Chronic headaches, migraines and neck pain are common health concerns and I see many patients with these conditions. Modern stressful lifestyle habits of sitting at a computer for hours, driving long distances, lack of exercise and dehydration are frequent triggers and often, people become reliant on over the counter painkillers to get through their day.
Acupuncture is proven to be an effective solution for headaches and neck pain and NICE (National Institute for Health & Care Excellence) has now included acupuncture as a recommended treatment for this condition.
In their recommendations, NICE has also noted how the overuse of painkillers is actually one of the most common causes of headaches. Taking aspirin, paracetamol or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications like Ibuprofen for more than 15 days each month can initiate a vicious cycle of worsening headaches which then require more pain relief.
For the majority of headache sufferers, this means their medications are making them feel worse, not better!
