Abstract: Objectives: To compare the effectiveness of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) and microcurrent electrical nerve stimulation (MENS) on masticatory muscles pain bruxism patient. Materials and Methods : A total of 60 subjects with the clinical diagnosis of bruxism were randomly allocated to two study groups. Group A received TENS (50 Hz, pulse width 0.5 mSec, intensity 0-60 mA for 20 minutes for a period of seven days) and Group B received MENS (0.5 Hz, intensity 1,000 μA for 20 minutes for a period of seven days). The outcome measures were assessed in term of Visual Analog Scale (VAS) and digital pressometer of 2 Kgf. Results : The study showed significant change in intensity of pain as per VAS score ( P ≤ 0.0001) and tenderness as per digital pressometer ( P ≤ 0.0001). Conclusion : MENS could be used as an effective pain-relieving adjunct to TENS in the treatment of masticatory muscle pain due to bruxism.

Abstract: purpose: to analyze the physiological effects of the application of the transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (tens) technique on patients, to provide guidance for successful implementation in clinical practice. tens technique involves the application of a pulsed electric current, traditionally used for pain control. different tens programming parameters should be adjusted, taking into account that the different programming options will activate various physiological mechanisms. extensive studies in animals and in healthy subjects have been conducted recently, in order to elucidate the physiological effects produced in the body when tens is applied. material and methods: we conducted a comprehensive review of published scientific literature on the use of the tens technique and its physiological effects. relevant trials were identified through a search of various databases and reference books on the subject, from the library of the ceu-cardenal herrera university of valencia. results: we found 97 references that met the inclusion criteria. conclusions: tens produces its analgesic effect by activation of afferents of deep tissues by stimulation of primary aβ large diameter afferent fibers. the physiological mechanisms of action of tens at low and high frequency are different, although both occur at peripheral, spinal and supraspinal level, and are based primarily on the activation of different opioid receptors. with the proper combination of parameters, tens reduces pain from the first minute of application. regarding the duration of analgesic effect after a treatment session, it is known the importance of using higher intensities for greater duration of post-session effect. the daily repeated application of tens with the same parameters will lead to the development of tolerance. although there has been speculation about a vascular effect of the application of tens, it only has an effect on peripheral circulation when applied at intensity sufficient to achieve s

Abstract: the cortical response of the somatosensorial evoked potential of the posterior tibial nerve has shown, in different research works, a great variability in terms of the results obtained by different authors. the aims of this paper were to evaluate in a sample of healthy adult individuals the topographical distribution of the cortical response of the somatosensorial evoked potential of the posterior tibial nerve by using a protocol registration with 19 derivations from the international system 10/20 in the medicid-4 team. eighteen adult individuals were studied. in each individual the cortical response was p40, remaining the 19 registration canals, modifying the filter between 0.5 and 300 hz, and the sampling frequency was modified to 1000 hz. results show a maximum amplitude of the p40 in the middle line. in addition, simultaneously, such response is registered in the central parietal ipsilateral region, with no great intraindividual and interindividual variability. as a conclusion, the stimulation of the tibial nerve and peak p40 showed a cortical central parietal distribution in the middle line, as well as ipsilaterally, with maximum amplitude in the latter. p40 was obtained paradoxically with a greater amplitude towards the same region of the stimulated site.

Abstract: Diabetic neuropathy is the primary complication that the most likely cause of diabetes-related morbidity and mortality. It is one of the most important factors in the emergence planting ulceration in diabetic patients. Prevention of this complication is difficult, particularly because there is no reliable method to test the sensitivity of the plant. It supports the theory that the posterior tibial nerve is at risk of developing chronic compression due to edema. This hypothesis was supported by a comparative study conducted by Lee and Damien M. Dauphinée Doohi, using ultrasound on the ankle, resulting in the conclusion that the diameter of the tibial nerve in diabetic patients with neuropathy was significantly higher than in diabetic patients that did not have polyneuropathy (24.0 vs. 12 mm square). Solution in trying to resolve this problem belongs compression AL Dellon, who noted that after carpal tunnel decompression at hand (which belongs to George Phalen, MD, of Cleveland, Ohio in 1950) major improvements in the sensitivity of fingers hand, decided to try to make the same type of foot surgery and diabetic patients.

Abstract: Functional recovery is the final goal in the treatment of spinal cord injury. However, to date, few treatment strategies have demonstrated significant locomotor improvement in animal experiments. By using tail nerve electrical stimulation (TANES) as an open-field locomotor training method combined with glial scar ablation and cell transplantation, we have successfully promoted locomotor recovery in rats with chronic spinal cord contusion injury. The purpose of the present study is to further investigate the mechanism of TANES and its effect on electrophysiology. Spinal cord segment T10 of female, adult Long-Evans rats was contused using the NYU impactor device with 25 mm height setting. After injury, rats were randomly divided into three groups. Group I was used as a control without any treatment, group II and group III were subjected to basic treatment including glial scar ablation and transplantation of olfactory lamina propria 6 weeks after injury, and group III received TANES-induced open-field locomotor training weekly after basic treatment. All animals were allowed to survive 22 weeks, except some rats which were transected. Basso, Beattie, and Bresnahan (BBB) open-field locomotor rating scale, horizontal ladder rung walking test, and electrophysiological tests were used to assess the restoration of functional behavior and conduction. Results showed that TANES significantly improves locomotor recovery and spinal cord conduction, reflex, as well as significantly reduces the occurrence of autophagia. Additionally, after transection, trained rats still maintained higher BBB score than that of control rats. This may be related to the activity-dependent plasticity promoted by TANES-induced locomotor training.
