Evaluation of a nonsurgical, muscle-stimulating system to elevate soft tissues of the face and neck.

Taub AF

Non-invasive procedures for tissue tightening and elevation are new frontiers in dermasurgery. Current methods for achieving a “nonsurgical face-lift” include radiofrequency and infrared light devices which disrupt non-covalent collagen bonds and stimulate collagen production. This study evaluated a novel treatment protocol designed to achieve a nonsurgical face-lift with electrical stimulation...

Effectiveness of Faradic and Russian currents on plantar flexor muscle spasticity, ankle motor recovery, and functional gait in stroke patients.

Ganesh GS, Kumari R, Pattnaik M, Mohanty P, Mishra C, Kaur P, Dakshinamoorthy A

Spasticity is a major disabling symptom in patients post stroke. Though studies have demonstrated that electrical stimulation (ES) can reduce spasticity and improve passive ankle range of motion (ROM), not many studies have evaluated the effectiveness of ES on active ankle ROM. The purpose of this study was to determine...

Transdermal approaches to pain in sports injury management.

Bolin DJ

There is much lore about training room treatments for common overuse and traumatic musculoskeletal injuries. This review looks at the evidence behind many of the common transdermal treatments that are purported to reduce pain and inflammation and improve function. These include cryotherapy, laser treatments, electrical stimulation, ultrasound and phonophoresis, extracorporeal...
