    Sammanfattning : The effect of short time vibration exposure and tourniquet compression on nerve regeneration in rats was studied with special reference to cell activation. One of the hindlimbs was conditioned by either vibration exposure (5 hours / day - 5 consecutive days) or compression (150-300 mmHg for 30-120 minutes), which was followed by a recovery period of 0-7 days.

  2. 2. Pain influences somatosensory perception : an experimental and clinical study

    Författare :Ann-Sofie Leffler; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :Muscle pain; referred pain; hypoaesthesia; allodynia; musculoskeletal; pain; sensory abnormality; quantitative sensory testing; trapezius myalgia; somatosensory perception; perception thresholds; diffuse noxious inhibitory controls DNIC ; central hyperexcitability; tourniquet test; cold-pressor test.;

    Sammanfattning : The underlying mechanisms maintaining long-term pain localised to musculoskeletal structures and joints are not infrequently unknown. In routine clinical work with such patients insufficient attention has been paid to phenomena indicating altered excitability of the central nervous system (CNS). LÄS MER

  3. 3. Somatosensory dysfunctin in fibromyaligia : implications for pathophysiological mechanisms

    Sammanfattning : Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain syndrome characterized by generalized pain, tenderness, disturbed sleep and pronounced fatigue. The pathophysiology is unknown but peripheral mechanisms (i.e., muscle ischemia) as well as central mechanisms (dysfunction in endogenous pain modulation) have been implicated. LÄS MER
