Theta-burst versus 20 Hz repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation in neuropathic pain: A head-to-head comparison.



High-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has been shown to reduce neuropathic pain, but intermittent "theta-burst" stimulation (iTBS) could be a better alternative because of shorter duration and greater ability to induce cortical plasticity. Here we compared head-to-head the pain-relieving efficacy of the two modalities when applied daily for 5 days to patients with neuropathic pain.
