Abstract

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) has been shown to be effective for the reduction of experimentally induced ischemic pain in the upper limb. No studies have been published on the effects of TENS for lower limb ischemic pain. The aim of this study was to investigate the pain-modifying effect of TENS on experimentally induced ischemic pain in the lower limb. A modified Submaximal Effort Tourniquet Test-induced ischemic pain in the nondominant lower limb of 27 healthy volunteers was carried out.
