Abstract

Transcutaneous neural stimulation is a relatively new method of pain control, the short- and long-term success of which has yet to be fully documented. In this study, electrical stimulus parameters and electrode locations were carefully monitored in 23 patients who received satisfactory relief of chronic pain with electrical stimulation. These patients were chosen from 100 patients treated with this modality on a trial basis. Analysis demonstrates that a large percentage of patients have good to excellent pain relief by employing electrical parameters within restricted ranges.
