Acupuncture Helpful for Headaches

separator A new study has shown that acupuncture, over time, can be an effective treatment for people who experience chronic headaches or migraines. Study participants suffered from headaches several days each week. Researchers put the participants in two groups—those who had standard treatment for their headaches, and those who had standard treatment plus 12 acupuncture treatments over a three-month period.

At the end of a year, the participants who had acupuncture treatments had 22 fewer days of headaches, used 15 percent less medication, made 25 percent fewer visits to their family doctors and took fewer sick days.
