ABSTRACT
Background: In recent years it has been shown that nonpharmacological therapy has its advantages in treating diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN) because of the local treatment possibility, as well as, safety and low prices. Pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) of low frequency improves pain, paresthesias and vibration sensation. The results of the treatment depend on the parameters of the field. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of PEMF of different low - frequencies on neuropathic symptoms. Methods: The prospective controlled study included a group of 71 patients with diabetic polyneuropathy electrophysiologically confirmed. The patients were randomly divided into two groups: group with pulsed electromagnetic field therapy of 10 Hz (n = 28) and group with pulsed electromagnetic field therapy of 25 Hz (n = 43). Neuropathic symptoms were evaluated before and after the treatment by using Michigan Neuropathy Screening Instrument (MNSI) questionnaire and Numerical Rating Scale (NRS). Results The results of neuropathic questionnaire showed a considerable decrease of neuropathic symptoms and signs after the therapy, p<0,001. There wasn't a significant difference in results of neuropathic questionnaire compared to the low -frequency pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, χ² = 1,657, df = 4, p = 0,799. The analgetic effect of PEMF frequency of 10 Hz and 25 Hz was significantly different. NRS pain scale has shown rather lower values after the therapy among the patients that were treated with PEMF of 25 Hz, p<0,001. Conclusion. Although the precise mechanism of effect of pulsed electromagnetic field of low-frequencies at neuropathic symptoms hasn't been completely known, its application helps in decrease of neuropathic symptoms.
