Low frequency therapeutic EMF differently influences experimental muscle pain in female and male subjects.

掲載誌: Bioelectromagnetics 2005; 26 (4): 299-304

この研究は、疼痛治療用機器MD TEMF(EMF Therapeutics、Inc.、Chattanooga)の発生する脈動性半正弦波磁界MFパルス周波数100 Hz磁束密度15 mT rms)を用いた処置における主観的疼痛評点、心拍数動脈血圧について、筋肉痛を実験的に与えた24人の健康なボランティア(12人の女性と12人の男性、平均年齢24.7±3.2歳)用いた二重ブラインド化クロスオーバーデザインで試験した。被験者それぞれは、真の処置および擬似処置のセッション中、脊柱起立筋への5 %の高張食塩水(HS)注入による痛み刺激を受けた。その結果、MFばく露は、女性および男性の主観的痛み推定値に異なる影響を与えた;MFばく露は、女性の平均疼痛レベルおよび疼痛評点の時間積分値を増加させたが、男性ではこれらの特性においてMFばく露による有意差は見られなかった;女性および男性の被験者で、真の処置および擬似処置のセッション中に、痛みに随伴した収縮期および拡張期血圧の上昇が観察された、と報告している。

研究目的(著者による)

To investigate the effects of a low frequency therapeutic magnetic field on subjective pain rating, heart rate, and arterial blood pressure employing experimental muscle pain.

詳細情報

Twelve female and twelve male healthy volunteers participated in this study where each subject served as his/her own control. Muscle pain was induced by intramuscular injection of 5% hypertonic saline into the right erector mucle of the spine.

ばく露装置の詳細 the coil was placed around the body at the L3 vertebral level where the catheter was located
Sham exposure A sham exposure was conducted.
Additional information During the exposure as well as sham exposure, muscle pain was induced by intramuscular injection of hypertonic saline (HS) by an infusion pump connected to the catheter via plastic extension tube. HS was injected into the right erector spinae muscle at the level of L3 spinous process. The muscle pain was induced twice in two separate sessions with at least 2 days interval between them. One session was accompanied by exposure and the other was conducted under sham exposure.

研究の主なアウトカム(著者による)

Exposure to magnetic field differently affected subjective pain estimates in females and males. Exposure to magnetic field increased averaged pain level and time integral of pain ratings in females, whereas no statistically significant difference was observed in males. Pain related elevation of systolic and diastolic blood pressure was found during both real and sham exposure in both genders.
