Överskrift Simultaneous multiple-modality therapy for tension headaches and neck pain.
Beskrivning 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.
