Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS): Research to support clinical practiceTranscutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a technique that delivers mild electrical currents across the intact surface of the skin to reduce pain. TENS is used by practitioners throughout the world to manage painful conditions and TENS equipment can be purchased by the general public so that they can self-administer treatment. There are thousands of experimental and clinical research studies published on TENS and related techniques yet there is uncertainty about the best way to admin…

Spinal Cord Stimulation Implantation: Percutaneous Implantation TechniquesSpinal cord stimulators (SCS) are implantable medical devices used to treat chronic pain of neurologic origin, such as sciatica, intractable back pain, and diabetic. The device generates an electric pulse near the spinal cord’s dorsal surface, providing a parasthesia sensation that alters the perception of pain by the patient, and is typically used in conjunction with conventional medical management. Spinal cord stimulators (SCS) are implantable medical devices used to treat chronic pain of neu…

Electric Pain ControlAfter a very brief introduction to neurophysiology of pain and the influence of weather on pain the selection of an optimal current by the author is presented. This optimal current applied via specially unequal electrodes on distinct sites gives pain reduction of a surprisingly high degree. If the reader follows the advice using the (photodocumented) positions of electrodes the same degree of pain reduction will be reached to the benefit of the patient. Forms for organizing a pain clinic and amp…

Pain Treatment by Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS): A Practical ManualAbundant evidence indicates that TENS can be used effectively to alleviate certain pain syndromes. For patients suffering from chronic musculo-skeletal pain in particular, TENS offers an alternative means of pain management. This book addresses the need among physiotherapists for a practical manual on the application of this relatively new technique. Numerous illustrations provide guidelines for the choice of stimulation parameters, the selection of electrode positions, as well as other aspects …
