- Acute pain – such as sports injuries, acute torticollis, acute lower back pain, and joint pain

TENS uses electrical stimulation which excites sensory nerves and modulates pain. TENS is effective at reducing pain in two following ways:
- Producing natural pain relieving hormones called endorphins
- Stimulating ‘non-pain’ nerve fibres that block nerves carrying pain messages to the brain
