Doctor, Doctor I’ll give you the news: TENS 3000 & 7000 Back!

Doctor tens

Quoth The Rock, “finally, the TENS 3000 and TENS 7000 have gone back to Discount Medical Supplies.” This is the single most expected return since General MacArthur’s to Philippines (or at least the Terminator’s to that police station). As a healthcare provider you will be understandably excited by this piece of news; this is like the Return of the Jedi and the Return of the King all rolled into one. What these devices being back in business means is that business is about to pick up. Now you can once again tell your patients “healing is my business… and business is good.”

Now that the most popular and best-selling TENS pain management units are available once again all’s well with the world, and as Shakespeare wrote, “all’s well that ends well.”  Now you are again able to prescribe your patients electrotherapy to relieve musculoskeletal pain stemming from several different causes, such as arthritis or injury. The benefits of this form of therapy, as you may know, include being a drug-free, non-invasive treatment that has virtually no side effects. These devices deliver painless, barely perceptible electrical impulses transcutaneously to block the transmission of pain signals to the brain as well as promote the release of the body’s natural opioids known as endorphins.

 Here is a quick rundown of each unit’s technical specifications, which can help you decide which one to choose.
