Participants sought: Can fibromyalgia be reduced by brain stimulation?

The Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre (MAPrc) at the Alfred Hospital is currently seeking volunteers for a clinical trial of a non-medication investigational treatment for fibromyalgia.

Theta Burst Stimulation (TBS) 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 of fibromyalgia.

To be involved, participants must be aged between 18 and 75 years and have a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Participation will involve attending the Alfred for an initial 2 week period of daily (Monday-Friday) treatments followed by a 2 week period of 3 treatments per week. Each treatment appointment takes approximately 30 minutes.
