VILLANUEVA, V. et al. New therapies: Neuromodulation in the treatment of low back and cervical pain. Rev. Soc. Esp. Dolor [online]. 2007, vol.14, n.3, pp.211-219. ISSN 1134-8046.
The high incidence and prevalence of low back and cervical pain in industrialized societies ensues its importance for health systems. These conditions generate a high consumption of health resources and a significant loss of working hours. Among the therapeutic options for the treatment of these processes, Percutaneous Neuromodulation Therapy (PNT) is an innovative procedure within the range of therapies available. PNT, unlike other neuromodulation systems, is less invasive and has a considerable safety and efficacy profile. A review of the relevant published data regarding this technique and a brief report on its preliminary results for its use in our country are made.
