"Noninvasive neuromodulation in migraine and cluster headache"

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, I can't access the full article, where the interesting stuff would be.  So, FYI.  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29601305

EDIT: Here's a link to the full text, thanks to another member.  https://clusterbusters.org/forums/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=1877


The purpose of this narrative review is to provide an overview of the currently available noninvasive neuromodulation devices for the treatment of migraine and cluster headache.


Over the last decade, several noninvasive devices have undergone development and clinical trials to evaluate efficacy and safety. Based on this body of work, single-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation, transcutaneous supraorbital neurostimulation, and noninvasive vagal nerve stimulation devices have been cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration and are available for clinical use for the treatment of primary headache disorders.


Overall, these novel noninvasive devices appear to be safe, well tolerated, and have demonstrated promising results in clinical trials in both migraine and cluster headache. This narrative review will provide a summary and update of the proposed mechanisms of action, evidence, safety, and future directions of various currently available modalities of noninvasive neuromodulation for the treatment of migraine and cluster headache.
