Chronic muscle tension headaches are an extremely common condition treated in our Beaverton clinic, but both our chiropractors, massage therapists, and our acupuncturist. Today I'd like to share a short video of how acupuncture can be used to effectively treat headaches. In the video, licensed acupuncturist, Ryan Love, demonstrates techniques used in the office, and some of the immediate effects of needle stimulation to tight muscles. Watch closely when the needles are inserted into the upper trap muscles and you will see a brief twitch, known as a fasciculation.
If you are suffering from chronic tension headaches, we highly recommend adding acupuncture as a treatment option.
