TMS for fibromyalgia

TMS is an innovative non-invasive treatment that aims to relieve the symptoms of fibromyalgia. There is sufficient evidence to show that the application of low or high frequency magnetic pulses to the right and/or left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) significantly reduces chronic pain and relieves symptoms in fibromyalgia.


Fibromyalgia syndrome is a chronic disease that causes generalized pain throughout the body, accompanied by chronic fatigue, sleepiness, memory and mood disorders. The etiology is unknown. Fibromyalgia is thought to be most likely caused by a biochemical imbalance in certain regions of the brain and the way the central nervous system conducts and responds to pain sensation.
