New FDA approved transcranial stimulator (TMS) is now available to treat migraine headache. Approximately 18% of women and 8% of men suffer from chronic migraine headaches which can be debilitating and cause loss of time at school or work. This new device can be held up to the back of the head and delivers a pulse of electromagnetic energy resulting in relief of migraine pain within 2 hours and lasting for more than 24 hours. The device may not be effective for other migraine symptoms such as nausea and sensitivity to light or noise. Additionally the electromagnetic pulse can cause dizziness.
The device is not for patients with metals in the head, neck, or upper body or are using devices such as a pacemaker, deep brain stimulator or other implanted nerve stimulator. Additionally this device should be avoided in patients that have seizures or history of seizures.
The device can be prescribed for selected patients and is covered by insurance. More information available at www.eneura.com/
