Tens (short for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) utilizes special electrical signals to activate
A-beta nerve fibers, which in turn inhibit other nerve pathways that transmit pain signals to the brain.
This concept is known as the gate control theory and essentially results in reduced pain perception. It is
also thought that this type of nerve stimulation increases the release of endogenous opioids known as
endorphins and encephalin. These work as an internal analgesic medication, providing prolonged pain
relief, even after the electrical stimulus has stopped.
