Abstract

Purpose : Clinical chronic neuropathic pain is often resistant to currently used pharmacotherapeutic applications. A number studies have shown that pulsed magnetic field (PMF) application may ameliorate the pain associated with damages, surgeries or diseases. However, possible potential mechanisms of PMF treatments have not been well documented. This study aimed to assess the therapeutic effects of PMF treatment on a Chronic Constriction Injury model (CCI) which mimics clinical chronic neuropathic pain symptoms.
