Woman receiving Acupuncture for headachesUp to 75% of adults around the world will experience at least one headache this year. Of that figure, at least 30% will suffer from a migraine.

Headaches are extremely common, but you don’t have many choices in terms of treatment.

It’s almost second-nature to reach for a bottle of Advil when you feel the pain come on, but in reality, this can actually make your headaches worse in the long-run. Plus, these drug store medications can be toxic to the stomach or liver and interfere with the body’s natural inflammatory response.

Acupuncture in Houston offers an all-natural, long-term headache treatment solution.

Science-Based Acupuncture Treatment for Headaches

If you use drugs like Motrin or Advil to treat your headaches, this can build dependency and lead to a condition called medication-overuse headache. Instead of chasing symptoms, acupuncture treats your headaches at their source without any long-term adverse side effects.

Your doctor will insert tiny needles into various pressure points across the body. This process is virtually painless: you’ll only feel a slight sting. Studies have found that medical acupuncture is effective for reducing the symptoms of headaches—particularly tension headaches and migraines.

If you’re afraid of needles, Bear Creek Chiropractic Clinic also offers cold laser acupuncture as a needle-free alternative.
