Acupuncture as effective for migraines as drugs

An important study on acupuncture for the treatment of migraine headaches concludes that acupuncture is “of comparable efficiency to several proven drug therapies for the treatment and prevention of migraine.”  The treatment of migraines, a disabling and often severely painful form of headache, was researched across 25 randomised controlled trials involving 3,004 patients.    Acupuncture was concluded to be superior to a wait list, sham acupuncture, and comparable to drug therapy for the treatment and prevention of migraines in the study (Scott SW, Deare JC. Acupuncture for migraine: a systematic review. ‘Aust J Acupunct Chin Med’ 2006;1(1):3-14).
