Reduced analgesic effect of acupuncture-like TENS but not conventional TENS in opioid treated patients
Abstract : Evidence from recent animal studies indicates that the analgesic effect of low frequency TENS is reduced in opioid tolerant animals. The aim of the present study was to compare the analgesic effect of conventional ...
Effect of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy on experimental pain : a double-blind, randomized study in healthy young adults
Abstract : Past studies have suggested that pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy can decrease pain. To date, however, it remains difficult to determine if the analgesic effect observed in patients are attributable ...
Simple things matter! : how reassurance and pain management strategies can improve outcomes in physiotherapy : a case report
Abstract : Psychological barriers to rehabilitation are generally seen as preexisting patient traits that clinicians are asked to evaluate and modify. In the present case report, we provide evidence that these barriers can ...
Can we improve pain and sleep in elderly individuals with transcranial direct current stimulation? : results from a randomized controlled pilot study
Abstract : Background: The prevalence of chronic pain and sleep disturbances substantially increases with age. Pharmacotherapy remains the primary treatment option for these health issues. However, side effects and drug ...
Randomized placebo-controlled cross-over designs in clinical trials : a gold-standard to be reassessed
Placebo effects are well-known phenomena in medicine and biology. In fact, placebos are used as control conditions in randomized cross-over clinical trials to validate new treatments. Only recently, however, has it become ...
Altered autonomic nervous system reactivity to pain in trigeminal neuralgia
BACKGROUND: In the last two decades, there has been increasing evidence to suggest that trigeminal neuralgia (TN) may be linked to a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The aim of the present study was to ...
Repetitive afferent electrical stimulation of the lower-limb : effect on corticomotor excitability and implications for rehabilitation
Despite the extensive work published on the effects of electrical stimulation on corticomotor excitability, very few studies have focused on lower limb muscles. The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of ...
