A very prolific inventor is trying to solve the 600 Billion dollar problem; namely chronic pain. This article is a fascinating read.
Magnetism and the human body have always interested the curious. Electricity and magnetism are certainly areas where we do not have all the answers. This inventor is trying to use a magnetic pulse to short circuit the pain pathways. He has already succeeded for migraines. In 2000, the three inventors filed an application for a patent. It detailed a portable device that presses against the skull and shoots magnetic energy into the brain, expunging a migraine before it starts. One study published in Neurology called such technology a “major step forward” in chronic migraine treatment.
Imagine if he could succeed on back pain? Perhaps I would be out of job.
