Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 22, 2012
On May 23, Migraine Treatment Centers of America will provide a free educational webinar to chronic migraine sufferers. The one-hour online presentation will detail the science behind a procedure designed to relieve the pain of chronic migraines, and a typical patient experience.
“This procedure has provided a much-needed solution for chronic migraine sufferers who have not found relief through medication, nerve blocks and other treatment,” says Brian Flanagan, M.D., an independent pain management specialist in Dallas, TX.
The webinar will focus on the Omega™ procedure, which uses neurostimulation to prevent pain signals from reaching the brain. Specialists have used neurostimulation for more than 40 years to manage pain.
During the Omega procedure, the physician inserts four thin wires under the skin which stimulate the nerves, reducing or eliminating the sensation of pain. The wires are powered by an implanted battery that is designed to be recharged wirelessly and to last up to ten years. Research has shown that the approach, applying neurostimulation to both the occipital and trigeminal nerve systems, has resulted in a high success rate in managing chronic intractable head pain for qualified patients.
Webinar attendees will have the opportunity to ask a migraine specialist questions about the Omega procedure through live chat held during the webinar.
