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 ...
The effectiveness of transcranial direct current stimulation as an add-on modality to graded motor imagery for treatment of complex regional pain syndrome: A randomized proof of concept study
BACKGROUND: The efficacy of graded motor imagery (GMI) for the management of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is supported by evidence, but its treatment effect remains generally modest. Transcranial direct current ...
Transcranial magnetic stimulation measures in the elderly: reliability, smallest detectable change and the potential influence of lifestyle habits
Background: Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive technique that can be used to evaluate cortical function and corticospinal pathway in normal and pathological aging. Yet, the metrologic properties of ...
L'hypnose : une nouvelle avenue à considérer pour les professionnels de la réadaptation
"La douleur est un phénomène présent pour un grand nombre de personnes vues en ergothérapie (Hesselstrand, Samuelsson et Liedberg, 2015). Malgré les outils présentement à notre disposition, la gestion de la douleur chronique ...
Efficacy of transcranial direct-current stimulation in women with provoked vestibulodynia
Abstract: Background: Provoked vestibulodynia (PVD) is a highly prevalent condition characterized by acute recurrent pain located at the vaginal entrance in response to pressure application or attempt of vaginal penetration. ...
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 ...

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 ...
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 ...
