About

Sleep disorders are among the non-motor signs more common in Parkinson's disease (PD). This case series evaluated the effects of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) on acupoints in the self-assessment of sleep in 14 PD patients classified between stages 1 and 3 of Hoehn and Yahr original (HY). Patients were assessed using the Sleep Scale for Parkinson's Disease (PDSS) and subjected to treatment with eight TENS sessions on acupoints, with the current Burst. We used the paired sample t-test, considering p ≤ 0.05.

Trial design

14 participants in 1 patient group

Transcutaneous Electric Stimulation
Experimental group
Description:
Eight sessions were held, once a week, lasting twenty minutes. For this purpose, the electrodes of the acoustic surface Taichong (LR-3), Hé gǔ (Ll-4), Yanglingquan (GB-34) and Neiguan (PC-6) connected to the TENS equipment (EL 608, brand NKL). The current of choice for a BURST type, with intermittent pulses, isolated at a frequency of 2 Hz, ranging from 1 to 10 mA.
Treatment:
Procedure: Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation
