New tDCS Treatment and Chronic Pain

There is intense ongoing research into the mechanisms of tDCS effects on chronic pain and other neurological conditions.

In fact, in recent studies, tDCS was found to change the opioid receptor (brain chemical system that is activated by painkiller medications) activity and to increase the pain threshold.

To learn if tDCS or other new or alternative treatments are right for you, please contact Dr. Friedman at 561-842-PAIN (7246).

 

More Evidence of Objective Tests for Fibromyalgia

New research from two prominent medical journals confirm a relationship between Small Fiber Neuropathy and Fibromyalgia. The studies show objective evidence that at least some cases of fibromyalgia are due to a measurable nerve disorder that causes neuropathic pain. 

These insights reinforce the idea that treatments for neuropathic pain may also help many patients with a fibromyalgia diagnosis.  Consequently, some patients with a diagnosis of fibromyalgia will benefit from further nerve testing.
