Physicians and medical researchers have experimented with neurostimulation for centuries. In fact, Scribonius Largus, physician to Roman Emperor Claudius, first used currents from torpedo fish (a type of electric stingray) to treat headaches back in 46 A.D.
For migraine sufferers who are tired of living with chronic migraine pain and don’t like the side effects often caused by prescription pain medications, a welcome alternative might be a migraine procedure such as neurostimulation to treat migraine pain. Neurostimulation involves using light electrical currents to activate or modulate neurons in the body.
Neurostimulation has been successfully used to treat a variety of medical conditions including spinal injuries, back pain, and epilepsy. Now it is being applied in a migraine procedure that provides long-term relief from chronic migraine pain. The procedure has been featured in Cephalalgia, the journal of the International Headache Society.
Below are some examples of the numerous research studies that have been conducted on the use of neurostimulation to treat headaches. If you are looking to stay in touch with the latest research on migraines in general, please take a look at our blog.
