A US study showed that transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) in patients with fibromyalgia can improve symptoms in the short term while moving.

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled cross-over study, scientists from the University of Iowa tested the effects of TENS in 40 patients with fibromyalgia and, accordingly, central hyperexcitability and reduced pain relief. The subjects were divided into three groups according to the randomness principle (active TENS, placebo-TENS and no TENS).

Various tests were carried out before and after the single treatment. At rest, there was a similar average pain intensity in all groups. The pain intensity and exhaustion improved significantly in the active-TENS group compared to both control groups. Shortly after TENS treatment, the pressure pain limit in the treated areas on the spine also increased. Functional improvements could not be achieved with the therapy. (pm)
