TENS devices are an exception modality that have been used for the treatment of pain for decades. They deliver small electrical impulses through electrodes which attach to the users skin. These electrical impulses flood the nervous system, reducing its ability to transmit pain signals to the spinal cord and brain. The same electrical impulses also stimulate the body to produce natural pain relievers called endorphins.
TENS units may help treat the following symptoms:
neck and back pain
They may also alleviate pain that results from the following conditions:
painful diabetic neuropathy
spinal cord injury
The word TENS is not a new term for Remington Medical. We were instrumental over 30 years ago in educating therapists and patients who have never used the technology, showing them the benefits of introducing TENS units into their practice or life. As a pioneer in the sales, service, and education of TENS in Canada, world-class manufacturers such as Verity Medical looked to Remington Medical to distribute their units.
