What is Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation ( T.E.N.S )?
TENS, or transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, is the use of electric stimulation with the help of a machine in order to stimulate the nerves for therapeutic purposes. A TENS unit (or T.E.N.S unit) is a portable machine that is used to relieve pain. The unit is usually used by connecting two or more electrodes to the skin.
TENS units are very commonly used as a non-invasive way of electric stimulation for pain relief from acute back problems and chronic back pain. By using the right amount of electric stimulation, substantial pain relief can be achieved.
Relieving Back Pain Problems with a TENS Unit
TENS uses low voltage electric stimulation to relieve back pain problems. A portable TENS unit can be hooked to a belt around the back and is connected to two electrodes. These electrodes use electric stimulation via a current from the portable TENS machine to the userís skin.
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation has been shown to help eliminate the sensation of chronic back pain with the use of electrodes. These electrodes create an electric stimulation that travels along nerve fibers and creates a relieving sensation.
How to Choose the Best TENS Unit
In order to determine the best TENS unit for pain relief, you should ask yourself these very simple questions:
Do you need pain relief only or do you need pain relief and muscle stimulation?
What is the level of pain: No pain, mild pain or moderate pain?
Do you need to treat one location or two or more locations
Answering these questions will help determine the best TENS unit from our wide selection TENS units.

TENS Unit Electrodes should never be placed:
On or near the eyes
In the mouth
Transcerebrally (on each temple)
On the front of the neck (due to the risk of acute hypotension through a vasovagal reflex)
On areas of numb skin/decreased sensation
On broken skin areas or wounds
On or near the trigeminal nerve if you have a history of herpes zoster induced trigeminal neuralgia (Postherpetic neuralgia)
Do not turn your personal TENS Unit up too high as this can cause over-stimulation which may make pain worse. There should be no muscle contraction.
TENS Units should also be used with caution in people with epilepsy or pregnant women (do not use over area of the uterus as the effects of electrical stimulation over the developing fetus are not known). TENS should not be used by people with an artificial cardiac pacemaker due to risk of interference and failure of their implanted device. Possible failure of these warnings can result in a cardiac arrhythmia.
In the situation where low frequency (or acupuncture-like) TENS Unit is being used, it is necessary to increase the intensity of the stimulation to the point where a demonstrable muscle twitch is evident. This 2-6Hz (pulses per second) output increases the systemic release of endorphins which in turn cause pain relief.
Google Trusted Store Customer Ratings
Have brought many items for LG Medical since 2012 and never had an issue. Service is always great and the products are excellent quality for a great price. If you have a question and call they are knowledgeable about their products plus the LG web site has many videos and tip. I will continue to buy from LG Medical as I feel the are one of the best in their field. DMD
A family member ordered from LGMedSupply in the past and had great service, and that is why I felt safe ordering from them. And they didn't let me down. I got exactly what I ordered and it got to me when it was supposed to so that is why I gave them the top rating.
I was very happy with the service that I got from the staff at LG Med Supply. I looked all over the net for over a year to see who was the main Co. that had not only what I needed but who was the Co. that seemed to be the main Manufacturer of the Tens Unit. Then I started checking who had all of the Conductive Designed Pads That my Dr. wanted me to have and here again LG Med Supply had all of the items and were offering the best prices on all of the items that I needed. LG Med Supply was hands down the best in all of the categories as far as who had all of the items that I needed from the Back Belt Strap/Neck electrode/Shoulder and Knee Conductive Designed Pads that my Dr. wanted me to start therapy with. LG Med Supply is the only web site that had a vast selection of different shaped Electrodes which deliver a totally different stimulation that really gives you a completely different feeling then a straight square pad electrode. Thank You LG Med Supply for being there in my time of need. Carter
I ORDERED MY TENS / EMS UNIT PREVIOUSLY FROM LG MED SUPPLY, MAKING ME A RETURN CUSTOMER. THE SALES PERSON WAS POLITE AND VERY HELPFUL. AS WAS THE CUSTOMER SERVICE PERSON WHEN I HAD TO MAKE A RETURN ON 1 ITEM OF MY ORDER. THANK YOU FOR EXCELLENT PRODUCTS AND SERVICE.
My husband had a very painful back problem and we ordered a TENS unit from LG. We got it in a couple of days and are delighted with the service from LG and the efficiency of the TENS unit. We would highly recommend them to anyone!!
I did not understand fully how to use the Tens Unit. Lucy with customer service was SO patient and walked me through the entire process My feet felt better just after one session! LGMed Supply would be an excellent addition to your list of trusted companies!!
Well I'm amazed because it came like the very next day. If it wasn't the very next day, it was definitely the day after that. Wow, they are the fastest I ever did business with online. I'm gonna assume they keep a stock in major cities somehow. Thank you for the opportunity to give them feedback because they do deserve it. Greg L Newman
