Scientists Find A New Method To Block Pain.

In a new study from King’s College London and elsewhere, researchers found that low levels of electrical current can be used to inhibit pain signals in nerves from ever reaching the brain.

Previous studies have shown that electrical neuromodulation (the alteration of pain perception through targeted delivery of electrical impulses) can be used as an alternative to medication and more specifically opioids.

The novel treatment in the study instead directly inhibits pain signals before they can be relayed to the brain.
