How Does Ear Insufflation Work?

Drugs such as triptans account for more than 90% of prescribed migraine therapy, however patients are often dissatisfied due to their low effectiveness and the often strong side effects such as drowsiness, nausea, skin reactions, and even worsening of the headaches and migraine. The drug-free alternative making waves in the world of headaches is Ear Insufflation Therapy. Insufflation is a therapy where small, controlled amounts of air are blown into the ear canal with a device called a pneumatic otoscope. This air stimulates unique pressure-activated nerve receptors found in our ears. Researchers hypothesize these receptors target and reset pain centers in the brain, giving relief from migraines.

Initial studies on ear insufflation therapy are very promising. In one study, 67% of participants reported complete pain resolution within a 2-hour post-treatment period.
