Reducing Headache without Drugs in People with TBI

Dr. Ron Stram, a specialist in integrative medicine in Albany, N.Y., has developed a handheld device for treating migraines and nerve pain in patients who have sustained head injuries such as soldiers exposed to blast forces in Iraq or Afghanistan. The device emits changing frequencies of electric current through the skin and teaches the nerves to handle many different kinds of stimulation. This has the effect of reducing the hypersensitivity of the nerves along with the frequency of migraines or nerve pain.
