0

at the end of a sine pulse, will there be a charge?

no

1

a therapeutic wave should be blank

symmetrical

2

electric stimulates blank to modulate pain via the spinal gate

beta

3

level of physio response that excites nerve/muscle membranes which changes permeability

cellular

4

protein synthesis, fibroblasts, osteoblasts and modifying microcirculation are all at the blank level

cellular

5

level of physio response that modifies joint mobility, muscle contractility, muscle pumping, microvasculature, movement of proteins and lymphatics

segmental

6

speed of conduction depends upon diameter of blank and blank

nerve fiber, myelination

7

fastest nerve fiber

alpha motor

8

brainstem is for blank

motor

9

brain is for blank

sensory

10

amplitude and duration below curve for a particular nerve

sub threshold

11

resistance in strength duration curve depends on

fat, hydration,

12

minimum current amplitude with a very long pulse duration required to produce an ap is called blank

rheobase

13

the minimum duration it takes to stimulate that tissue at twice the rheobase amplitude

chronaxie

14

intensity controls peripheral nerve axon blank

recruitment

15

TENS

transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation

16

low rate TENS can control pain for blank

4-5 hours

17

interferential current is most indicated for blank

pain of known origin

18

current used for wound healing and muscle stim most often

high volt pulsed current
