Can a smartphone app cure your headaches?

IMG 2468

Headaches and migraines can be incredibly debilitating. Many treatments are ineffective and have side effects. What if there was a way for you to manage your migraine pain with an app on your phone?  Thanks to a new device, you can.

The FDA recently approved a wearable device that connects to your smartphone for acute migraine treatment. The device is called the Nerivio Migra, and it is produced by Theranica Bio-Electorinics. The device is placed on the upper arm and works by sending out pulses to create a conditioned pain modulation response. Clinical studies of the device show that it is 66.7% effective at providing pain relief within 2 hours. New technological innovations continue to provide more practical and effective methods of pain management.

Our clinic offers novel approaches with cutting-edge technologies to provide you with the most advanced pain management treatments available. We have reached out to Theranica and hope to have a trial of the Nerivio Migra device available in our clinic soon. In the meantime, contact Elihu Institute for Pain Management in Culver City and Beverly Hills today to find out more about our other migraine treatments, including nerve blocks, botox injections, and facet joint injections.
