If you have recently had an operation on your foot or lower leg, you may find it difficult to walk unaided. While many people choose to use a wheelchair or crutches to get around during their recovery, you also have the option of using a knee scooter.

Whereas in the past the extraction of teeth, root canal work and the fitting of dental implants could all cause a great deal of pain, now, the types of anaesthesia available to your dentist mean that you will feel very little discomfort.

TENS is an abbreviation for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. TENS machines stimulate the nerves by applying a mild electric current through the skin as part of a wide variety of therapies for alleviating nerve pain. TENS is also an important tool in strengthening weak muscles through EMS (Electric Muscle Stimulation).
