About Migraine and Headache
According to the National Headache Foundation, over 45 million Americans suffer from chronic headaches, and 28 million suffer from migraines and sinus headaches.
Several clinical studies have shown that acupuncture is a highly effective option for treating chronic headaches. This is because acupuncture not only concentrates on the pain itself, but it also targets the original cause of the pain. And herbal medication helps to treat the fundamental cause as well.
A recurring headache is called tension headaches, and is also known as stress headaches. It emerges when patients are under constant stress or pressure and it appears in the occipital region (the back head area) and where the trapezius muscle fascia is connected to the occipital protrusion of the skull.
Tension headaches are due to excessive tension build up in the cervical region and tightness of the neck and shoulders. By relieving these pressures and stiffness, tension headaches can easily be eliminated.
