In a brand new study published in March 2013 a team of clinicians have demonstrated, through a controlled study, that acupuncture is able to outperform the drug valproic acid, in reducing the intensity of the pain associated with migraine headaches.
The study is published in the Journal of Chinese Medicine and outlines how, over six months, acupuncture was able to outperform the drug. Over a three month timescale the difference between the two protocols was minimal but over a longer period acupuncture came out as a clear winner.
Acupuncture has been widely recognised as an aid for headaches and migraines and the British Acupuncture Council shows strong supporting evidence for using acupuncture to treat both headaches and migraines.
