Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS)


tDCS is a non-invasive therapeutic neuromodulation alternative for the treatment of chronic (low back) pain, fibromyalgia, migraine headache, sleep disorder, stroke. The placement of electrodes on the head that stimulate affected areas in a very simple and comfortable way for the patient.



Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), is a non-invasive, painless brain stimulation treatment that uses direct electrical currents to stimulate specific parts of the brain. A constant, low intensity current is passed through two electrodes placed over the head which modulates neuronal activity. A fixed current between 1 and 2 mA is typically applied. tDCS works by applying a positive (anodal) or negative (cathodal) current via electrodes to an area.

tDCS is a neuromodulation technique that produces immediate and lasting changes in brain function. The position of the anode and cathode electrodes on the head is used to set how current flows to specific brain regions. The current delivered by tDCS is NOT strong enough to trigger an action potential in a neuron; instead its “sub-threshold” changes the pattern of already activity neurons.

This innovative low direct current technique allows the combination with different techniques such as the therapeutic exercise or manual therapy so the professional can boost the effects of such therapies. Evidence is proven by more than 6000 studies all over the world.

In our courses we guide you through the underlying neurofysiological principals of tDCS, the protocols and placements of the electrodes and practice and discuss the applications.
