If you get frequent migraines, then you know what a huge pain they can be. But before you pop another pill, here’s an alternative treatment that’s worth considering: the Cefaly headband.
Made from plastic and powered by batteries, this simple-looking headband sends small and steady electrical pulses into the wearer’s trigeminal nerve, which is the largest of the cranial nerves. 71% respondents of a study claimed that the headband reduced the number of headaches they got after using it.
While the device was only recently approved by the FDA, it has been used in Europe and Canada for quiet a while now. Headache sufferers can find more information on the Cefaly headband here.
