Acupuncture is one of the most effective ways to treat headaches and that was recently verified by an important study.
Duke University conducted a study on headache treatment and concluded that acupuncture is more effective that prescription medication in diminishing headache pain frequency and severity. Researchers reviewed 31 studies. 62 percent of the acupuncture recipients declared headache pain relief compared to 45 percent patients taking prescription medication. They took into account that correct acupuncture technique was important in bringing positive results.
