Abstract

Pain in peripheral arterial occlusion disease on walking or at rest is also influenced by factors which are perfusion-independent. Trigger points have been described in the literature; the authors' own investigations have interpreted such pain points as a substrate of a pseudoradicular lumbar irritation. As a soft tissue rheumatological syndrome they lend themselves quite well to electrotherapy. Surprisingly good clinical results are not so much caused by arterial collateralisation but instead the result of the known effectiveness of electrotherapy of a myalgic syndrome. Methods of stable galvanization, electrotherapy stimulation and transdermal electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) are discussed.
