Dear SCENAR enthusiasts,
Here is the recent US study that explored the effects of noninvasive interactive neurostimulation (NIN) on participants with Osteoarthritis of the knee, the most common form of arthritis. Based on studies that had used NIN devices on acupuncture points, the researchers hypothesized that 8 weeks of such therapy, used as a complementary to the traditional care, would reduce knee pain, dysfunction, and stiffness, reduce the impact of the condition on overall wellbeing, and improve health-related quality of life in participants.
Please read the article and find out what the results and outcomes of the study were.
