Electrotherapy Side Effects: TENS 7000 vs. Pain Medication

Tens vs pain medication
The TENS 7000 is such a viable alternative for the treatment of acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain (e.g. arthritis) because it uses electrical current as opposed to the chemicals which make up the active and inactive ingredients of pain medications, commonly known as opioids or narcotics. That is not to say that unlike pain management drugs, the TENS 7000 electrotherapy device doesn’t have potential side effects. At the end of the day however, the potential adverse effects of a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation device will be a walk in the park compared to those of pain medications.
