Acupuncture proven to alleviate migraines

Acupuncture proven to alleviate migraines


Chronic migraine headaches sufferers may have a new source of relief. According to a comprehensive study recently published in the British Medical Journal, acupuncture (a traditional Chinese form of medicine involving the insertion of needles into the skin at strategic points) is a reliable treatment for alleviating severe and migraine headaches.

A team of researchers conducted a study in 12 different acupuncture practices. The 401 subjects ranged in age from 18 to 65 and reported experiencing migraine or tension headaches at least twice a month. They were asked to keep a headache diary for four weeks before treatment began, then for a period of three months as they received up to twelve acupuncture treatments from qualified practitioners.

The study found that the subjects receiving acupuncture treatments reported significantly less frequent and less severe headaches than participants in the control group. The test subjects reported a 34 percent decrease in headaches, as opposed to 16 percent in the control group. The acupuncture patients also took 15% less medication, took 15% fewer sick days, and made 25% fewer visits to the doctor than control group participants.

This study comes on the heels of several others which have reached similar conclusions about the potential benefits of acupuncture in treating migraine headaches.
