  Title Treatment of trigger points with microamperage transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)--(the Electro-Acuscope 80)
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 1986 Jun;9(2):131-34
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

One-half of the students taking part in a double-blind study received a microamperage electrical stimulation of trigger points in the neck and shoulder region with the Electro-Acuscope 80. All the subjects were evaluated by digital palpatory physical examination for the presence of trigger points before each of their treatments. Results indicate that the subjects who received treatment had a higher change of trigger-point indicators compared to those receiving the placebo treatment. A two-tailed t-test indicated significant results (P less than 0.001). It appears that microamperage electrical stimulation is effective in the treatment of trigger points.
