Combination of Physiotherapy, Acupuncture Boosts Analgesia in Tension-Type Headache

Patients with tension-type headache (TTH) experience benefits from acupuncture and stretching, especially in combination with pressure pain threshold (PPT) physiotherapy hands-on techniques, according to a new study conducted in Athens, Greece.
The researchers undertook the study because, despite “weak to moderate evidence,” nonpharmacologic therapies for TTH and cervicogenic cephalalgia remain a treatment choice for many patients. Therefore, they sought to compare the effectiveness of the 2 alternative therapies. They compared an acupuncture/stretching protocol with an acupuncture/stretching plus physiotherapy technique in patients with TTH. The results of the study were published in Physiotherapy Research International.
