Acupuncture Beats Aspirin for Chronic Headache

A new, large study has confirmed that acupuncture is more effective than aspirin and other drugs for chronic headache.

"Acupuncture is becoming a favorable option for a variety of purposes, ranging from enhancing fertility to decreasing post-operative pain, because people experience significantly fewer side effects and it can be less expensive than other options," Dr. Tong Joo Gan, who led the study, said in a statement.

"This analysis reinforces that acupuncture also is a successful source of relief from chronic headaches."
