Treatment of Fibromyalgia Using Deep Shaped-Field Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation a Clinical Feasibility Study
Deep shaped-field transcranial magnetic stimulation is a new type of transcranial magnetic stimulation technology which may provide a drug-free method for treating fibromyalgia.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness and the durability of effect of Deep shaped-field repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in men and women diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
