Acupuncture for the treatment of headaches:

Suffer from headaches?

Most people report daily headaches that often lead to missed work, poor sleep, and low energy.

It is time to get relief and find the root cause for the treatment of headaches.

Understanding tension headaches

Tension headaches are just that. Headaches that are triggered by muscle tension, typically in the neck and upper back that cause tight muscles to spasm. Often these headaches are not as debilitating as migraines, but they can occur much more frequently. Stress, dehydration, and poor posture are often the biggest contributing factor.

Can acupuncture help in the treatment of headaches? Let’s see what the research says

A recent study compounding on prior research shows that acupuncture combined with herbs has proven to be more effective at treating vascular headaches than drugs. The previous research studying acupuncture as a treatment for headaches concluded that acupuncture is comparable to modern drugs for treatment of migraine headache. For this study, the researchers increased the strength of the acupuncture treatment by adding herbal medicine as an adjunct to the acupuncture. Acupuncture and herbal medicine outperformed Nimodipine, a drug prescribed for frequent headaches. If you suffer from frequent headaches and drugs just don’t seem to be providing the relief you’re looking for then consult with Dr. Heintze about a treatment that has proven to be clinically more effective than drugs.
