Thresholds were assessed at 13 symmetrical points on each side of the head and neck, at the deltoid muscle and at the median finger. The pressure range of the instrument proved insufficient to study the pain perception threshold on the finger, however. Two different examiners carried out one or… CONTINUE READING
