You might have been recommended a TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) mechine as part of your treatment for back pain. This helpful medical device won’t ‘cure’ your symptoms but it can provide short-term pain relief and it’s a useful alternative or addition to pain medication.

What is a TENS machine and how does it work?

A TENS machine is a small battery-powered unit which adheres to your skin via sticky pads called electrodes. The electrodes trasmit small electrical impulses, creating a tingling or pins and needles sensation in your skin which distracts the nerves in the area to reduce pain signals and help relax muscle spasm. The effects can last for up to 4 hours afterwards…
