Daith (Migraine) Piercings.


The NFHS has received a few inquiries surrounding the use of “Daith Piercings.” The piercing is shown in a picture to the right. The statement received from the National Federation of State High School Associations is as follows:


The NFHS has judged these devices to be jewelry. They should not be worn if the sport indicates that jewelry is not allowed.


The Sports Medicine Advisory Council considered the issue and cannot verify the premise behind the migraines. It is not safe and should not be worn during activity.
