Soon, headache to become history

Washington, Oct. 14 (ANI): Researchers have claimed that a device implanted in patients' heads has shown promising results towards curing headaches.

About two years ago, doctors implanted a device on a patient's skull under the skin, CBS News reported.

Now, whenever the patient feels a headache's symptoms, she activates a trigger using a magnet on a small control box implanted in her lower back.

This activity sends an electric pulse along wires to a specific nerve in her brain.

According to researchers, the electric stimulation of the nerve cut average headache intensity by more than 70 percent. (ANI)
