Parkinson’s Disease: Enhancing Physical Therapy With Brain Stimulation for Treating Postural Instability.

Parkinson’s Disease: Enhancing Physical Therapy With Brain Stimulation for Treating Postural Instability.

Publication date: Jun 10, 2019

This trial aims to understand the mechanism and to test whether transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) combined with transcranial ultrasound (TUS) (tDCS+TUS) combined with physical therapy (PT) will induce significant therapeutic effects in postural instability in Parkinson’s disease (PT) patients. The investigators designed a double-blinded, placebo controlled, randomized study to investigate the effects of 2 weeks of TDCS+TUS on postural instability in PD patients receiving PT.
