Study : Clinical and Economic Impact of TENS in Patients With Chronic Low Back Pain
Conclusion : Patients who were treated with TENS had significantly fewer hospital and clinic visits, and used less diagnostic imaging (31 vs 46 events per 100 patients), had fewer physical therapy visits (94 vs 107), and required less back surgery (7.5 vs 9.2 surgeries) than patients receiving other treatment modalities.
