Migraines have affected humans for centuries. Most people don’t realize how serious and incapacitating a migraine can be. In fact, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), migraines are the 6th most disabling illness in the world. And this is nothing new. From Julius Caesar, to Vincent Van Gogh, to Janet Jackson and to you- headache disorders have always been common. Migraines are the most prevalent, the most disabling, and the most treatable of all neurologic conditions. If you are one of the 36 million Americans, or about 12% of the population, suffering from migraines-then you know the indescribable suffering.
Migraine medical device, SILENCIO, is a non-pharmalogical approach to reduce migraine days and to reduce the amount of medication used for migraine relief. Silencio therapy is the application of a specific algorithm of TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) for chronic migraine minimization. The TENS unit has four adhesive cloth electrodes. Two of the electrodes are applied to the supraorbital region (just above the eye). The remaining two are placed in the occipital nerve region at the back of the neck. And that–is what makes SILENCIO exclusive. Stimulating both the occipital and trigeminal /supraorbital nerves provides better relief of chronic migraine than stimulating only the occipital nerve, a new study shows. Combined occipital and trigeminal nerve stimulation is an emerging form of neuromodulation that is reversible and adjustable and that can be tailored to an individual’s specific needs in an external and non-invasive manner.
The Silencio TENS unit has a custom designed stimulation algorithm that has been successfully used on thousands of migraine sufferers with respectable results in reducing the number of migraine days per month and medication consumption overall. Therapy is simple to deliver, and sends comfortable impulses through the skin that stimulate the nerves in the treatment area.
With Silencio, the only thing you have to lose is your headache.
Stick around for more advanced posts on the yardsticks used to measure if Silencio works; as well as, the benefits, the results and the scientific theories that provide evidence supporting External Trigeminal and Occipital Nerve Stimulation for Migraine Headache Relief.
