Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a relatively new therapeutic and diagnostic technique that uses non-invasive neuromodulation and has an excellent safety profile. According to recent EAN guidelines on central neurostimulation in chronic pain conditions there is only week evidence for primary motor cortex rTMS in neuropathic pain, while other guidelines on rTMS state a defi nite analgesic effect of high frequency rTMS of the primary motor cortex contra-lateral to pain site in neuropathic painView full article
