Cefaly Image

 

This device, applied to the forehead for 20 min per day for 3 months, reduced headache by 50%!!!  An article published in the February 19,2013 issue of  Neurology presents the study.  The device, named Cefaly, is currently available through several internet sites (Amazon & others)   It is an exciting treatment addition for the prevention of migraines.  Cefaly is easily to use and without side effects.  Hopefully, insurers will provide coverage for this therapy.  Although, Health Savings Accounts are currently the best coverage option.

Our Northshore clinic has already recommended Cefaly for patients.  This therapy is already incorporated into my treatment plans!!!  Below is the article link:
