A moderate aerobics program can lessen the frequency and intensity of the migraine when
it occurs. However, continuous and strenuous exercise may in fact precipitate migraine
headache. So you have to be very careful as to the type of exercises you choose.
|Daily exercise is useful as a preventive measure, less effective in combating the pain
when the migraine attack is in progress. |
|Exercise can ease body tension and improve circulation. Both of these physiological
changes reduce the likelihood of migraine attacks. |
|Migraine sufferers who are placed on a regular aerobics training program cut the
frequency of their headaches in half. |
Here is a suggested exercise to relieve your migraine:
|Walk and/or run for thirty minutes a day, three times a week. As your body readjusts
over several months to the increase in oxygen, nutrients, and fitness level, you may
experience a reduction in your migraines.|
|Play a game that you enjoy, such as tennis, basketball, volleyball, softball, or soccer.|
|Ride a bicycle five times per week.|
