University of Iowa Professor of Physical Therapy and Rehab Science and ICTS pilot grant recipient Kathleen Sluka, PT, PhD, contributed to a February 2011 article that appeared in Pain. The researchers investigated whether transcuataneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), a noninvasive pain control method, produced analgesic tolerance in humans. Their findings suggest that repeated high-frequecy and low-frequency TENS do produce anaglesic tolerance during treatment. Read the full abstract here.
