Abstract: Headache is a common symptom of complicated etiology; treatment is
often ineffective when the intrinsic cause of the manifestation is not
identified. The author found that tonic headache was very common in
Germany, where few patients were helped in spite of various modalities of
treatment. Since acupuncture proved useful to many cases it is the author's
wish to add this ancient practice to the armory of the medical profession.
