Transcutaneous Electrical Stimulation (TENS)

TENS is an electrotherapeutic modality used by physiotherapists in the acute stages of injury or in chronic pain patients to help reduce pain. TENS is the application of a low level electrical current which helps to block out and stop pain signals reaching the brain by stimulating nerve receptors at the site of injury. These receptors can remain stimulated for a number of hours after the current has been removed providing patients with longer lasting pain relief post treatment. Typically conditions treated with TENS include chronic lower back and neck pain.

I have been going to David for physiotherapy for the past two and half years and I am really happy with what he has done for me. I initially went to David with upper back problems that were office work related and since then I have been doing strength and conditioning training with David that has helped eradicate that back pain.

Since training with David my fitness levels have gone from non-existent to being able to run a 16k road race, something I would have never dreamed I’d be able to do. Dave is professional, courteous and is an excellent motivator. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
