The purpose of this book is to synthesize research findings on TENS to inform safe and appropriate TENS technique in clinical practice. Making sense of available research on TENS is challenging because literature is littered with inconsistent TENS terminology, methodologically weak study designs, and variability in clinical technique, including electrode positioning, electrical characteristics, and dosing. Nevertheless, some general findings emerge from the comprehensive review of the research literature which can inform safe and appropriate clinical practice. The purpose of this chapter is to summarise the research findings and to explore future directions for TENS research and clinical practice.
