Even, this circumstance can lead people into depression. Stress and depression included into our lives are important factors that starts migraine attacks.

Migraine and Headache Treatment with Acupuncture

Headaches can be symptoms of acute or chronic diseases. If it is a symptom of any disease (brain tumor, tonsillitis, palatine tonsil, myopia, acute otitis media…), the reason behind it should be removed and therefore a treatment is compulsory.

Then, acupuncture should be applied on headaches typed as:

Every kind of migraine and other vascular headaches,
Tension (muscular contraction) headaches,
Sinusitis (acute or chronic) headaches,
Headaches depending on neck arthritis.

The side effects of painkillers is an effective reason by itself for bearing acupuncture treatment. For example, people who have gastritis or ulcer cannot use painkillers otherwise bleedings can happen in stomach or duodenum.

Besides the fact that acupuncture has no side effects, it is also possible to treat such diseases in the same treatment sessions. If we summarize the healing effect of acupuncture on migraine disease:

1. Acupuncture provides homeostasis balance,
2. Acupuncture stimulates endorphin which the body produce itself,
3. Serotonin of which the amount decreases during migraine attacks causes expansion of scalp artery. This substance amount is increased by acupuncture and removing the pain is aimed.
4. Substances which cause pain and produced in the body are decreased by acupuncture.

The biggest issue that wondered most is whether drug use during acupuncture treatment is correct or not. Medicine combinations can be used if necessary. For example, hoarseness seen on voice artists and teachers who use their voice mostly.
