Effect of neuromuscular electrical stimulation in a patient with Sjogren’s syndrome with dysphagia: a real time videofluoroscopic swallowing study.

Cheung SM, Chen CJ, Hsin YJ, Tsai YT, Leong CP

Severe dysphagia in a 54 year-old woman with Sjogren’s syndrome with involvement of multiple cranial nerves significantly improved after treatment with neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) in combination with a swallowing rehabilitation program. The swallowing response was assessed in real time using a videofluoroscope. Immediate improvement in the tongue retraction force,...

Neuromuscular electrical stimulation prevents skeletal muscle dysfunction in adjuvant-induced arthritis rat.

Himori K, Tatebayashi D, Kanzaki K, Wada M, Westerblad H, Lanner JT, Yamada T

Skeletal muscle weakness is a prominent feature in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). In this study, we investigated whether neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) training protects against skeletal muscle dysfunction in rats with adjuvant-induced arthritis (AIA). AIA was produced by intraarticular injection of complete Freund’s adjuvant into the knees of Wistar...

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation Compared to Volitional Exercise for Improving Muscle Function in Rheumatoid Arthritis: A Randomized Pilot Study.

Piva SR, Khoja SS, Toledo FGS, Chester-Wasko M, Fitzgerald GK, Goodpaster BH, Smith CN, Delitto A

The aim of this study was to compare the feasibility and effectiveness of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) with that of high-intensity volitional resistance training for improving muscle structure and function and physical function in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). We also compared pre-intervention and post-intervention values of myocyte characteristics. In...

Effectiveness of Exercise on Functional Mobility in Adults with Cerebral Palsy: A Systematic Review.

Lawrence H, Hills S, Kline N, Weems K, Doty A

We identified evidence evaluating the effect of exercise on functional mobility in adults (aged 18 y or older) with cerebral palsy (CP). An exhaustive search was conducted using the electronic databases PubMed, MEDLINE, CINAHL, PsycINFO, SPORTDiscus, and Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews from the earliest available evidence (1975) to the...

Rheumatoid arthritis: the role of the kinder and gentler therapies.

Swezey RL

Rehabilitative therapies, as adjuncts to pharmacological and surgical therapies in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), help minimize pain and inflammation, improve functional capabilities, and, above all, enhance quality of life. The effects of heat, cold, and electrical stimulation on neurohumoral, inflammatory, and immunological mechanisms has been noted, although knowledge about their mode...
