuries. It is also helpful in keeping muscles active especially after any type spinal cord injury or strokes.
What is Percutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (PENS)?
Percutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (PENS) is an electronic stimulus generator that transmits electrical impulses of various configurations to a needle electrode that is inserted just below the skin for the purpose of pain management.
What is TENS?
Stimulating pulses move across the surface of the skin and along the nerve strands. The stimulating pulses help prevent pain signals from reaching the brain. Tens devices also help stimulate your body to produce higher levels of its own natural painkillers, called “Endorphins”.
PNT/PENS is a type of neuromodulation. Neuromodulation is a category of treatment that is designed to alter the way the nervous system (nerves, spinal cord, and/or brain) transmits messages, such as the pain messages that occur when pain nerve cells are stimulated or damaged.
