GammaCoreTM is a non-invasive vagus nerve stimulator, otherwise known as nVNS, that activates the vagus nerve with gentle electrical stimulation through the skin of the neck. The vagus nerve is the longest cranial nerve in the body, with branching nerves that go to the heart, lungs, stomach, and many other organs. It is for reporting information to the brain and transmitting instructions back to the body.
Think of the vagus nerve as the nervous systems “super-highway”, sending important communication back and forth between your brain and parts of the body. The vagus nerve modulates systemic inflammation having an effect on the autonomic, enteric (Gut-Brain Axis) and peripheral nervous systems. Because of this broad influence it is useful to treat in many conditions including central pain, headache disorders, inflammatory conditions, gastrointestinal disorders and less defined conditions such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Long-Covid
