TENS is a form of electrotherapy that uses surface electrodes to stimulate nerve fibres, primarily for pain relief. 

A form of electrotherapy is called biofeedback. Equipment is used to reveal internal physiological events.

This feedback is then used to train the patient in how to better control their movements to minimise pain.
