[Current methods of migraine reflexotherapy]
Results of treating 166 patients from migraine by reflexotherapy methods (acupuncture, electropuncture, electroacupuncture) are presented along with the data of clinico-genealogical, electrophysiological (EEG, REG, OPG, ECG) and biochemical (serotonine, histamine, and dopamine blood levels) examinations performed prior to and after the reflexotherapy course. Recommendations for treating migraine with reference to the form, stage, intensity, and localization of the headache are given. A positive effect of the reflexotherapy was obtained in 95.9% of the patients: this was confirmed by the control clinico-electrophysiological and biochemical findings.
