Treatment of Chronic Refractory Migraine with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine: A Case Series

Treatment of Chronic Refractory Migraine with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine: A Case Series

This case series demonstrates the successful treatment of migraine headache in two middle-aged female patients with multi-year symptom histories. Interventions consisted of weekly acupuncture treatments, along with Chinese herbal medicines and dietary modifications. Acupuncture points and herbal medicines were chosen based on the individual characteristics of each patient. Frequency, duration and intensity of migraine headaches decreased in both patients within the first week of treatment and resolved by the third month. These cases illustrate the successful treatment of chronic migraine headaches that were unresolved following conventional interventions. This case series forms part of a growing body of evidence that supports the use of acupuncture and herbal medicine as alternative options for the treatment of refractory migraine headaches.
