J-5 TRANSCUTANEOUS TENS UNIT:
The j-5 is a low frequency TENS unit used to treat and diagnose and treat neuromuscular disorders as they relate to craniofacial pain and Temporomandibular Joint disorders. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a specific therapy for the treatment and resolution of pain related to neurological and myo-facial conditions. It does this by delivering a mild electronic impulse through the nerves that control the masticatory and facial muscles. The rhythmic pulsing relaxes the muscles and therefore allows us to determine the correct relation of the mandible to the cranium. It also relieves pain and trismus of the muscles of the face caused by spasms and tension. In addition, it propels the mandible through space to a position which is most compatible with a relaxed musculature.
