A transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) machine is an alternative to painkillers for many. This portable, battery-operated device is worn on the body, especially on the painful part and is attached by wires to sticky pads resting directly on the skin. Electrical pulses are transmitted to the body that helps ease the pain in patients experiencing the pain of some sort. The advantages of the machines are well recorded and hence known to be without side-effects.

The effectiveness of TENS machines though is inconclusive. However, since TENS machines have proved to offer pain relief and relieve physical stress they are widely used.

The user controls the unit and one can adjust settings without the need of a medical professional. The machine is used for 15-20 minutes per session and can be used multiple times during the day.
