Acupuncture for Migraine Headaches
My second case report was published in the September 2012 Journal of Chiropractic Medicine. The title is “Combination of acupuncture and spinal manipulative therapy: management of a 32-year-old patient with chronic tension-type headache and migraine.”
It documents the complete resolution of daily headaches with superimposed migraines after five treatments. This is noteworthy because this patient had suffered from episodic migraines since she was a teenager.
The neurological mechanisms of acupuncture and spinal manipulative therapy involved are also described in great detail.
I would like to thank Dr. Yihyun Kwon, DC, MSOM, PhD; my faculty advisor, Dr. Jerrilyn Cambron, DC, MPH, PhD; and Robert Hansen, Graphic Designer, for their contributions to this case report.
