Juan Miguel GarcĄa Leiva -a researcher at the University of Granada Institute for Neuroscience "Federico Oloriz" - specified that this treatment "is not a first-choice treatment for migraine sufferers, but it can only be applied in patients with chronic migraine who have tried several treatments with poor results, and who show peripheral sensitization of muscles.
