TENS Units

TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) units are used mainly for nerve related pain conditions. They work by sending stimulating pulses across the surface of the skin and along the nerve strands. The stimulating pulses help prevent pain signals from reaching the brain. They also help stimulate your body to produce higher levels of its own natural painkillers, called "Endorphins".

These are at home  pain management devices. Many insurance companies cover these units and we will do all the paperwork for you. If you don't have insurance you can still get one of these devices through our office for less than you might think.

Call us to get your TENS Unit today and feel relief from pain by tonight! 636-272-8888

E.M.S. stands for (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) which are predominately used to prevent, or reduce, muscle atrophy. Atrophy is the weakening and loss of muscle tone, which is usually experienced after surgeries or injuries. EMS has been proven to be an effective means of preventing muscle atrophy. EMS also helps by increasing blood flow to muscles, increasing range of motion, increasing muscle strength, as well as enhancing muscle endurance. EMS has pain management attributes in helping muscle related pain, such as a spastic muscle, sore muscles, or tight muscles.
