What is electrotherapy?

Also known as TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical NeuroStimulation), electrotherapy is a non-drug method that uses a low-voltage electrical current.

This is a technique used especially by physiotherapists.

The patch acts on the nerve fibers of the pain area by blocking the transmission of pain to the spinal cord and brain.

This action also stimulates the release of endorphins, molecules that cause the natural destruction of pain.
