This pilot study hypothesizes that use of the Regenesis Provant Wound Therapy System (a radiofrequency device) twice daily over venous stasis ulcers (wounds thought to occur due to imprope...
This study is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of the Provant Therapy System in improving localized nerve growth and skin perfusion in subjects with painful peripheral diabetic neuro...
A Randomized, Sham-Controlled, Double-Blind, Crossover Study to Evaluate Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy on Pain Sensitivity to Different Qualities of Experimentally Induced Pain in Subjects With Painful Peripheral Diabetic Neuropathy
Evaluate the effectiveness of the Provant Therapy System compared to sham on pain sensitivity and nervous system response to various qualities of experimentally induced pain in the upper a...
A study to demonstrate the effectiveness of PEMF treatment compared to sham treatment in changing Vibration Perception Threshold (VPT) and Thermal Sensory (QST) in patients with diabetic p...
Part A of this trial is a multi-center, prospective, double-blinded, sham-controlled, randomized clinical trial. Part A will evaluate PEMF treatment compared to sham treatment in patients ...
The consequences of chronic pain and associated disabilities to the patient and to the health care system are well known. Medication is often the first treatment of choice for chronic pain, although s...
Pain reduction is a primary goal of physical therapy for patients who present with acute or persistent pain conditions. The purpose of this review is to describe a mechanism-based approach to physical...
Low back pain frequently involves a multifactorial etiology and requires medical attention. The aim of the study was to assess the associations among pain, posture, and autonomic nervous system functi...
The human pain system can be bidirectionally modulated by high-frequency (HFS; 100Hz) and low-frequency (LFS; 1Hz) electrical stimulation of nociceptors leading to long-term potentiation or depression...
Although radiation therapy (RT) is an important part of treatment for cancer pain, prediction of the patient's pain response remains difficult. We evaluated the characteristics of patients, their tumo...
A form of therapy that employs a coordinated and interdisciplinary approach for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those experiencing pain.
Scales, questionnaires, tests, and other methods used to assess pain severity and duration in patients or experimental animals to aid in diagnosis, therapy, and physiological studies.
Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
A type of pain that is perceived in an area away from the site where the pain arises, such as facial pain caused by lesion of the VAGUS NERVE, or throat problem generating referred pain in the ear.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
