Auricular acupuncture effective

Auricular acupuncture has a greater overall impact on headache-related quality of life than did traditional Chinese acupuncture, says a US study. The study, published in Medical Acupuncture journal, compared the effectiveness of usual care alone to usual care plus either auricular or traditional Chinese acupuncture in treating patients with headaches due to a previous traumatic brain injury (TBI) and showed a significant improvement in headache-related quality of life (QoL) with the addition of acupuncture.  The study was conducted on previously deployed members of the US military who had mild to moderate TBI and headaches.
