TRANSCRANIAL DIRECT CURRENT STIMULATION DOES NOT ENHANCE DUAL-TASK GAIT TRAINING IN PARKINSON’S DISEASE
Presenter: Schabrun SM
This Module addresses:
Question: Does the addition of transcranial direct current stimulation
(tDCS) improve gait and motor function beyond that of dual task gait
training alone in Parkinson’s disease (PD)?
Conclusion: tDCS may not be an effective adjunct to dual task gait training
Key Practice Points:
• Three weeks of dual task gait training is effective at improving gait while
concurrent tasks are performed in individuals with PD.
• Improvements are maintained at 12 weeks follow-up.
• The addition of tDCS did not result in greater improvements than
