About

Physical exercises and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) are both known to reduce chronic pain in structured laboratory studies. The aim of this study is to assess the efficacy of this combined treatment in clinical settings.

Full description

Chronic pain patients who are going to the physiotherapy clinic to receive tDCS treatment sessions are evaluated in order to assess the efficacy of tDCS in clinical settings. Physiotherapists prescribe physical exercises adapted to the patients conditions. Patients performed their physical exercises every time they received a tDCS treatment, but were also recommended to continue their physical exercises program at home after completion of physiotherapy visits. Concerning tDCS treatment, patients were encouraged to receive 1 tDCS session per day for 5 consecutive days.
