    Hi Daniel,

    We do perform this service. The provider places electrode pads over the area to be stimulated and connects a transmitter box to the electrodes (ex. TENS unit). Current is transmitted through the skin to sensory fibers which helps decrease the pain sensation along the nerve distribution. Does this help?
