In fact all the patients treated completed the therapeutic cycle and manifested a significant improvement of the clinical and electromyographic picture. The electromagnetic fields had produced a so-called “tail effect", continuing after the suspension of therapy, as if the biophysical action interfered with the pathogenetic mechanisms of the disease, probably by inhibition of the inflammatory process or due to an antiedema action of the electromagnetic fields at level of carpal canal and to an observed variation of plasmatic level of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (AMPc), oxygen free radicals and prostaglandin E2 (7,11).
