Nociception is the most prevalent pain mechanism in Parkinson disease (PD). It negatively affects quality of life, and there is currently no evidence-based treatment for its control. Burst spinal cord stimulation has been used to control neuropathic pain and recently has been shown to relieve pain of nociceptive origin. In this study, we hypothesize that burst transspinal magnetic stimulation (bTsMS) reduces nociceptive pain in PD.
