The electrodiagnostic sensitive examination on patients suffering from a chronic pain treated with transcutaneous electroanalgesia stimulation

The electrodiagnostic sensitive examination on patients suffering from a chronic pain treated with transcutaneous electroanalgesia stimulation

Giornale Italiano di Medicina del Lavoro 5(2): 89-93

This test was carried out before, during and after electroanalgesia. The only parameter to vary was the sensitive rheobase, which elevates during TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) and lasts unchanged for the entire active period, returning to basal values within 15 min. after application. As no other significant changes occur, both the stimulus frequency change and total period of application have no influence. The unchanged analgesic level, after return to sensitive rheobase values when TENS is interrupted, implied that such a mechanism is unspecific and is not involved in pain control from the TENS itself.
