Tension Headaches

Have you been curious about acupuncture treatment for tension headache? If so, visit our site for information on reducing tension headaches with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicines.

Although acupuncture and herbal medicines are widely used in the Far East, recently there has been increasing interest among Western doctors in the techniques of acupuncture and herbal medicine. One reason is that for more than 2500 years, generations of patients and physicians have depended on acupuncture and herbal medicine for the relief of painful chronic conditions such as tension headache.

The level of pain is not a reliable indicator of the cause of the pain. Tension headaches can become very severe and the pain levels can be high enough that it is impossible to work or function. Untreated, tension headache can even become daily or chronic, resulting in high intake of medication which can lead to serious side effects. Rebound headache can then occur if you try to reduce your level of medication. If you have more than 2 or 3 headaches a month, you should investigate acupuncture and traditional herbal medicine to help your headaches. Chronic pain problems tend to become more complex as time passes, so evaluation soon after the symptoms appear is recommended.

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 25 years. Our small practice specializes in creating individualized treatment plans combining Western and Oriental methods.
