Manage pain. Stimulate your recovery.

If you’re recovering from a recent operation and looking to regain your mobility, searching for a simple way to manage pain or want to wake up your body after a period of inactivity, our 360º approach can help you get back to normal, quicker.

As part of your personal treatment plan, your team may recommend Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, better known as TENS.

This common electrotherapy treatment can help to reduce chronic back pain and stimulate muscles, following a period of surgery or general weakness.

At Spectrum, we use Bluetens, a next-generation treatment which has been proven to help relieve chronic pain, relax your muscles and improve endurance.

How it works

At the start of your 360º treatment your team will carry out a full consultation and clinical assessment. This will help our specialists to determine whether TENS is right for you.

TENS works by sending electrical pulses from a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator to a pad attached to your skin. These electrical pulses can help to stimulate your body and release endorphins and other substances, which block pain signals in the brain.

Depending on the chosen programme, TENS can help to relieve pain, recover strength and performance, and allow to you to get back to your best, faster.

Benefits for your body

As part of a bespoke programme of treatment, TENS can help to relieve and manage many kinds of chronic (long-term) pain, including:

  • Arthritis or other joint pain
