Dry needling is one of the most effective treatments I’ve seen for headaches. As one of the most experienced dry needlers in the state of Florida, I’ve provided over 30,000 dry needling treatments at my dry needling clinic in Tampa, FL. Let’s dive in to the current research on Dry Needling for Headaches!
Treating the Cause of Your Headaches With Dry Needling
When it comes to headaches, there are 3 kinds
- Tension-type headache (TTH)
- Cervicogenic headache (CGH)
The first step is an in-depth physical exam to attempt to recreate your headaches. If you haven’t had a hands on evaluation for your headaches and only tried medications, then your doctors have done a huge disservice and likely missed the cause of your headaches. I can’t tell you how many times I see patients who are diagnosed with “Migraines” but who really have tension headaches or cervicogenic (headaches that come from the neck). The good news is that once we figure out what muscles and nerves are causing your headaches, we can treat them directly with dry needling.
The Good News! Dry Needling Treats Headaches!
A recent systematic review & meta analysis (a study of studies) looked at 11 different research studies using Dry Needling for the Treatment Of Tension-Type, Cervicogenic, or Migraine Headaches and found some pretty outstanding results. When it comes to Tension Type Headaches and Cervicogenic Headaches, The synthesis of results showed that dry needling could significantly improve headache frequency, health-related quality of life, trigger point tenderness, and cervical range of motion in TTH and CGH.
