Combining transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation with therapeutic exercise to reduce pain in an elderly population: a pilot study
Purpose: Chronic pain is a highly prevalent and debilitating condition, and there is a pressing need to find safe, effective and affordable treatments to tackle this public health issue. This pilot study aimed to assess ...
Unravelling the effect of experimental pain on the corticomotor system using transcranial magnetic stimulation and electroencephalography.
Abstract : The interaction between pain and the motor system is well-known, with past studies showing that pain can alter corticomotor excitability and have deleterious effects on motor learning. The aim of this study was ...
Evidence of descending inhibition deficits in atypical but not classical trigeminal neuralgia
Abstract : Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a rare neuropathic facial pain disorder. Two forms of TN, classical TN (CTN) and atypical TN (ATN), are reported and probably have different aetiologies. The aim of the present study ...
Deciphering the role of endogenous opioids in high frequency TENS using low and high doses of naloxone
Abstract : Previous human studies have shown that the analgesic effect of high frequency TENS could not be reversed by low doses of naloxone. The aim of the present study was to reinvestigate the possible contribution of ...
Re: Sluka KA, Bjordal JM, Marchand S, Rakel BA. What makes transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation work? Making sense of the mixed results in the clinical literature
Abstract : We read the article recently published by Sluka and colleagues1 in PTJ with great interest. The elements raised by the authors shed important light on the mixed results obtained in the literature concerning the ...

High- and low-frequency transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation does not reduce experimental pain in elderly individuals
Abstract : Despite its widespread clinical use, the efficacy of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) remains poorly documented in elderly individuals. In this randomized, double-blind crossover study, we ...

Guidelines for assessment of gait and reference values for spatiotemporal gait parameters in older adults: The biomathics and canadian gait consortiums initiative
Abstract: Background: Gait disorders, a highly prevalent condition in older adults, are associated with several adverse health consequences. Gait analysis allows qualitative and quantitative assessments of gait that improves ...
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation and placebo analgesia: is the effect the same for young and older individuals?
Abstract: Purpose: Placebo analgesia refers to a perceived reduction in pain intensity following the administration of a simulated or otherwise medically ineffective treatment. Previous studies have shown that many factors ...
