Migraines, Tension Headaches Respond To Acupuncture.


Two new systematic reviews have found that acupuncture therapy can provide patients an alternative treatment for their pain.

Tension headaches are the most common headache, and cause mild to moderate pain. As they are so frequent, they usually require treatment. Migraine headaches, in contrast, can be disabling and severe. Accompanying symptoms can include nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light.

Reviews appear in the current issue of The Cochrane Library, a publication of The Cochrane Collaboration, an international organization that evaluates research in all aspects of health care. Systematic reviews draw evidence-based conclusions about medical practice after considering both the content and quality of existing trials on a topic.

Klaus Linde, lead reviewer of the Center for Complementary Medicine Research at the Technical University of Munich said the therapy is popular in Germany. “Acupuncture is frequently used for headache,” he said. It has also gained popularity in the United States. A 2002 National Health Interview Survey of complementary and alternative medicine use found that about 8.2 million U.S. adults had ever used acupuncture in their lives, and an estimated 2.1 million had used acupuncture the previous year.

The director of the University of Maryland Center for Integrative Medicine in Baltimore, Brian Berman, M.D said that acupuncture is definitely becoming a more popular treatment option for Americans. “There is more evidence coming out showing acupuncture is safe and often effectiveand should be considered as part of a multidisciplinary approach for chronic pain,” he said.
