Chronic pain is a common health problem, for which the treatment is complex and challenging. Non-invasive brain stimulation techniques, specifically transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS), show promise as a well-tolerated new therapeutic modality with few side effects. This is supported by growing evidence of an association between altered neuronal oscillations and chronic pain. However, to date, only a handful of studies with variable methodology have evaluated tACS for potential applicability to patients with chronic pain.
