Background: Lumbosacral radiculopathy is a common entity in clinical practice and is frequently caused by disc herniation or degenerative changes in vertebrae. Most patients recover with conservative care, including physical therapy. Objective: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the immediate neurophysiologic effect of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation on the pain intensity and H-reflex in patients with lumbosacral radiculopathy. Methods: Twenty male patients (age ranged from… CONTINUE READING
