Yes! Acupuncture Can Really Help Relieve the Severe Pain of Cluster Headaches!

What are Cluster Headaches?

There is not a lot of information or help out there for Cluster Headaches. Unfortunately many, including doctors do not understand the severity of these headache types and can be prone to categorize them as “migraines.” Well, cluster headaches are more like migraines on steroids! Extreme and sudden pain occurs with cluster headaches and often patients end up in the E.R. the first time they get one for this reason. It is referred to as the “Suicide” headaches due to the extreme pain causing a desire to die!

However, Cluster Headaches are not an actual emergency.

Why You Should Supplement with Magnesium:

7 Signs/ Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency:

  • Anxiety
  • Low Energy
  • Constipation
  • Muscle Cramps
  • Imbalanced Mood
  • Headaches/ Migraines
  • Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS)

Aleesha D Acupuncture Treats Restless Legs Syndrome.

Patient Testimonial on RLS Here

 

Which Type of Magnesium Should I Take?

The type of magnesium depends on digestive symptoms…

Take Magnesium Citrate to help with Mood, Energy and Constipation. Magnesium Citrate is the magnesium type that is actually prescribed at the hospital to help get things moving again after surgery and the medications given that both can cause constipation. If taking for constipation, back off the dosage if diarrhea results. Too much Magnesium (just like too much vitamin C) can cause diarrhea. It can be a good way to measure the threshold of how much Magnesium (Citrate) to take.

Take Magnesium Glycinate to help with Mood and Energy if you already have regular, daily bowel movements. Taking the Citrate form when you are already having regular, daily bowel movements will probably result in loose stool and possibly diarrhea.

 

Why Can’t I Just Eat Magnesium-Rich Foods Instead?

Unfortunately, it is very difficult to get enough Magnesium in our foods now days. This is because the soil which the normally Magnesium-rich foods grow in are deficient of Magnesium due to conventional fertilizers, over-tilling the soil, and not rotating crops appropriately. The roots of plants cannot pull up out of the ground what is just not there. So, the food is devoid of Magnesium.

 

Wouldn’t Low Magnesium Show in my Labs?

Less than 1% of Magnesium is found in the blood, so this is not the best way to test if you are getting enough Magnesium.

Checking the Signs and Symptoms above is a better way.

Helps with Vitamin D absorption (which you need to absorb Calcium)

Blood Pressure Regulation

Lower Cholesterol Serum &Triglycerides

Aids Digestion of Carbohydrates

Helps Metabolism (and Weight loss)

Acupuncture for Car Accident Injury and Pain (Pain and Women’s Health in Anoka, MN)

Acupuncture for Back Pain, Neck Pain and Headaches after Auto Injury 

Acupuncture can help relieve back pain, neck pain and headaches due to auto accident injury. Low back pain, neck tension and recurring headaches or migraine are common after car accidents and many people see great results with acupuncture.

Why Get Acupuncture for Neck Pain?

Acupuncture helps with sore neck due to whiplash (subluxation) after auto accident. After a car accident imaging such as fMRI often shows nothing is wrong, though a patient is still suffering from aches and pains. This is because muscles and ligaments may be strained in the neck, causing pain. Acupuncture helps lower inflammation and trigger point acupuncture helps release tight muscles to relieve pain. Acupuncture can also relieve chronic neck pain by breaking up scar tissue within the muscle fascia, left over from old auto accident injuries. This helps relieve muscle spasm pain and stiffness in the neck and shoulders.

Acupuncture for Migraine Headaches

Migraine Headache Testimonial

Acupuncture helps relieve headaches and migraines after auto accident, whether the headache pain is located at the base of the neck, the forehead, temples, top of the head, jaw/ facial pain or pain all over the entire head. Acupuncture helps all types of headaches, whatever the root cause.

