Comparison of the effects of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, low level laser, and placebo treatment on temporomandibular joint disorders: a single-blind randomized controlled trial

Clinical use of TENS and LLL treatment for TMD is suggested by quantitatively presenting the effect size of each treatment.

Autonomic responses to tooth clenching and handgrip test

Both handgrip and tooth clenching affect the autonomic nervous system function and painful signs of temporomandibular disorders are interfering with the results of the tests and maybe underestimated in the studies of autonomic responses to both tasks.

Central Sensitization-Based Classification for Temporomandibular Disorders: A Pathogenetic Hypothesis

An alternative classification of TMD based on the presence of Central Sensitization and on individual response to sensory ULFTENS is proposed, which may help to differentiate therapy and aetiology.

A Device Improves Signs and Symptoms of TMD

The ELIBA device is able to significantly reduce TMD-associated myogenous pain and to promote the enhancement of sEMG/KNG values and can be considered as a new device, potentially useful for head-neck pain relief in patients suffering from chronic TMD.

The effects of ULF-TENS on the autonomic nervous system acts on the Limbic System and Hypothalamus to address Axis II issues during neuromuscular dental procedures.

A Positive Emotional-Based Meditation but Not Mindfulness-Based Meditation Improves Emotion Regulation

The findings indicate that contemplative meditation (THM) can positively influence the emotion regulation ability, even when performed by non-meditators and only once, and reveal that faster effects of meditation practices can be obtained by practices that considers either the attentional processing and the positive emotions.

Features of Autonomic and Hormonal Reactivity during Mental Activity in Children and Teenagers

In early adolescence, an increased level of psychoemotional stress associated with increased activity of the HPA-axis leads to a decrease in the reaction to mental stress, and by an age of 14–16 years, the initial functional state of the ANS and HPA -axis tends to improve and, consequently, the reactionto mental stress is normalized.

Management of OSAS: The ELIBA® Device Can Help the Patient?

A case of OSAS treated with a lingual elevator of Balercia (ELIBA®) helps to keep the patient's tongue in the correct position and prevented the tongue from reverting back to the soft tissue spaces in the mouth.

Standard Correction of Vision Worsens EMG Activity of Pericranial Muscles in Chronic TMD Subjects

These results suggest that subjects who are affected by both temporomandibular (TMD) disorders and refractive disorders present with altered control of pericranial musculature tone and higher open-eye electromyographic (EMG) values.



The effect of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation on sympathetic skin response.

Data from this study obtained latency, amplitude and duration of sympathetic skin response (SSR) and skin temperature (ST) from both hands in 15 healthy subjects showed differences between both of groups (AG & NSG) for ST and SSR post--TENS.

Anti-Stress Effects of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) on Colonic Motility in Rats

It is suggested that TENS upregulates hypothalamic OXT expression which acts as an anti-stressor agent and mediates restored colonic dysmotility following chronic stress.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) Improves Upper GI Symptoms and Balances the Sympathovagal Activity in Scleroderma Patients

TENS at GI acupoints offers a potential option in the treatment of upper GI symptoms, but further study is necessary.

Comparison between sensory and motor transcutaneous electrical nervous stimulation on electromyographic and kinesiographic activity of patients with temporomandibular disorder: a controlled clinical trial

The present study demonstrates that the application of TENS is effective in reduce the sEMG activity, as well as in increasing the ID of patients with TMD; the study did not support superior effectiveness of MTS or STS.

Effectiveness of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation for treatment of hyperalgesia and pain

Evidence continues to emerge from both basic science and clinical trials supporting the use of TENS for the treatment of a variety of painful conditions while identifying strategies to increase TENS effectiveness.

Increasing intensity of TENS prevents analgesic tolerance in rats.
