Acupuncture Better Than Aspirin for a Headache!

Two new systematic reviews have found that acupuncture therapy can provide patients who suffer from tension and migraine headache an alternative treatment for their pain. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/136103.php

Acupuncture may provide lasting relief from the pain of chronic headaches, such as migraines, according to a new study.  Researchers found that compared with standard medical care, acupuncture offers substantial benefits in preventing headaches and improving the quality of life for people who suffer from frequent headaches, especially migraines.  Acupuncture is commonly used to treat other types of chronic pain, but researchers say this is the first large-scale study to examine the effectiveness of acupuncture under real-life conditions. They say the results indicate that health insurance coverage of acupuncture services should be expanded to include the treatment of chronic headaches and migraine.  http://www.webmd.com/migraines-headaches/news/20040315/acupuncture-migraine-headache-pain