  • Allergy headaches
  • Cluster headaches
  • Migraine headaches
  • Muscle tension headaches
  • Sinus headaches
  • Stress-related headaches
  • TMJ (temporal mandibular jaw syndrome) headaches
  • Trigeminal neuralgia headaches

 

Acupuncture for Back Pain

Back Pain Patient Testimonial

Acupuncture is well known for improving acute back pain, whether due to muscle strain or herniated disc, also known as a “slipped” disc or spondylolisthesis (where a disc slips over the vertebra beneath it). Acupuncture is also good for congenital (since birth) back pain, such as pain of spina bifida. Acupuncture is good for chronic back pain due to many reasons, including arthritis pain and degenerative disc disease.

  • Acute (recent) back pain
  • Chronic (long-term) back pain
  • Congenital (since birth) back pain

What is the Science behind How Acupuncture Decreases Pain?

Acupuncture decreases pain by inciting the body to release specific endorphins which relieve pain, acupuncture increases Qi and blood (circulation) to the affected area and decreases inflammation in the body (inflammation causes pain and chronic inflammation causes disease).

  • Acupuncture releases Pain-relieving endorphins (hormones)
  • Acupuncture increases circulation
  • Acupuncture lowers inflammation

Why try Acupuncture For Pain?

Acupuncture works for pain relief (well-researched for pain relief) and is a medical treatment alternative to medications which may be habit-forming (addictive) and may lead to further issues. Some patients find they are able to avoid back surgery for pain after acupuncture treatments.

Licensed acupuncturists look for the root cause of the pain instead of merely treating and covering up the symptoms, in order to not only stop the pain, but also keep the pain from returning (prevention).

For instance, three people may present with headaches and instead of giving each individual the same pill or using the same set of prescribed acupuncture points, they are each asked detailed questions in order to find out the root cause, i.e., genetics, hormonal, allergies, stress, physical trauma due to injury, etc.

  • Research proves acupuncture is effective for treating pain
  • Acupuncture treats the root cause, not just the symptoms
  • Acupuncture treats the individual (treatments are specific to each individual)
  • Acupuncture is an effective alternative to pain killers and sometimes to recommended surgery

How Many Acupuncture Treatments?

Acupuncture should relieve pain within about three treatments and significant pain relief should happen after about six treatments, in general. However, individuals react differently to acupuncture and many factors need to be considered such as, how long the issue has been around (chronic versus acute pain), compliance or how well patient follows practitioner recommendations, such as frequency of treatments and at-home-care, other factors like age, overall health of the individual and how quickly one’s body responds to acupuncture.

Do you ever wonder when you should be worried about your headache pain? Headaches are a common main complaint for patients and acupuncture is an effective treatment for headaches and migraines in Anoka. However, some headaches should never be ignored…When should you seek medical attention for a headache or migraine?

  1. Severe or Sudden Headache!
  • Headaches with severe pain
  • and sudden onset
  • with other Neurological signs

Any headache which starts suddenly with severe pain intensity or with other neurological signs, such as dizziness, vomiting, or unconsciousness can be a sign of bleeding of the brain or another medical emergency and should be taken serious. Often times people will describe this type of headache as a “thunderclap” headache due to the quick, intense pain or as “the worst pain I have ever felt.” Complete medical work-up may be necessary. Aleesha D Acupuncture in Anoka successfully treats headaches and migraines.

Any headache with severe, sudden onset warrants immediate medical care.

2. Severe Headache with Stiff Neck!

  • Headaches with severe pain
  • and Stiff Neck
  • and flu-like signs/symptoms

A headache with sudden, severe pain, stiff neck and flu-like symptoms such as fever could be a serious infection called Meningitis and warrants immediate medical attention to avoid permanent brain damage or even death. Headache due to Meningitis may include the following signs or symptoms; confusion, double vision, fever, light sensitivity, nausea and or vomit.

It is critical to seek immediate medical care with Meningitis-like headache in order to avoid permanent brain damage, blindness, deafness, and even death.

