Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is use to assist with pain relief. It works by transmitting a low-voltage electrical signal through electrodes attached to the skin around the area which is experiencing pain.

When in use, the unit sends electrical signals through the electrodes which then travels into the body. This results in a tingling feeling, or numbness, or even warmth during treatment which can replace the feeling of pain. The TENS has also been referred to by some as a type of “electrical massage”

In conjunction with dry needling, the patient may experience an increase recovery time.



Therapeutic ultrasound generates high frequency sound vibrations that stimulates the skin’s tissue cells. Stimulating the cells can cause the cell walls to become more permeable, allowing the movement of proteins from the blood into the cell.

Therapeutic ultrasound may increase the extensibility of structures such as ligaments, tendons, scar tissue and fibrous joint capsules. In addition, may also help to reduce pain and muscle spasm and promote the healing process. Whether it’s gardening, cycling, looking after the kids, going for a long walk or a physically demanding job, the ability to move with freedom is vital to your everyday life. This therapy supports your body’s natural healing process so you can get back to your best.
