There’s an App for That

We are all so connected these days. Migraine specialists at NYU have taken advantage of that fact to develop an app for smartphones to help patients suffering from migraines. The app is called RELAXahead and it uses behavioral and relaxation techniques to help patients manage their headaches. The study of migraine patients using the app found that after 2 months of use, those who used it 2 days per weeks had 4 fewer headache days per month. The app is especially helpful for patient’s to manage their headaches who have fewer choices of pharmacologic therapy such as pregnant and nursing mothers.

You can download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play App Store.
