Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine for Headaches
Headache pain can severely impact a person’s quality of life. There are many medical issues that can cause headaches, and each medical condition should be ruled out.
In some chronic cases of headache pain, an MRI may be needed to rule out brain cancer and other serious diseases. Once all serious medical conditions have been ruled out, then you can seek out a competent acupuncturist who has experience treating pain.
Stress is one of the most common causes of headache pain, and acupuncture is incredibly effective at relieving stress from the central nervous system. Acupuncture also releases endorphins that act like opiod analgesics without the side-effects or addiction issues.
Also, in my clinical experience, many people with chronically tight shoulder and neck pain that causes headaches, are deficient in the mineral magnesium. The most absorbable form of magnesium is magnesium citrate, and it can help with headache pain and eliminate them entirely in some cases.
