Large Treatment Effect With Extended Home-Based Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Over Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex in Fibromyalgia: A Proof of Concept Sham-Randomized Clinical Study
Brietzke et al, 2019. The Journal of Pain.
- A randomised, double-blind controlled trial.
- Home-based Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) vs. home-based sham-tDCS.
- 20 participants were randomly assigned to 60 sessions of either tDCS or sham-tDCS, applied to the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC).
- Pain scores were reduced by 62.06% in the tDCS group, compared to 24.92% in the sham group.
