The medical journal Sao Paulo Medical Journal Evidence for Health Care, published a fantastic study about the effectiveness of acupuncture in preventing migraines.
The authors of the study reviewed twenty-two published research papers investigating the use of acupuncture in preventing migraines. All of the studies were randomized trials and followed the subjects after treatment. Altogether the research measured the outcome of 4419 participants!
The conclusions are amazing! The authors state,
"Available studies suggest that acupuncture is at least as effective as, or possibly more effective than, prophylactic drug treatment, and has fewer adverse effects"
"...there is consistent evidence that acupuncture provides additional benefit to treatment of acute migraine attacks"
"...Acupuncture should be considered a treatment option for [willing] patients..."
It is wonderful to see such overwhelming numbers published!
