Effects of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation and Interferential Current on Myofacial Pain Syndrome
Kim, Myung-Jong ; Lee, Jun-Hee ; Choi, Won-Ho ;
Journal of the Korean Academy of Clinical Electrophysiology , volume 2, issue 1, 2004, Pages 1~8
This study was conducted to assess the effect of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation(TENS) and interferential current(IFC) in the patients with myofascial pain syndrome(MPS) on upper trapezius. Twenty patients with MPS on upper trapezius was assigned randomly to TENS group(n=10), IFC group(n=10). In TENS group, TENS was applied to the trigger point. In IFC group, IFC was applied to the trigger point. Duration of treatment was 2 weeks. Effects were assessed before treatment, post treatment by visual analogue scale(VAS), and pain rating score(PRS). Significant change of VAS was noticed in TENS group and IFC group. Significant change of PRS was noticed in TENS group and IFC group. IFC groups were significantly higher than TENS group that of the VAS and PRS. These result showed that IFC is effective treatment method for pain control in patients with MPS.

Journal of the Korean Academy of Clinical Electrophysiology , volume 2, issue 1, 2004, Pages 9~17
The purpose of this study are to determine the proper radiographic measurements for hip deformity in spastic cerebral palsy patients, and the correlation of hip deformity with neurological involvement, ability of ambulation. Thirty children with cerebral palsy(22 males, 8 females) were evaluated by measurement of the migration index, acetabular index, center edge angle from bilateral hip APs(anterior posterior view). The result are as follows; 1. The incidence of hip dislocation, among the thirty children fifteen children were found to be dislocated, and more significantly high in non-walking group than in walking group(p<0.05) and in quadriplegia than in diplegia(p<0.05). 2. When compared to normal hip and dislocation hip, the migration index was significantly higher(p<0.01) and the center edge angle was lower in the dislocation hip than in the normal hip. 3. Correlation of radiological findings in right and left hip, the migration index and the center edge angle were highly correlated(p<0.01). We recommand regular intervals X-ray study for early diagnosis and management of hip dislocation in spastic cerebral palsy.

Jeong, Seong-Gwan ; Lee, Jung-Woo ;
Journal of the Korean Academy of Clinical Electrophysiology , volume 2, issue 1, 2004, Pages 49~57
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of muscle contraction torque and muscle fatigue by low-frequency PC. In this article, We would like to experiment on electrical stimulation, determine optimal forms of stimulation setting. We used normal fourteen subjects(seven women, seven men) without neuromuscular disease and all subjects participated in the 3 session. Torque was measured using a computerized Kin-Com dynamometer for MVIC, MIC, Fatigue tests. The following results were obtained; 1. Torque of man were significantly higher than women in the MIC test(p<.05). 2. Torque of women, man were significantly decreased in the Fatigue test(p<.001). Between woman and man groups were significant difference(p<.05). These results lead us to the conclusion that muscle fatigue was influenced by PC, fatigue of women was higher than man. Therefore, A further studies concerning the electrical stimulation should consider differences between sexes in response to treatment and could enhance the development of the most effective treatment regimens.

Jung, Dae-In ;
Journal of the Korean Academy of Clinical Electrophysiology , volume 2, issue 1, 2004, Pages 59~70
The purpose of this study were to determine the changes between pre, during, intermed, post of each two groups of 16 persons and to compare the effect of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation(TENS) at shenmen of auricular point on experimental pressure pain and tactile threshold measured at both ulnar styloid process and medial malleoli. Sixteen healthy adult men and women, aged 20 to 28 years, were assigned randomly to eight of one groups. Control group received TENS to exception of auricular point. Experimental group received TENS to shenmen of auricular point. Experimental pressure pain and tactile pain threshold at the both ulnar styloid process and medial malleoli was determined with algometer and von frey filament before 10 minute, during 10 minute, intermediate and post 30 min of treatment. In pressure pain and tactile threshold showed a statistically significant increase(p<0.05) ipsilateral and contralateral of treatment group. These results suggest that TENS at shenmen of auricular point has the capability to higher pressure pain and tactile threshold in whole body.

