Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a method of pain relief involving the use of a mild electrical current.
WHAT CAN TENS HELP YOU WITH ….?
- Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
- Jaw soreness
- Tooth soreness not related to decay or injury
- Neck pain
At FMS we use low-frequency TENS that causes your muscles to contract and relax in a precise sequence and at a scientifically determined rate so they are able to relax the tension and eliminate toxins. In addition to relaxing your muscles, the TENS massage stimulates the production and release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers.
Bio Tens is a compact, Ultra-Low Frequency, Trans cutaneous Electrical Neural Simulator (ULF-TENS). This ULF-TENS delivers a precisely regulated, bilaterally simultaneous, rhythmic stimulus to both the mastication and the facial muscles.
When BioTENS is used to relax muscles prior to taking a clinical bite registration, it is possible to observe the effect of the ULF-TENS on the muscles by recording the electrical activity with an electromyograph (BioEMG II). The BioEMG II can show the levels of activity before and after the TENS pulsing. Many pain patients exhibit more muscle activity before pulsing and less activity after pulsing.
