Support Treatment: TENS (Kinesiologist Led)
Experience the relief of TENS - a Kinesiologist-led support treatment that utilizes electrical nerve stimulation to manage pain and enhance mobility.
Our TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) Support Treatment is a non-invasive therapy that uses low-voltage electrical currents to relieve pain. TENS can be a helpful tool for managing both chronic and acute pain.
BILLING & DIRECT BILLING
TENS Support Treatment is typically not covered by extended health benefits, although it is eligible for use with health spending accounts. While we can't offer direct billing for this service, we encourage our clients to see this as an investment in their health and wellbeing.
INDICATIONS FOR TREATMENT
This treatment is often recommended for those dealing with pain related to musculoskeletal issues, nerve-related pain conditions (like chronic pain or phantom pain), and conditions like fibromyalgia or painful diabetic neuropathy.
TENS should not be used by individuals with implanted devices like a pacemaker, during pregnancy (unless specifically advised by a healthcare provider), over damaged skin or wounds, or by those with certain heart conditions. Always share any pre-existing conditions with our Kinesiologist.
Clients can expect a reduction in the intensity of pain, improved mobility, and enhanced quality of life. Regular sessions can help manage chronic pain conditions.
Our Kinesiologist will begin with a consultation to understand your specific concerns. The TENS unit, with electrodes placed on the skin, is then used to deliver low-voltage electrical currents to the targeted areas.