To compare the effectiveness of the hemisling, bobath sling, extension-type sling, and the newly designed Modified Triangular Bobath Sling with Distal Support on a hemiplegic shoulder subluxation. Fourteen hemiplegic patients with shoulder subluxation were evaluated by a simple X-ray with and without the slings and the vertical and horizontal distances on the plain AP views were measurement. The newly designed arm sling was compared in terms of the effects of correction with distal support attached with shoulder saddle sling. The arm sling designed for this study was developed for the purpose of maintaining patients hands in a functional position and performing ROM exercise of the shoulder easily, and prevention or correction to shoulder subluxation. The mean values of the vertical and horizontal distance were compared to determine if there was significant difference of function between the new sling and the conventional slings. The new sling provided the patients with good vertical correction of the subluxation(p<0.05) but did not increase the horizontal distance significantly. These results support the effectiveness of a new sling to decrease subluxation in hemiplegia. Further study on the long term effects or complication of the new sling is recommended.

Jung, Dae-In ;
Journal of the Korean Academy of Clinical Electrophysiology , volume 2, issue 1, 2004, Pages 83~92
This study aims to the influenced factor analysis of spinal cord independence measure(SCIM), on walking velocity, walking endurance, time up & go(TUG), and subject characteristics. The subject of this study were 12 persons with incomplete spinal cord injury(ASIA C, D). All subject ambulatory with or without an assistive device. All participants were assessed on SCIM(score), walking velocity(m/s), walking endurance(m) and TUG(s). The data were analyzed using independent t-test and stepwise multiple regression. The results revealed that no statistical difference was noted in subject characteristics among SCIM, walking velocity, walking endurance, TUG(p>0.5). The independence score, breathing-sphincter control and ambulation were important factors in TUG(31.4%). The results suggest that SCIM may be an inappropriate assessment tool to predict gait ability of patient with incomplete spinal cord injury. Further study about gait speed, gait endurance and TUG by change of SCIM is needed using to patient of incomplete spinal cord injury.
Review of Shoulder Joint Impingement Syndrome
Kim, In-Sup ;
Journal of the Korean Academy of Clinical Electrophysiology , volume 2, issue 1, 2004, Pages 93~100
Shoulder impingement syndrome is cause by the collision of acromion, acrominoclaviclar joint, coracoacromino ligament, coracoid process and synovial sac, biceps brachiialis tendon, rotator cuff muscle. Treatment for Shoulder impingement syndrome is genetally classified into two different methods; preservative method and operational method. Operational method includes rotator cuff sutura, anterior acromioplasty, arthroscope decompression. Preservative method includes rest, medicinal therapy, physical therapy. Physical therapy concentrates on pain control, functional recovery and prevention of disease progress. It is also important for physical therapy to maintain the strength of rotator cuff. Strengthening rotator cuff decreases the collision and helps the stability of shoulder joint. In conclusion, it must be aware that shoulder impingement syndrome and some other shoulder problem demand different treatment, which results in a better outcome.
The Change of Functional Performance Abilities by Resistance Training in Older Adults
Hur, Young-Gu ;
Journal of the Korean Academy of Clinical Electrophysiology , volume 2, issue 1, 2004, Pages 101~109
We developed research strategies for measuring functional performance and proprioception. We determined whether resistance training improves functional performance in the older adult, whether resistance training improves proprioceptive sense, and whether improvement in functional performance and/or proprioception are a direct result of the resistance training or a result of movement independent of strength gains. The answer to these questions will enable those in the sport fitness industry and medical practioners to better advise the growing number of older adults about the benefits of specific types of exercise. The will also enable the medical practitioner to prescribe appropriate exercise to those with limitations in functional ability in attempts to restore independent living.
