Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation for acute neuropathic pain due to spinal cord injury

Takeaway

  • Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) resulted in acute neuropathic pain relief in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI).

Why this matters

    Neuropathic pain is common in SCI patients, but treatment effectiveness is limited; new techniques to alleviate pain and improve outcomes in these patients are needed.
