Acupuncture 'Beats Headache Pain'

Experts say acupuncture is an effective treatment for chronic headaches and should be more widely available after UK researchers found that patients who were given acupuncture had fewer days of headaches than those who were not. They also saw their doctor less often and were not as reliant on painkillers. Patients receiving acupuncture experienced 22 fewer days of headache per year, used 15 percent less medication, made 25 percent fewer visits to their doctor and were absent from work through sickness 15 percent less than the control group. Researchers also recently discovered how acupuncture helps with pain relief, as I posted in a previous blog entry.
