Description

 
The purpose of this study is to investigate the influence of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) on standing balance, strength, and force control in individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS). The project will include two evaluation sessions (visits) (approximately 110 minutes each) that are separated by 4-6 days. Participants will be randomized into two different TENS treatment groups. There will be no MRI scans or blood draws. Participants can be compensated for completing the study.
