Neuromodulation as a Treatment for Migraine
The International Neuromodulation Society describes neuromodulation as… “technology that acts directly upon nerves. It is the alteration—or modulation—of nerve activity by delivering electrical or pharmaceutical agents directly to a target area”
There are several methods of neuromodulation or stimulation used in the treatment of migraine. They each target a different area and are used in different ways and they are mostly non-invasive. Please click on a link below to find out more about these neuromodulation treatments for migraine.
