Nerve Stimulation Most Likely To Provide Relief from Migraine

Nerve Stimulation Most Likely To Provide Relief from Migraine

A recent research has suggested a nerve stimulator for migraine patients. However, it would show its effect on those patients who suffer from regular headaches.

It has been found by researchers led by Dr. Jean Schoenen, from Liege University, that those who have used the stimulation devices for a brief period every single day for some three months experienced lesser headaches.

For the research, 67 migraine sufferers were roped in and they were made to get treated with the electrical nerve stimulator or an identical sham stimulator. It was done for 20 minutes every day for three months.

It must be remembered that there is no universally effective therapy for migraine, and perhaps that's what makes it all the more imperative to come out with extensive researches involving treatment options, as per Dr. Joel Saper, from the Michigan Head-Pain and Neurological Institute in Ann Arbor.

As far as the device is concerned, it has been made by STX-Med. As part of the trial, which was done in Belgium, it amounts to some 300 Euros - or just over $400. In the name of Cefaly, the device has been donated by the company and is yet to get an approval from the U. S. Food and Drug Administration.
