Migraines are a very debilitating condition. Not only are they painful, they also can cause nausea and vomiting, sensitivity to light and noise, weird visual auras and sensations, problems concentrating and missing many days off work and school. For some it can be a problem for over 20 to 30 years and impacts all aspects of life and severely impacting on ones social, family and work life.
Harvard Medical School has announced that a 2012 medical study involving approximately 18,000 individual patients over 23 high-quality randomized controlled trials of acupuncture showed that acupuncture is beneficial for headache, along with low back pain and osteoarthritis.
Additionally, the safety profile of acupuncture is excellent, without drugs, without side effects. Other potential benefits include lowering blood pressure to long-lasting improvements in brain function. Acupuncture has emerged as an important non-drug option that can help chronic pain patients avoid the use of potentially harmful medications, especially opiates with their serious risk of substance use disorder.
We are absolutely delighted for our patients who are happy to tell us that they are "regaining life back" and can return to work for full days and completely enjoy their free time.
