Health.com: 13 Surprising Ways to Fight Headache Pain

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Delivering magnetic pulses to the brain may become a useful therapy for zapping migraines, research suggests. A recent study found that when patients treated a migraine with transcranial magnetic stimulation, they got better relief than those who treated their pain with a placebo device.

This noninvasive treatment takes one or two hours and is conducted in a clinic by placing an electromagnetic coil near the head to deliver the pulses.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation, however, is still considered an experimental therapy for treating migraines.
