Common Essential Tremor Treatment Options

Though essential tremor is not completely curable, there are ways to treat symptoms. Here are four treatment options available to those looking for relief.


Both invasive and noninvasive treatments are available to those suffering with essential tremor. There is no medication designed specifically for essential tremor, and those that are available to treat symptoms can come with nasty side effects. Deep brain stimulation involves implanting electrodes into the brain to regulate brain activity, while the Neuravive and Gamma Knife procedures are nonsurgical procedures. The Neuravive procedure is the only noninvasive procedure that offers immediate relief.
