CE approval of Sooma tDCS: Fibromyalgia and chronic neuropathic pain

Treatment of Fibromyalgia with Sooma Pain Therapy

In this newsletter, we’d like to talk about how the Sooma treatment can be beneficial for fibromyalgia patients. Fibromyalgia is a type of chronic primary pain and there is sufficient clinical evidence that treatments such as the Sooma one have a positive effect on such condition.

What is Fibromyalgia?

It’s widespread pain that affects both sides of the body, above and below the waist as well as the axial skeletal system. The pain lasts for at least three months. In this condition, patients have 18 specifiс tender points as shown in the diagram:

What value Sooma Pain therapy adds to the clinical routine? 

Sooma Pain Therapy is a new tool that can be used alone or at the same time with other treatments, if there’s need to enhance their effect. The Sooma treatment’s side effect profile is different from common medications and may be tolerated by patients who have difficulties tolerating the medication. There is also no risk of developing an addiction.

Finally, Sooma Pain Therapy is easy to use. The setup takes two minutes, after which the patient can sit back and relax for 20 minutes. After the session, the patient may carry on with their regular activities right away.
