Electrode System Cures Migraines

An experimental treatment for sufferers of migraine headaches seems to be successful, though doctors don't know why. A device is implanted in the patient's lower back and electrodes run up to the base of the skull. When s/he feels a headache coming on, the patient clicks a remote control and the device sends electrical impulses into the nerves of his/her head, which appears to stop the pain.

While still under study, doctors at the North Shore Medical Center say their studies show the treatment appears to be working.
