Following the publication of the original article [1], we were notified that on page 6 the authors attribute to Dr. Ammendolia et al. the demonstration of “an increase in blood flow to the spinal cord and cauda equina with TESCS, and the magnitude of effect was dependent on the intensity of the electrical stimulus.” In fact, Dr. Ammendolia and colleagues were citing the original research reported in Budgell BS, Sovak G, Soave D. TENS augments blood flow in somatotopically linked spinal cord segments and mitigates compressive ischemia. Spinal Cord. 2014 Oct;52(10):744–8.

Therefore, reference 100 was corrected to cite the original work of Budgell et al.

The original article has been corrected.
