Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS)

NOVEL APPLICATIONS TO DRIVE THE BRAIN & NERVOUS SYSTEM TO BOOST ORTHOPEDIC OUTCOMES!

Better results! Better with pain!

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. The placement of electrodes on the head that stimulate affected areas in a very simple and comfortable way for the patient with no side effects! TDCS is a neuromodulation technique that produces immediate and lasting changes in brain function due to neuroplasticity. 

Studies show very promising therapeutic effects in the treatment of:

  • chronic (musculoskeletal) pain
  • neuromotor disorders
  • fibromyalgia
  • migraine headache
  • sleep disorder
  • Brain damage
  • Depression

This innovative low direct current technique allows the combination with different techniques such as the therapeutic exercise, manual therapy or PNT (see website) so the professional can boost the effects of such therapies.

Evidence is proven by more than 6000 studies all over the world and now for the first time in the Netherlands!

The course will be presented by neurologist Dr Vanessa Pytel Cordoba. She is currently author or co-author of 30 articles in scientific journals, 2 book chapters, presented in more than 50 communications to national and international congresses.

 

This course is  developed for: (sport) fysiotherapeuten, manueel therapeuten

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.

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. The current applied has an INHIBITORY OR EXCITATORY EFFECT on the cortical activity of the brain depending on its intensity, duration and/or polarity. 

In this sense, a MODIFICATION OF MEMBRANE POTENTIAL is produced, which stimulates or inhibits the transmission of information. In this way, neuronal levels of excitability and activity can be specifically modified. 

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 application

 

Program tDCS:

9.00-11.30:        Introduction of the course. Basic concepts of the technique

11.30-12.15:      tDCS mechanism of action, application, contraindications, safety. The human brain,
                          basic knowledge for TDCS application.

12.15-13.15:      Break

13.15-17.00:      tDCS application protocols. Clinical cases. Practical workshop

17.00-17.30:      Summary and Q&A

Recommendations to stay during the course:

 

  • BED & BREAKFAST HET HOF VAN LAREN 

Less than 300 meters from our office we have a nice Bed&Breakfast called: Het Hof van Laren.
For more information go to: www.hethofvanlaren.nl 
 
 
  • HOTEL DE WITTE BERGEN IN EEMNES

Hotel de Witte Bergen in Eemnes is for some courses HumanMotion does in the Netherlands; it is 5 minutes away (by car) from our office.
www.hoteldewittebergen.nl

Amsterdam, is only 35 kilometres from the hotel. Amersfoort and Utrecht are only 20 kilometres away. The airport is 48 kilometers from the hotel.


HOW TO TRAVEL:

From the Airport / Amsterdam city center.
We advise to travel by train from Schiphol airport to Hilversum and get a taxi from the trainstation Hilversum to Klaaskampen 19C. Total cost would be around: (1 way) € 10,00 for the train from Schiphol to Hilversum and approximately € 22,50 for the taxi from train station Hilversum to our location (all prices are estimated prices)

the phone number to make a taxi reservation is: +31 35 531 8080 (taxi Eemnes) Mostly there are also taxi’s on the station as well you can ask them for their rates.

You can by your train ticket at the train stations

I have a degree in Medicine and Surgery, awarded by the University of Buenos Aires in 2009, approved by the Ministry of Education, Culture, and Sports of Spain in 2012.

Specialist in Neurology, I did my medical residency in Neurology at the Italian Hospital of Buenos Aires, Argentina, between 2010 and 2014.

I completed my Ph.D. in Medical-Surgical Sciences at the Complutense University of Madrid, between 2015 and 2019 (Thesis: "PET amyloid in Multiple Sclerosis" qualified with an outstanding Cum-laude).

Between 2014 and 2015 I completed the Master's Degree in Neuroscience at the Complutense University of Madrid.

I am a university expert in statistics applied to health sciences by the National University of Distance Education (UNED, 2016-2017).

I obtained a certification in the Cognitive-Behavioral Pathology and Dementia technique by the Spanish Society of Neurology in 2019.

In 2019 I completed the "Intensive Course in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)" at Harvard Medical School. Accredited with 32.00 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM, 2019. I also participated in the Workshop organized by the "London Neuroscience Academy" and ANT Neuro. Accredited with 10 CPD credits from the Royal Society of Medicine. In 2021 I participated in the Brainbox initiative workshop: fundamentals and applications of tES.

I am currently author or co-author of 30 articles in scientific journals, 2 book chapters, presented more than 50 communications to national and international congresses.

I serve as an external reviewer for the journals BMC Neurology, Acta Neurologica Scandinavica, PeerJ - The Journal of Life and Environmental Sciences, Neurology, Frontiers Human Neuroscience, Journal of Medical Virology, and Frontiers in Neurology. 

I am currently contracted as a researcher at the Foundation for Biomedical Research of the Hospital Clínico San Carlos since 2016.

Since 2016 within my responsibilities I perform a minimum of 10 hours per week of general neurology and dementia consultations, and I have training in the use, application, and interpretation of various neuroimaging, neurophysiological and neurobiological techniques used for the assessment of neurological patients.

I have extensive experience in cognitive assessment of patients with neurological diseases using different neuropsychological instruments, structural and functional neuroimaging analysis, and in the use of direct electrical stimulation and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation using neuronavigation. 

I also have an extensive teaching experience, having taught theoretical courses and practical workshops on non-invasive neuromodulation techniques to health professionals (doctors, physiotherapists, psychologists, speech therapists).
