The Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre at the Alfred Hospital is currently seeking volunteers for a clinical trial of a non-medication investigational treatment for fibromyalgia called repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS). rTMS is a painless, safe, and non-invasive means of stimulating nerve cells in the brain.We are conducting this study to see whether we can reduce the symptoms associated with fibromyalgia.
To be involved, participants must be aged between 18 and 65 years and have a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Participation will involve attending the Alfred for 20 TMS treatments over a four week period. Each treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
If you would like more information or are interested in participating, please contact:
