Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To review all randomised and quasi-randomised studies of non-invasive cortical stimulation techniques in the treatment of chronic pain. The key aims of the review are:

  1. To critically evaluate the efficacy of non-invasive cortical stimulation techniques compared to sham controls for chronic pain.

  2. To critically evaluate the influence of altered treatment parameters (i.e. stimulation method, parameters, dosage, site) on the efficacy of non-invasive cortical stimulation for chronic pain.
