Acupuncture excites the pain inhibitory nerve fibers for a short period of time, thereby blocking pain, but the effects of acupuncture can last for some months after the acupuncture needle has been removed, and nothing in the Gate Theory really explains this prolonged effect. Acupuncture is a valuable treatment in a variety of non-painful diseases and the Gate Theory makes no attempt to explain the mechanism of acupuncture in the treatment of these diseases.

ENDORPHIN SYSTEM---THREE CENTERS
---slower onset and long duration
---called “acupuncture like TENS” =produce “CHI”
---given frequently (more than daily)=tolerance
( morphine like)
HIGH FREQUENCY (50-200HZ), LOW INTESITY
SPINAL CORD AND MIDBRAIN (by pass endorphin
---conventional “TENS” (gate theory) system)-
---rapid onset and short duration
---no cumulative effects
TREATMENT FAILURE= deficiency of endorphines or deficiency of opiate receptors
