During use of TENS, electrical currents produced by a portable pulse generator enter through the intact skin surface through the conductive electrodes. The conventional way of administration of TENS is to use their electrical characteristics that selectively activate large diameter fibers (Aß) without the activation of smaller diameter fibers. The evidence suggests that this natural method of treatment produces the best noninvasive forms of pain relief.
