TENS Efficacy on Acute Back Pain in an Emergency Department Triage

Start date: April 2, 2019
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) devices produce a gentle electrical stimulation that when applied through pads applied directly to the skin, has a noticeable effect in reducing pain associated with various types of injuries and ailments. Several recent studies have shown efficacy when used for acute pain specific to primary dysmenorrhea, renal colic, lower-extremity pain, and pain associated with spinal cord injury, and was achieved without adverse effects. This study is intended to compare the effects of TENS units on acute back pain on ambulatory patients who are awaiting emergency medical treatment, to uncover if a statistically-significant analgesic effect is noted compared to a placebo device.
