Effectiveness of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation for Treatment of Hyperalgesia and Pain – Current Rheumatology Reports, Dec 2008

  [ 21 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Josimari M DeSantana, PT, PhD, et al. • www.ProHealth.com • November 20, 2008


Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a nonpharmacologic treatment for pain relief. TENS has been used to treat a variety of painful conditions.

This review updates the basic and clinical science regarding the use of TENS that has been published in the past 3 years (ie, 2005-2008).

• Basic science studies using animal models of inflammation show changes in the peripheral nervous system, as well as in the spinal cord and descending inhibitory pathways, in response to TENS.

• Translational studies show mechanisms to prevent analgesic tolerance to repeated application of TENS.

• This review also highlights data from recent randomized, placebo-controlled trials and current systematic reviews. Clinical trials suggest that adequate dosing, particularly intensity, is critical to obtaining pain relief with TENS.

• Thus, evidence continues to emerge from both basic science and clinical trials supporting the use of TENS for the treatment of a variety of painful conditions while identifying strategies to increase TENS effectiveness.
