Acupuncture--even sham acupuncture--is as effective as standard drug therapy in preventing migraine, German researchers report.


This was true whether patients received "verum" acupuncture--using obligatory needling points and additional points selected by doctors on the basis of traditional Chinese methods--or sham acupuncture, in which needling is done on areas of the skin where there are no known traditional acupuncture points.

The multi-center study found the number of days that patients suffered from migraine was significantly reduced after they were treated with either acupuncture or drugs.
