Simultaneous multiple-modality therapy for tension headaches & neck pain

  [ 34 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Stone RG, Wharton RB • www.ProHealth.com • May 12, 1997


Eighty-one patients suffering from neck pain and tension-type
headaches were treated by the application of a unique physical
therapy device combining transcutaneous electrical nerve
stimulation (TENS), traction, massage, vibration, and
acupressure applied to the forehead, posterior cervical spine,
and scapula. The device employed eight silver silicone
electrodes for modality application. Its safety and
effectiveness were assessed by evaluating patients before and
after treatment. No complication ensued. Statistical analysis
of visual analog scales for neck pain and headache yielded p
values < 0.0001. Analysis of fibromyalgia neck and shoulder
trigger points with three controls gave nonsignificant
results. Conclusions were that 1) the device is safe and
effective as judged by subjective patient input and 2)
fibromyalgia trigger points are unaffected by the treatments.
More objective measures are needed to provide evidence of
efficacy.
