Electric Muscle Stimulation EMS as an adjunct to exercise therapy the treatment non-acute low back pain

A prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial was performed to investigate the efficacy of electrical muscle stimulation when combined with a therapist-guided, standardized exercise therapy program in the treatment of nonacute low back pain.

 

Eighty patients with low back pain of at least 6 weeks' duration were randomized into the following 2 groups: standardized exercise therapy with functional electrical muscle stimulation or standardized exercise therapy with placebo electrical stimulation.

 

Subjects were evaluated at baseline, 2 months, and 6 months with a standardized back pain questionnaire and objective measurements of lumbar spine function.

 

Exercise therapy was continued for 6 months, but electrical stimulation was discontinued at the 2-month interval.

Of the 80 patients initially enrolled, 42 discontinued or withdrew before completing the entire study protocol.

At the 2-month follow-up interval, subjects in the treatment group had statistically significantly improved lumbar spine function compared with the control subjects.

 

This effect continued during the last 4 months of the study after electrical stimulation had been discontinued.

 

This suggests that electrical muscle stimulation can be an effective adjunctive treatment modality for nonacute low back pain. The effects of this combined therapy seem to last beyond the duration of electrical stimulation treatment. © 2001 by the American Pain Society

Triple-Target Treatment Versus Low-Frequency Electrostimulation for Incontinence
EMS' positive effect on Incontinence

The most common cause of anal incontinence is weakness of muscle groups in the pelvic floor. Targeted training is used to enhance the responsiveness of the spincter muscles.

 

It is impossible for anatomical reasons to train all components of the organ of continence with physical exercises alone.

The effectiveness of EMG-biofeedback for training of the phasic voluntary musculature is significantly enhanced by the addition of medium-frequency electrical stimulation (AM-MF) of the inaccessible smooth muscle and poorly accessible tonic fibers. In the 3T trials, 50% of patients regained continence with a combination od EMG-biofeedback and AM-MF, while only 25% did with EMG-biofeedback alone.

 

AMMF is markedly superior to low-frequency stimulation (LFS), which has been the customary treatment until now. In the present trial, no patient treated with LFS became continent. Three randomized therapeutic trials have now demonstrated that LFS lacks functional efficacy.

Electrostimulation EMS Training
Effects on the Physical Performance of Ice Hockey Players

To summarize, the present study demonstrated that an increase in the eccentric and concentric strength of the knee extensors and skating performance can be achieved in a relatively short period (3 wk) by using EMS training.

 

As a practical recommendation for ice hockey players, it is suggested that EMS training could be used over the season to enhance strength and skating performance without interfering with ice hockey training.

 

Nevertheless, further experiments are needed to determine long-term benefits of the EMS training during ice hockey.

Effects of Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation Training on Endurance Performance

High- and low-frequency NMES (Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation) training can increase functional endurance, with the magnitude of the effects being dependent on the initial condition.

 

That is, inactive patients with advanced disease are more likely to benefit from NMES training than more active patients with stable symptoms and healthy individuals.

 

The most likely explanation for this observation is that the quadriceps muscle, mostly targeted by NMES, is highly involved in several activities of daily living and is therefore less sensitive to improvements in active individuals. We therefore argue that NMES training is particularly useful for patients that are unable or unwilling to participate in daily activities or in regular physical exercise.

Efficacy of Selected Electrical Therapies on Chronic Low Back Pain: A Comparative Clinical Pilot Study

Our conducted research indicates that using electrostimulation with interferential current stimulation penetrating deeper into the tissues results in a significant and long-term elimination of pain, and an improvement of functional ability of patients suffering from low back pain on the basis of an analysis of both subjective and objective parameters.

 

Although TENS currents and HVES are helpful in treatment of discopathy of the lower region of the spine, use of interference currents led to greater remission of symptoms.

 

On the other hand, the research indicates that the use of diadynamic currents appears to be useless in the course of degenerative proliferative disease of the spine (within the scope studied in this paper).

Is neuromuscular electrical stimulation effective for improving pain, function and activities of daily living of knee osteoarthritis patients? A randomized clinical trial.

This study aimed to evaluate the effect of NMES relating to reduction of pain intensity and improvement of mobility, through assessment of pain intensity, functional tests and functional difference was observed between the groups.

 

In our study, we did not find any improvement in any outcome in the control group, which only received educational guidance. The difference in results between our study and the study by Talbot et al.14 was possibly because, in their study, NMES was applied at home without supervision by a professional.

 

Thus, factors such as adherence to treatment and differences in electrode positioning and intensity of electric current may have altered the outcome CONCLUSION NMES, within a rehabilitation protocol for patients with knee osteoarthritis, is effective with regard to improving pain, function and activities of daily living among these patients.
