Neuroplastic Changes and Effect of Anodal Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation in Non-Specific Chronic Low Back Pain
Abstract: Neuroplasticity in chronic low back pain occurs as a result of cortical changes due to the chronicity of the condition. Functional imagine studies revealed three basic neuroplastic changes in chronic low back pain which are of clincal important. Transcranial direct current stimulation and Transcranial magnetic stimulation are the two important non invasive method of brain stimulation that are used in chronic pain syndrome, with the former being cheaper, safe and easy to blind. This article will review neuroplastic changes in chronic in chronic low back pain as well as the effectiveness of anodal transcranial direct current stimulation in non-specific chronic low back pain.
