Nerve Stimulation May Offer Relief for Fibromyalgia Sufferers
A new study suggests that transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) during physical activity can significantly reduce fibromyalgia associated pain.
Researchers at the University of Iowa (Iowa City, USA) and Vanderbilt University (Nashville, TN, USA) conducted a study involving 301 women suffering from fibromyalgia to evaluate if TENS used during physical activity would improve movement-evoked pain and other patient-reported outcomes. The women were randomly assigned to active-TENS, placebo-TENS, or no-TENS during a two hour period of daily activity for four weeks. TENS was applied to the lumbar and cervicothoracic regions using a modulated frequency (2-125Hz) at the highest tolerable intensity.
