Neuromodulation has evolved beyond existing as a ''one-size-fits-all'' therapy. Innovation is now aimed at creating indication-specific therapies that play to the strengths of each breakthrough. This session will attempt to elucidate which therapies are better suited for certain indications based on the current evidence available.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Review evidence for each therapy and what pathologies are supported by the evidence.
- Explain the basic science of each therapy to highlight the fundamental differences between them.
- Identify the best practices for each therapy.
- Discuss the evidence and data for therapy by indications or parts of the body.
