Treatment and prevention of migraines

TNS is used for treatment of migraine headache with or without aura or prevention in those who get more than 3 attacks in a month. Acute treatment lasts 1 hour session and nearly 8 out of 10 patients are relieved of symptoms. 1 in 3 patients is totally relieved of pain.

TNS is exceptionally safe and free from side effects compared to current anti-migraine oral medication. It is the first line treatment for patients having frequent migraine attacks. TNS enables the use of medicines to be significantly reduced. Side effects if any are mild, self limiting and do not require any attention. The electro magnetic field created is a miniscule of that from a hair dryer. (1 in 5000 times less)
