How many times have you heard someone say "I've got a headache"? It is one of the most common ailments in society today and should not be taken lightly. It may well be the symptom of an underlying imbalance or deeper problem.
In today's frantic society a common suggestion is pop a pill and the problem will be solved. However this doesn't treat the root of the problem. As analgesics become more popular prolonged use can result in more problematic long term effects.
Headaches may be the result of emotional problems, occupational hazards, dietary anomalies, hormonal imbalances, trauma, blood pressure, sinus and the list goes on.
Getting right to the point
When you describe your headache to your acupuncturist, after further questioning, he will form a diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan. Each individual type of headache will be treated differently to some degree.
Acupuncture is effective for most headaches including migraines, cluster, hormonal, stress, muscle tension, traumatic. Acupuncture can work in a curative and preventative manner. Your treatment can begin without you even having a headache- after all prevention is better than cure.
