Acupuncture for Migraine / Headaches
It is widely recognised that there are 3 main types of headache: Migraine, Tension Type Headaches and Cluster Headaches (including Trigeminal Neuralgia).
Over recent years the medical research and evidence to support the use of acupuncture to treat these conditions has grown exponentially. Some studies have even proven acupuncture to be more effective than conventional drug therapy to reduce the frequency and intensity of the headache/migraine, with acupuncture helping to treat the cause.
Our specially trained physiotherapists treating a migraine or headache sufferer would first assess the symptoms to diagnose the type of headache/migraine, before prescribing and delivering a course of treatment sessions (depending on severity and length of time a sufferer has had the symptoms).
