I've just spent hours going from one place to another to no avail. Any help would be great. Thanks so much.
I am back. Just finished a post but took so long to write it, it was not
accepted and had to log in again.
First off all James gave you excellant advice and he is correct, There are
more than one protocal. I don't know what part of the body your CRPS
is located but I first became familiar with the Beth Isreal study on CRPS
the RSDSA web site. I became farmiliar with the names of the docs involved
in that study.
I got lucky. I wish I could provide you with a step by step procedure but
I don't know what key words I typed. I went through Google first not
pub med. Dont despair before posting I played around with some key words
and came up with the screen and can share from there. Go to goggle,type
in Non-invasive transcrainial direct current stimulation for neuropathich pain .
This will bring you to a screen. Look at one of the titles which has the names Knotvova H. and Cruciani RA. Click that and this will take you
to pub med. That Pub Med abstract will say. " Non-invasive transcraincal
direct current stimulation for the study and treatment of neuropathic pain"
You don't want just the abstract on that screen see other souces and you
will see springerlink. You don't want springer.com unless you are assoicated
with a facilty which has access. I registered so I could get a copy of the
full article. It cost 39.00 dollars.
This has some portocals mentioned but please understand this is not all your
homework, helpful yes but not all. Both Voner and Catra also posted a
web site which is not the TDCS thread that has another site, with some
protocals out of Harvard I think.
Hope this helps
