Several VA clinics have been using the Cefay device to treat veterans with migraines. Cefaly is the first device of its kind to receive FDA-approval for the preventive treatment of migraine headaches. Since Cefaly is a device and not a drug, it’s not invasive. This means veterans don’t have to worry about taking another pill and incurring any of those possible side effects. They also don’t have to worry about Cefaly interfering with any of their other treatments as it makes a great companion to their existing care.
A story about the Salisbury VA in North Carolina using the Cefaly device is in the VA’s VAntage Point blog this month. One veteran said he’d been suffering from migraines for 20 years and Cefaly was the first thing to make a difference to him!

And here’s a link to other veterans using the Cefaly device that shared their experience with us in a nod toward Veterans’ Week: http://www.cefaly.us/blog/category/veterans back in November.
