Total Sample Size
|Panagos et al. 2004|
|Population: Type of pain=nociceptive musculoskeletal shoulder pain.|
Treatment: A concentric field type magnet (500 gauss) was placed over one shoulder for 1 hr.
Outcome Measures: Short form McGill Pain Questionnaire (SF-MPQ); Visual Analogue Scale (VAS)
|1. On SF-MPQ, pain intensity decreased (p<0.01).|
2. Significant decreases also were noted in severity of sharp and stabbing pain, and degree of tenderness (p=0.033, p=0.02, and p=0.021, respectively).
3. Pain intensity on VAS and in response to pressure did not change significantly with magnet application.
