Electrical Stimulation Of The Brain (ESB)

Electrical stimulation of the brain (ESB) or deep brain stimulation is a treatment for Parkinson’s disease-related pain and tremors. This new technique is done by administering electricity in the brain through an implanted electrode. The risks include headache, disequilibrium, burning or tingling sensation, and partial paralysis. Hence, this is only recommended for those who are suffering from tremors which significantly impair their functioning.
