Title: Nerve Stimulator?
Post by: Janet on March 08, 2008, 01:46:59 pm
I thought I would pass this on in case it may be of help to someone. When I was at the pain clinic for an occipital block ,the doctor said that sometimes headaches can originate from the facet joint. They were conducting a study (sponsered by the product manufacturer) of the effectiivness of nerve stimulators. All costs are paid. Frequently, studies are done in centers around the country to get a good sampling. This might be worth looking into.  I know they use nerve stimulators for back pain treatment.
