Acupuncture releases tension headache and migraine effectively research update

Tension-type headache is the most common type of headache which may occur frequently and affect a patient’s quality of life. Migraine is severe episodic type of headache. Systematic reviews and meta-analyses demonstrate that acupuncture significantly improved pain intensity and reduced headache attack frequency compared to routine care only, medical management, and sham acupuncture. It plays a key role in the treatment or prevention of tension-type headache, migraine or other chronic headache disorders. Also cost effectiveness analyses conducted in the United Kingdom and Germany suggest that acupuncture is a cost-effective treatment option in those countries. Acupuncture is recommended by the European Federation of Neurological Societies as a complimentary optional treatment for headaches.
