Migraine Treatment Using X-Ray Guidance May Hold Potential for Relief

However, neurologists have expressed skepticism over the technique used in the findings. “That’s not to say that this procedure isn’t good and doesn’t work, but you can’t make any grand claims based on a study that’s open-label and has a mix of patients,” said Lawrence Newman, director of the Mount Sinai-Roosevelt Headache Institute.
