Abstract In the cancer population, painful bony metastases are common, difficult to treat and significantly reduce quality of life. Common treatments include opioid analgesics, bisphosphonates, and radiotherapy; yet these have significant side effects and are not universally effective. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is inexpensive, relatively free from side effects, and widely available. We present a case study of successful TENS therapy in a patient with cancer bone pain and discuss the rationale for using TENS in this setting.
