This wiki has been updated 10 times since it was first published in October of 2018. If you've been to a chiropractor or physical therapist recently, then you might already be familiar with TENS units. Short for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, these machines give your nerves a short little zap of electricity. This is supposed to block your pain receptors from reporting to the brain, which is why they're frequently used for chronic joint or muscle pain. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. If you'd like to contribute your own research to the Wiki, please get started by reviewing this introductory video.

Editor's Notes

October 25, 2018:

Placed a strong emphasis on ease-of-use when ranking, considering that most users will likely be in pain when starting therapy. Included the Compex Wireless despite its hefty price tag due to the variety of purposes it can serve, as well as its potential benefits for competitive athletes.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
