Electrical Nerve Stimulation in Iselin, NJ: PENS therapy is designed to make the nerves less sensitive to pain. A low voltage electrical current is delivered to the fatty layer just below the skin’s surface and close to the nerve endings situated in the local area. The stimulation induces a pain relieving effect by altering the state of the nerves.
The PENS Therapy Procedure
The procedure typically takes about 20-30 minutes at which time a very low electrical voltage will be delivered through thin probes that are inserted into the skin. The patient can return home shortly after the procedure and eat and drink as they normally would.

PENS has amazing benefits for most patients. Some will have total pain relief, others will experience prolonged pain relief for three months or more and others may get relief for a shorter period of time. Dr. Cawley will make a determination if PENS therapy is right for you during your consultation and exam.
