Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

Fibromyalgia is a complex chronic disorder defined by widespread musculoskeletal pain and muscle
tenderness, and is associated with a multitude of co-occurring health issues including fatigue. One
promising new treatment option is Theta Burst Stimulation (TBS); a technique that changes the activity of
neurons in the brain. The proposed study aims to conduct a randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled
proof of principle trial to establish the efficacy of TBS treatment in fibromyalgia.If successful, this study
will provide evidence for a new treatment option for fibromyalgia that is likely applicable to related
disorders such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
