Stopping Headaches Without Drugs

Published onsdag 29 november 2006 kl 11.21

New Swedish research concludes that several types of non-drug treatments can provide long-lasting improvements for patients with chronic tension headaches.

The research team of physical therapists from Gothenburg’s Sahlgrenska University Hospital tested physical exercise, relaxation training, and acupuncture as alternatives to drugs. They say it is important that analgesics are discontinued as a first step in treating tension headaches.

The research team studied 90 patients, who had chronic tension-type headaches for an average of 7 years. The different therapies were all approximately equally successful.
