Zapping away migraines!

Suffer from migraine headaches? Give this a try! The Occipital Nerve Stimulator, think of it as a nerve pacemaker. Surgeons place two electrodes at the base of the skull, near the occipital nerve, and the wires are placed on either side of the skull.
Those wires are attached to a pacemaker just under the skin in the patients chest. Then a remote controlled device is used that can increase or decrease the amount of electrical impulses being sent to the nerves of the brain. The more pain, the higher the electrical impulses.
