Fibromyalgia TENS in Physical Therapy Study (FM-TIPS)


FM TIPS logo

Despite clinical recommendations, non-pharmacological treatments are underutilized for chronic pain. Improving their use in clinical practice could provide additional tools to the patient for pain control. This real-world clinical trial tests if TENS added to physical therapy practice reduces movement-pain and fatigue, and improves adherence to physical therapy in individuals with fibromyalgia.

This study is funded by National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) at the National Institutes of Health. The CTSDMC is the Data Coordinating Center and manages the Central IRB for the study.
