Migraine Research Study Update

Dr. Copperman would like to share with you an update on the migraine study. The study is going very well. They have enrolled 15 participants and have a maximum of 25 participants with whom they will be working.

Each Participant who has begun the study has had a significant reduction in the number of migraines she has been experiencing. People have responded very positively to the sessions they have received. This is very exciting from a research standpoint.

They expect to complete enrollment in the study within the next few weeks. If you know of any women between ages 18 and 50 who have frequent migraines and would be interested in participating in the study, please forward to them a link to our website, www.kiatsu-research.org. Once we reach 25 participants enrollment will be closed.

The best way to contact him is through the website for the study.

Protect yourself from the Flu

Influenza is a respiratory infection that can cause serious complications, particularly to young children, older adults and people with certain medical conditions. Flu shots are the most effective way to prevent influenza and its complications. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months of age or older be vaccinated annually against influenza. We agree!

A pediatric dose is available, as well as a high-dose for adults age 65 and older. Call the office at 541-687-8581 to set up a time that works for you. If you happen to get your flu shot elsewhere please send us a message through the patient portal and we can record it in your chart.
