Dextrose Prolotherapy for Recurring Headache and Migraine Pain
Authors: Ross A. Hauser, MD and Heather McCullough, MA
Practical Pain Management. June 2009:58-65.
Headaches and migranes are a common occurrence and can be multi-factorial in origin with various triggers. It is thought that weak or loose neck ligaments and/or tendons may act as headache triggers in some people, validating the use of dextrose prolotherapy as a reasonable treatment option. To this end, the authors of this retrospective pilot study analyzed treatment of patients at the Beulah Land charity medical clinic which operated from 1994 to 2005 in Thebes, Illinois. The authors have done an excellent job of collecting and interpreting the data and discussing the issues in this most interesting study.
