New non-invasive migraine stimulation band therapy available!
A Belgium company, STX-Med, has received FDA approval to market their non-invasive headband as a migraine therapy. This headband, called Cefaly, delivers transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) to the frontal branches of the trigeminal nerve known to be involved in pathophysiology of migraine headaches. The device is worn for up to 20 minutes per day and is indicated for migraine sufferers 18 years of age or older. As with other TENS devices, there might be a tingling sensation and a muscle may even contract on its own in the head. It is well known that pain inputs can modulate the migraine experience, and this technology is the first to take advantage of it without surgery.
