Suffering from migraines, acupuncture can help

Migraines are severe headaches. Migraines present episode attacks. When migraines attack, it can last hours or days. Migraines are recurring and can come and go for years. They appear on one side of the head. There could be other symptoms and warning signs associated such as sensory disturbances: seeing flash light etc. They tend to affect more for people aged 15 to 55 years. Migraines are special type of headaches: Some people who experience migraines can clearly identify triggers or factors that cause the headaches, such as allergies, light, and stress; some people get a warning symptom before the migraine attack and can take action to prevent the attack by recognizing the warning signs. The cause of migraines is not known. Many things can trigger migraines: such as hormone changes stress, depression, anxiety, lack of sleep shoulder and neck tension, poor posture, alcohol, caffeine, dehydration, flashing light, strong smells, smoking and loud noise etc.

Research a review analyzed recent studies of acupuncture on migraines. There were 62 studies involved 4,947 participants. The treatment duration varied from 1 month to 6 months. Result has shown that Acupuncture was more effective for short-term treatment compared with no treatment. Compared with medication, manual acupuncture resulted in better efficacy or safety, especially at follow-up times of up to 3 months after treatment.
