Pulsating Electromagnetic Field in the Therapy of Headache

This study examined the effects of pulsed electromagnetic fields (20 minutes per day for 15 days) in the treatment of patients suffering from chronic headaches. Results indicated the treatment to be most effective in patients suffering from tension headaches, with 88 percent of such patients reporting positive results. Beneficial results were also experienced patients suffering from  migraines (60 percent), cervical migraines (68 percent), and psychogenic headaches (60 percent).