3. Sudden, Severe Headache with Dizziness!

  • Headaches with sudden, severe pain
  • and Dizziness
  • possible nausea/ vomiting
  • possible one-sided body impairment
  • Difficulty walking and/or talking

Sudden, severe headache with dizziness and nausea/ vomiting could be due to Meniere’s Disease.  Severe headache may be due to Stroke, especially with confusion, impaired speech or movement (especially one side of the body) or one side of the face appears to be drooping.

It is critical to seek immediate medical care with Stroke-like headache to avoid permanent speech impairment, permanent motor (movement) and/or sensory (feeling) impairment and possible death.

4. Sudden Headache following Head Trauma!

  • Headaches following trauma
  • which worsen
  • with confusion
  • with drowsiness
  • with cognitive impairment
  • with changes in eye(s) or vision
  • with unconsciousness

Headache after head trauma, especially worsening headache could be due to concussion or Traumatic Brain Injury (T.B.I.).

It is critical to seek medical attention which may include brain imaging for worsening headache after any head trauma to rule out concussion, TBI or determine which degree of TBI; it is possible some degree of long-term damage may be avoided with proper medical care.

5. Headache following Two Consecutive (Immediate) Head Traumas!

Consecutive head traumas occurring back-to-back, one following the other is common in contact sports such as hockey, football and boxing and it is critical to seek immediate medical attention to hopefully avoid long-term damage from a double concussion.

It is critical to seek immediate medical attention for Headache after two consecutive blows to the head as a double concussion can occur (even with minor concussion) called Second Impact Syndrome (SIS) whereby the brain swells without time for inflammation to go down in between concussions–This can result in a catastrophic outcome!

Look for a licensed acupuncturist in your area to see if acupuncture can help with your headaches or migraines.

Aleesha D Acupuncture treats headaches and migraines due to many different causes, including Migraine headaches, Cluster headaches, Trigeminal Neuralgia headaches, Hormonal headaches, Headaches due to injury, Stress-induced headaches, Muscle tension headaches, etc. Aleesha has treated patients with long-term issues after multiple concussions and those dealing with the effects of T.B.I.

Why Do Concussion/ TBI Patients Seek Acupuncture?

Acupuncture cannot undue the long-term brain damage with T.B.I., whether auto accident or sports injury was involved in the head injury. However…

Acupuncture can help manage some of the symptoms which lowers the quality of life (Q.O.L.) in many patients with lingering issues from concussion or TBI.

 

Acupuncture often helps patients who have had concussion(s) or minor degree of TBI with symptoms such as:

  • Mood

  • Energy

  • Appetite

  • “Brain fog”

  • Low libido

  • Sleep issues

Acupuncture for Chronic Pain in Anoka

Many patients have chronic (long-term) issues including chronic pain. Acupuncture treats pain due to diagnosed disease or known causes such as auto accidents, congenital (since birth) as well as pain due to unknown cause or syndromes, such as Fibromyalgia with joint and muscle pain which moves around and pain which may come and go.

 

Acupuncture for Acute Pain

Acupuncture also treats acute (short-term) pain such as sprains and strains, muscle tension and back pain.

 

Acupuncture for General Pain

Aleesha D Acupuncture in Anoka treats pain from past injury, overuse injury, accident or trauma, as well as new pain from more recent (acute) onset, such as auto accident injury causing migraine headaches, neck pain and back pain in Anoka.

 

Acupuncture for Pain Caused by…

Acupuncture can treat pain from a new or old sports injury, repetitive stress injury pain, pain from a new or old auto accident injury, pain from inflammation, nerve entrapment pain and numbness, congenital pain (since birth), pain inherited due to genetic cause, pain from diagnosed disease, condition or syndrome, or even pain of unknown cause.

Is Acupuncture Safe?

This is a safe, non-medication (non-habit forming) treatment for pain. Needles are FDA-approved and single-use only.

Acupuncture is considered a medical treatment. This is why licensed acupuncturists must pay a state medical tax.

To ensure your safety, be sure to ask if the acupuncturist is licensed (not merely certified) before making your first acupuncture medical appointment. Do not risk it.
