The use of tDCS in the treatment of neuropathic back pain: a case study

A cathodal reference was applied to the contralateral shoulder, in contrast to the contralateral supraorbital region suggested in some studies. Significant gains were obtained from the initial phase of treatment that extended over 14 sessions, with pain reducing from a rating score of 7/10 to less than 1/10. Comorbid clinical depression was also reversed from a rating of 8/10 to less than 2/10. Significant pain reduction following the initial phase of treatment was found to endure for 21 days, with the client then returning for single session re-treatment every three weeks..
