Abstract

Surface spinal stimulation with electrical stimulation plays a major role in the management of various neurological disorders and also reduces the spasticity. There are many previous studies where surface spinal stimulation had been used in various neurological disorders and purposes and mostly in these studies low frequency current are used but still there is no study to explain how surface spinal stimulation by two medium frequency currents influences on monosynaptic reflex. In present study Premodular IFC & Russian current by surface spinal stimulation has been used at T-12 & L-1 for 45 minutes to see how it influence on monosynaptic reflex by taking Pre & post readings. The mean, standard deviations were calculated for all variables. After that ANOVA was applied between pre & post reading of all variables after medium frequency currents and after that two currents were compared by paired t- value for all the parameters of monosynaptic reflex. It was concluded that spinal stimulation with medium frequency current resulted in a significant effect on monosynaptic reflex as there was significant effect on H-latency and H-amplitude, however there was non significant effect on H/M ratio & Premodular IFC produced greater effect than the Russian current.
