A Electronic Aspirin That Treats Headaches

     A technology that can help a lot of people that are struggling with migraines, cluster headaches, and other types of symptoms that causes chronic, one the most acute head or facial pain, there is always this method that the doctor always use on his or her patients when the have a headache. And that is “take two aspirin and call in the morning” thing and it just does not cut it anymore for most people. For decades, Doctors have associated the long and severe, chronic forms of headaches with the (SPG), which is known for the Sphenopalatine ganglion. A facial nerve bundle, yet haven’t found a treatment that works on the Sphenopalatine ganglion in long-term. A technology that is under clinical investigation at a company called Autonomic Technologies, Inc., which is stationed in Redwood City, California is a patient-powered tool for blocking SPG signals at the first sign of a person’s headache. This system incorporates a permanent implant that of a small nerve to stimulate the device in the upper gum on the side of the head that is normally affected by headache. The tip of the implant connects to the SPG bundle, and when some patients senses the inception of a headache, he or she places a handheld remote controller on the cheek nearest to the implant. Then the resulting signals stimulate the SPG nerves and then blocks the pain-causing neurotransmitters.
