An Update On The Daith Survey Study

daith surveyLast week, we announced that a colleague of ours was hoping to gather more information about the daith piercing and its role in migraine relief. We’re still hoping to collect more information, so if you have a daith piercing and you haven’t taken the quick five-minute survey yet, please do us a favor and find a few minutes to complete it.

So far more than 100 individuals have filled out the surveys, and the results have yielded some interesting findings. Although it’s still too early to really dig in and analyze the findings, the majority of individuals said the daith piercing helped to reduce their headache pain. The findings were also consistent for individuals with the worst types of headaches – migraines.

Daith Piercing Findings

So again, if you still haven’t taken the survey, you can click here and fill out the survey. Here are some more responses from the survey so far. The majority of people who underwent the daith piercing:

  • Were pleased they had the procedure.
  • Reported a consistent reduction in intensity and frequency of both mild and migraine headaches.
  • Reported a reduction in painkiller intake.
  • Reported an increased number of “better days.”

Additionally, some people experienced headache relief after the piercing was removed, which suggests that continued pressure on the vagus nerve may not be necessary for full relief.

So if you have a few minutes and want to help us gather more information on the subject, please consider clicking the above link to take the survey. If you’re still not sure about the daith piercing, feel free to check out some of our old blog posts on the topic, and if you have any questions or comments, leave them in the comments section below. Thanks again for helping us learn more about the daith piercing and pain pathways!
