An association between phantom limb sensations and stump skin conductance during transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) applied to the contralateral leg: a case study
This report describes a placebo-controlled study of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) applied to the contralateral lower leg and outer ears of an amputee with non-painful phantom sensations. The subject ...
Psychophysiological contributions to phantom limbs
(Canadian Psychiatric Association, 1992)
Recent studies of amputees reveal a remarkable diversity in the qualities of experiences that define the phantom limb, whether painless or painful. This paper selectively reviews evidence of peripheral, central and ...
Auricular transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) reduces phantom limb pain
The present paper evaluates the efficacy of low frequency, high intensity auricular transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) for the relief of phantom limb pain. Auricular TENS was compared with a no-stimulation ...
Pain ‘memories’ in phantom limbs: review and clinical observations
