Country : USA

Study : Using TENS for pain control: the state of the evidence

Conclusion : The advantages of obtaining pain relief without the negative side effects of many pharmaceutical interventions is welcomed and desired by certain patients. Both HF and LF TENS been shown to provide analgesia specifically when applied at a strong, non-painful intensity. TENS is effective for postoperative pain, osteoarthritis, painful diabetic neuropathy, and some acute pain conditions.

BACK PAIN

Name of researchers : Ronald Melzack | Phyllis Vetere | Lois Finch

Country : Canada

Study : TENS for Low Back Pain

Conclusion : The results show clearly that TENS is an effective modality for the treatment of low back pain. Because of the double-blind, randomized design of the study, the significant effectiveness of TENS cannot be attributed to other factors such as placebo efficiency or other psychological effects.

CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN

Name of researchers : Robert Pivec,MD | Michael Stokes, MPH | Abhishek S. Chitnis, MPharm, PhD | Carl B. Paulino, MD | Steven F. Harwin, MD | Michael A. Mont, MD

Country : USA

Study : Clinical and Economic Impact of TENS in Patients With Chronic Low Back Pain

Conclusion : Patients who were treated with TENS had significantly fewer hospital and clinic visits, and used less diagnostic imaging (31 vs 46 events per 100 patients), had fewer physical therapy visits (94 vs 107), and required less back surgery (7.5 vs 9.2 surgeries) than patients receiving other treatment modalities.

PAIN RELIEF

Name of researchers : C. Norman | Shealy, M.D.

Country : USA

Study : TENS: le traitement de choix pour la douleur et la dépression

Conclusion : Over 25,000 patients have revealed that it addresses depression successfully in 50% of patients, far better and more safely than does any antidepressant. No pharmaceutical treatment is as safe or as effective as TENS for pain control. Indeed it is our experience that this is the most effective alternative treatment known.
