Experimental: Movement-Evoked Pain during TENS treatment
Participants performed several physical tasks while using the HeatTens device (HV-F311-E). During these tasks, participants needed to rate their pain.
Device: HeatTens (HV-F311-E)
(1) 2~108 Hertz (modulation program inside); (2) 100 microseconds (pulse duration)
No Intervention: Movement-Evoked Pain
Participants performed several physical tasks during with their pain was assessed.
- Movement Evoked Pain [ Time Frame: Change in pain score between (1) Movement Evoked Pain measures assessed without TENS application and (2) Movement-Evoked Pain measured assessed while using TENS application. Between both measures, a wash out period of 30 minutes was introduced. ]Pain that is experienced in response to 2 physical tasks: the Back Performance Scale and the 5 minutes walk test. Participants performed 5 physical tasks (= 1) grasping toes with fingertips in a sitting position; 2) forward bending from standing; 3) picking up paper from standing; 4) long-sitting from supine and 5) lifting a 5kg box from floor to table) and walked for 5 minutes. Participants provided a pain rating on a 11 points Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) with the endpoints no pain" (0) and "excruciating pain" (10). Pain will be assessed during the physical tasks (=at the same moment).
