Electrotherapy / TENS 3000
“TENS” stands for transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation. The TENS unit sends comfortable impulses through the skin that stimulate the nerve (or nerves) in the treatment area. In many cases, this stimulation will greatly reduce or eliminate pain. In many patients, the reduction or elimination of pain lasts longer than the actual period of stimulation (sometimes as much as three to four times longer).
- Delivers non-addictive and non-invasive analgesia via the disruption of pain signals across sensory nerves
- Facilitates simple, self-administered treatments via the portable unit (approximately the size of a deck of playing cards)
- Carries a favorable benefit-to-risk ratio because it has no notable adverse effects and no interactions with other treatments
- Utilizes a standard 9-volt battery and adhesive electrodes
Safe & Effective
Hundreds of patients and clinical reports support the efficacy of the TENS 3000, not just because it works, but because it is free of the functional impairment associated with narcotic analgesics that may adversely affect a patient.

Pain in the elbow can be the result of an accident such as a fall or car crash, or an injury from playing sports, such as with tennis elbow. Diagnoses include fracture, dislocation, ligament injuries, ruptured tendons and cubital tunnel syndrome.
To promote healing of an elbow injury, the elbow must be immobilized at precisely the angle necessary as it relates to the injury and the patient’s individual anatomy. That’s why the elbow brace may at first look complicated, but once you have the correct angle set, all you need to do is put it on and take it off every day.
Wearing an elbow brace is much less trouble than a cast, and it works infinitely better than a compression sleeve.
