Acupuncture for Migraines
Are You Considering Acupuncture for Migraines?Based on the results of research studies, acupuncture may serve as an effective addition to the standard treatment for migraines. It may also be as effective as medications when used alone.
It's also important to realize that acupuncture may not be effective for everyone. If you do not see an improvement in migraines after six to eight sessions, acupuncture is unlikely to help.
You should make sure to talk with your healthcare provider about migraines and acupuncture before you begin using this treatment option. Also, if you decide to use acupuncture, it is important to find a licensed and certified practitioner. This is important because complications of acupuncture have usually been due to inadequate practitioner training and experience.
