  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation for pain control

    Publication Year: 1983, Page(s):14 - 18
    Cited by:  Papers (3)  |  Patents (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3361 KB)

    The authors first describe two theories of sensation-specificity theory and pattern convergence theory- and the forms of treating pain they suggested. They then describe the development of TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) from the Melzack-Wall pain model, and its application to the treatment of chronic and acute pain. Optimal electrode placement is discussed. Research since the M... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1312 KB)

    The role of electromechanical transduction in the structure-function-property relationships of bone and other connective tissues in vivo is considered, and the piezoelectric behavior of bone is discussed. The techniques used to stimulate connective tissues are examined, namely, implanted electrodes, inductive coupling, and capacitive coupling. View full abstract»

    The physiological mechanisms underlying electroacupuncture are examined, and the electrical characteristics of this treatment procedure are examined. The primary underlying mechanisms for its clinical effectiveness seems to involve an endogeneous pain inhibitory system that includes both endorphin and non-endorephin systems. No neurophysiological evidence has as yet delineated the exact anatomical... View full abstract»

  • A review of electromagnetically enhanced soft tissue healing

    Cited by:  Papers (6)  |  Patents (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1258 KB)

    The historical background is briefly reviewed, and current research efforts are described. The effect of electromagnetic radiation on healing, of soft tissue cells, and on bacteria are discussed. It is concluded that considerable evidence exists for potentially using electrical stimulation to enhance healing of soft tissues, but that more detailed and longer-term basic and clinical studies are cle...

  • Nerve & Limb Regeneration

    Publication Year: 1983, Page(s):32 - 39

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (6133 KB)

    The effects of applied electric fields on the problems of nerve regeneration in vitro and on nerve and limb regeneration in vivo are discussed. The results obtained form the former support the thesis that applied direct current preferentially increases neurite outgrowth to the cathode and increases neuronal survival in a manner similar to that obtained with nerve growth factor. The mechanism by wh... View full abstract»
