  • AEgilius Spierings, Neurology, answered
    Acupuncture has long been used to treat headaches, but until 2009 there hadn't been strong evidence that this ancient Chinese practice had any clear benefit for headache pain. Then, two reviews from the Cochrane Collaboration (an international organization that provides comprehensive reviews of health care) concluded that acupuncture appears to prevent migraine as well as or possibly better than preventive medications and may also help people with episodic or chronic tension headache.
