Iowa City, Iowa 52242


Purpose:

Our primary hypothesis is that TENS decreases pain with movement by reducing hyperalgesia. Minimizing the severe pain experienced during required activities in the immediate postoperative period will promote functional recovery and prevent the development of new chronic pain syndromes.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Primary osteoarthritis of the knee - Speak English - Unilateral total knee replacement Exclusion Criteria: - No ambulation, assisted or otherwise - Use of TENS by subject in past 5 yrs - Current use of TENS by someone else in subject's household - Stroke or other condition which seriously impairs sensation in legs or ability to follow directions. - Condition that precludes use of TENS (pacemaker, allergy to nickel, etc.) - Chronic pain (other than in surgical knee) that is currently being treated or is severe. (Do not exclude for fibromyalgia).
