History

A 42-year-old female, single mother of two children, had migraine since the age of 22 when she had her first pregnancy.

During the last year before coMra-Therapy the female rarely had pain free days and generally had 1 to 2 severe migraine attacks per week with pain level 10 (on 0-10 scale). Duration of attacks 1-3 days, typically triggered by stress.

For migraine attacks the female had been taking abortive migraine medication. She was diagnosed with medication overuse headache and was on the point of being hospitalized for triptan addiction.

Treatment

980 nm Delta device

Universal 1 treatment protocol

Self-treatment twice daily for about 5 weeks. During attacks she also did one or two extra treatments.

Outcome

By the end of the 2nd week of daily coMra-Therapy the female started to notice significant improvements in her condition. During the 3rd and 4th week she still had headaches but mostly of mild to moderate severity and she did not have to resort to any pain medication. During the 4th week she was also able to resolve her financial challenges, although stress at work remained high.

She stopped treatments after the 5th week and from the 7th week onward she was pain free. She completely stopped taking abortive headache medication and there was no need any more to go to hospital for medication addiction. During the 4 months following her last treatment, she remained practically pain free.
