Headband delivers electric migraine therapy

Jay Silverheels portrayed Tonto in TV’s “The Lone Ranger” wearing a simple headband across his forehead. Johnny Depp amped up the character’s costume and topped off his movie-version headband with a dead crow. Critics said the affectation pained them greatly. But the latest headband to hit the U.S. market – it’s been available in Canada and Europe for some time – may bring much-needed pain relief to the more than 30 million folks who contend with migraine headaches.
