Is it legal for a Chiropractor in California to prescribe a TENS unit (after examining a patient).

Yes, it is legal.

Just FYI -- you will not find any rule, statute or other law that explicitly says a chiropractor may prescribe TENS treatment. Rather, the ability of a chiropractor to do so stems from the more general grant of authority already noted to you.
