According to its objectives, FHU INOVPAIN organized a special workshop on  18/10/2018. FHU team received colleagues from Lille, Marseille and Paris in order to train them to occipital nerve stimulation (ONS).

This technique consists to apply a continuous electrical stimulation to the great and/or lesser occipital nerve through a subcutaneous chronically implanted electrode close to the nerve and connected to a generator. ONS induces paresthesia in the occipital region and has been proposed initially to control occipital neuralgia and then to treat primary headaches.
