"TENS" is an acronym for something I cannot quite remember. It is
quite simple but works very well. It is a battery operated unit that
sends out electrical impulses to an electrode placed on the skin.
The impules can be steady, kinda like a buzzing, or in bursts, kinda
like a pulsating shower head. The principle is to break the pain
channel to the brain and to relax the muscle fibers. I have used
this unit on my back and shoulders when nothing else seemed to work
and the results are almost immediate. Have not seen these used on a
horse, but why not?
