Washington: Researchers have claimed that a device implanted in patients' heads has shown promising results towards curing headaches.

About two years ago, doctors implanted a device on a patient's skull under the skin.

Now, whenever the patient feels a headache's symptoms, she activates a trigger using a magnet on a small control box implanted in her lower back.

This activity sends an electric pulse along wires to a specific nerve in her brain.

According to researchers, the electric stimulation of the nerve cut average headache intensity by more than 70 percent.
