Good news for migraine headache sufferers!  No longer must you suffer in silence in a dark room with your rescue medications, afraid to do anything for fear of worsening your headache.  Recent research from Sweden shows that regular exercise can help.  Exercise, medications, and relaxation techniques were all equally effective in decreasing the rate of migraines.

Exercises That Help With Migraines:

  • Biking
  • Swiming
  • Walking
  • Yoga

In addition to regular exercise or relaxation, many studies have found that postural training and neck and upper back exercises can have a significant effect on reducing the frequency and intensity of headaches.  At Momentum Physical Therapy and Sports Rehab we can teach you a simple self-care program to help you manage your headaches.
