A TENS-stimulator works by inhibiting the pain stimulating pathways in your spine that are usually too active in chronic pain. Chronic pain results in lowering your pain tolerance. By sending electrical signals via stickers on your back, this happens less. Doesn't help everyone, but it definitely works for quite some people.

Worked great easing the pain back when I would get constant lumbo-sacral sprains. Thankfully I figured out that it was tied to dehydration, and keeping better hydration habits I haven't had even soreness since.
