Does TENS nerve stimulation help treat knee osteoarthritis?

A Answers (1)

  • Multiple randomized controlled trials have examined the effects of TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. Overall, the results suggest improvements in knee stiffness and pain, although it is not clear that walking distance or swelling are improved. The available studies have been small without clear descriptions of design or results. Therefore, better research is necessary before a strong recommendation can be made.
