The aim of the study was pain management in rheumatoid arthritis patients (n=10) by applying the method of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. The 10-point visual analogue scale was used before stimulation and following it. The total number of pain measurement tests in the joints was 180. The estimated average pain before stimulation was evaluated by 6.56+/-0.17 points and following it by 5.88+/-0.18 points. The average pain decrease after stimulation (Pt<0.05) was 10.4 %, compared… CONTINUE READING
