  The effect of Microcurrent Electrical Nerve Stimulation (MENS) was evaluated and compared with occlusal splint therapy in temporomandibular disorders (TMD) patients with muscle pain. Twenty TMD patients were divided into four by: Electrotherapy is the use of electrical energy as a medical treatment. In medicine, the term electrotherapy can apply to a variety of treatments, including the use of electrical devices such as deep brain stimulators for neurological disease. The term has also been applied specifically to the use of electric current to speed wound healing. Additionally, the term "electrotherapy" or MeSH: D Carol Kennedy, in Neck and Arm Pain Syndromes, Deep neck extensors. Isolated recruitment of a segmental muscle is difficult, but a ‘muscle energy’ type technique or electrical muscle stimulation may help teach the patient to feel the desired localized contraction of multifidus or a posterior suboccipital muscle (Fig ).The patient can then practise an auto-resisted .
