Chronic Headache

Are you wondering about whether you can obtain relief for chronic headache with traditional Oriental medicine? If so, then you can come to our site for information on the treatment of chronic headache with acupuncture and Oriental medicines.

Traditional Chinese medicine is a rarely mastered art that is very popular in the Far East. For more than 2500 years, generations of patients and physicians have depended on traditional medicine for relief of all sorts of pain, including chronic headache.

One of the areas in which traditional medicine and acupuncture are very effective is in the treatment of chronic headaches. Patients who wish to reduce the number of drugs they have to take, or want to try to eliminate pharmaceutical drugs from their daily routine, should consider Oriental medicine. As side effects of pharmaceutical drugs are often dose related, if the dose can be reduced, patients can feel better.

The rare arts of traditional Oriental medicine for treating chronic headaches are now available in Cleveland. For an initial consultation for chronic headaches, you have to schedule an appointment with us. A consultation will be necessary so that we can determine whether the problem is a vascular headache, migraine headache, premenstrual headache, or tension headache. Sometimes pain is due to problems in the structures of the head; and sinus allergy, sinus congestion, ear infections, problems with the teeth, gums, jaw or temporal-mandibular joint are the cause for chronic headache. Occasionally pain from the eye structures or glaucoma is a contributing factor in headache. Very often people suffer from more than one type of headache, and it is common to have what we term, "mixed headache" disorders. A careful history and examination may suffice to suggest the diagnosis, but sometimes advanced diagnostic tests are necessary. Once you schedule an appointment, we will send a package of forms and questionnaires and an appointment card along with a return envelope.

Dr. L.B. Grotte, M.D., was the first physician in Ohio to be board certified in both acupuncture and Chinese herbology. He has studied Oriental medicine since 1972 and has practiced Oriental medicine in Cleveland for more than 27 years. Our small practice specializes in creating individualized treatment plans combining Western and Oriental methods.
