Céphalées de tension
Revue systématique
Acupuncture for tension-type headache.
Cochrane Database Syst Rev. 2009 Jan 21;(1):CD007587.
Linde K, Allais G, Brinkhaus B, Manheimer E, Vickers A, White AR. P
 
11 ECR
2317 patients
Conclusions: In the previous version of this review, evidence in support of acupuncture for tension-type headache was considered insufficient. Now, with six additional trials, the authors conclude that acupuncture could be a valuable non-pharmacological tool in patients with frequent episodic or chronic tension-type headaches

Conclusions: In the previous version of this review, evidence in support of acupuncture for migraine prophylaxis was considered promising but insufficient. Now, with 12 additional trials, there is consistent evidence that acupuncture provides additional benefit to treatment of acute migraine attacks only or to routine care. There is no evidence for an effect of ‘true’ acupuncture over sham interventions, though this is difficult to interpret, as exact point location could be of limited importance. Available studies suggest that acupuncture is at least as effective as, or possibly more effective than, prophylactic drug treatment, and has fewer adverse effects. Acupuncture should be considered a treatment option for patients willing to undergo this treatment.

Davis MA, Kononowech RW, Rolin SA, Spierings EL
8 ECR

Revue systématique
Aust J Acupunct Chin Med. 2006;1:3-14.
Scott SW, Deare JC
25 ECR
3004 patients
Conclusions: The current evidence suggests that acupuncture is significantly superior to waiting list, at least as good as sham acupuncture, and of comparable efficiency to several proven drug therapies for the treatment and prevention of migraine.
