Check out these common headache treatments

Many people go to their first resort, OTC medications but some offer short-term or little relief. Unfortunately, common headache medications do not address the root cause(s), and when used over long periods of time can cause unwanted side effects.

Acupuncture and naturopathic medicine offers a safe and effective approach to relieving migraine headache pain without causing harmful side effects. These therapies in our Migraine Program provide an individualized and comprehensive program that helps to find the underlying cause, treat it, and prevent future flares for headache treatment.

Causes of Headaches:

There are many factors that may play a key role in the root cause of a headache. These include environmental, physical ailments, medications, body constitution, emotions and stress, excessive work, improper diet, food allergies, and hormones. Headaches can also be diagnosed according to specific symptoms, times of occurrence, location, type of pain, and triggers.

A natural path to relief

At Starting Point Acupuncture, we take a holistic and integrated approach to health. In our innovative Migraine Program, we will take a detailed health history, and perform a physical exam, order any necessary testing to determine the most effective care to find any unknown triggers and develop a plan to support your body against future flares.

It is important to remember that acupuncture is not a quick fix. Changes may occur quickly or over a longer period of time, depending upon the duration you have had the issue, symptoms, and health history.

The key is finding what is causing the headaches, not just treating the symptom.
