How does tDCS work?
Patients receive PainX™ tDCS at Our office based on a personalized schedule that is convenient to them. Most choose to have the stimulation therapy 3 to 5 times a week. While you sit, electrode patches are applied to the head using a specially designed cap or strap. Wires connect the patches to a small battery-powered device that can be placed on a table next to you. For about 20 minutes, mild direct electrical current (DC) then stimulate specific positions of our brain to reduce the pain. Patients typically report a mild tingling sensation during the session that stops at the end.
