Allen Cardiovascular Reactivity and the Presence of Pets, Friends, and Spouses: The Truth About Cats and Dogs
Purpose = examine the effects of the presence of friends, spouses, and pets on cardiovascular reactivity to psychological and physical stress Allen
Results = people with pets had significantly lower HR and BP levels during a resting baseline, significantly smaller increases from baseline levels during the mental arithmetic and cold pressor, and faster recovery. Among pet owners, the lowest reactivity Allen
Conclusions = People perceive pets as important, supportive parts of their lives, and significant cardiovascular and behavioral benefits are associated with those perceptions Allen
Valbona Response of Pain to Static Magnetic Fields in Postpolio Patients
Purpose = determine if the chronic pain frequently presented by postpolio patients can be relieved by application of magnetic fields applied directly over an identified pain trigger point Valbona
Results = The proportion of patients in the active-device group who reported a pain score decrease greater than the average placebo effect was 76%, compared with 19% in the placebo-device group Valbona
Conclusions = The application of a device delivering static magnetic fields of 300 to 500 Gauss over a pain trigger point results in significant and prompt relief of pain in postpolio subjects. Valbona
Winemiller Effect of Magnetic vs Sham-Magnetic Insoles on Plantar heel pain
Purpose = To determine whether magnetic insoles provide greater subjective improvement for treatment of plantar heel pain compared with identical nonmagnetized insoles. Winemiller
Results = No significance between-group differences were found on any outcome variables studied when comparing active vs sham magnets. Winemiller
Conclusions = Static bipolar magnets embedded in cushioned shoe insoles do not provide additional benefit for subjective plantar heel pain reduction when compared with nonmagnetic insoles. Winemiller
Clift The Effect of Monochromatic Infrared Energy on Sensation in Patients With Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy
Purpose = The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of monochromatic infrared energy (MIRE) on plantar sensation in subjects with diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Clift
Results = There were no significant differences between active and placebo groups at any measurement. Clift
Conclusions = Thirty minutes of active MIRE applied 3 days per week for 4 weeks was no more effective than placebo MIRE in increasing sensation in subjects with diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Clinicians should be aware that MIRE may not be an effective m Clift
Leonard Restoration of Sensation, Reduced Pain, and Improved Balance in Subjects With Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy
Purpose = We initiated this study to determine whether treatments with the ATS (anodyne therapy system) would decrease pain and or improve sensation diminished due to DPN under a sham-controlled, double-blind protocol.pain and Leonard
Results = Pain reported on the 10-point visual analog scale decreased progressively from 4.2 at entry to 3.2 after 6 treatments and to 2.3 after 12 treatments. At entry, 90% of subjects reported substantial balance impairment; after treatment, this decre Leonard
Conclusions = ATS treatments improve sensation in the feet of subjects with DPN, improve balance, and reduce pain. Leonard
