Prevention by needle: supplanting Headaches

Patients who suffer regularly from headaches, can expect an improvement in their symptoms from acupuncture sessions. The usefulness of this method has now been proven in a important clinical study: the treatment with needles was so effective that the patients suffered headaches less frequently, needed less medication and were less often unfit for work. For the study, 401 patients with chronic headaches, in particular migraine, were chosen at random for either a conventional therapy or one with additional acupuncture therapy (maximum twelve sessions in three months).
