Abstract:
Introduction: Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is used to reduce pain. TENS is applied as conventional TENS (50-100 Hz, causing paraesthesia) or acupuncture-like TENS (AL-TENS). AL-TENS is inconsistently characterised and research comparing its hypoalgesic effects to conventional TENS is lacking. Aim: To compare the hypoalgesic effects of acupuncture-like transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (AL-TENS) and conventional TENS.
