DRY NEEDLING WITH ELECTRICAL STIMULATION

The electrical stimulation (e-stim) can be added into the needles which called a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). They are beneficial to treat pain  

HOW DO THEY WORK?

TENS unit delivers small electrical impulses via the needles which are attached directly to your trigger points.
These electrical sensations inundate the nervous system, reducing the tendency to transmit pain signals to the brain and spine

The same electric pulses also activate the body to release natural endorphins.
