Cortical electrostimulation for Fibromyalgia

Brain activityCortical Electrostimulation for Fibromyalgia

By Adrienne Dellwo, About.com Guide

Research Brief

A study published this month in the journal Pain Medicine supports earlier findings that noninvasive cortical electrostimulation may be somewhat effective against fibromyalgia symptoms.

In noninvasive cortical electrostimulation, a practitioner attaches electrodes to the outside of the head and delivers an electric current to the cerebral cortex (outer layer of gray matter on the upper part of the brain.)

In this study, researchers say participants had modest improvements in pain, tender point count, fatigue and sleep without significant side effects. They're recommending it as a part of the fibromyalgia treatment regimen, not as a stand-alone treatment. (It's rare for any single treatment to adequately manage all fibromyalgia symptoms.)
