Worried that exercise might make your migraine worse?
You might be worried that physical activity could make your migraine worse, as many people have noted exercise can be a trigger for migraine. However, research suggests that moderate aerobic exercise can have a therapeutic effect on migraine possibly reducing the frequency and severity of migraine attacks.
Benefits of exercise include reducing stress, improving the quality of sleep patterns and producing a feeling of well being. Exercise also stimulates your body to release natural pain controlling chemicals and natural anti-depressant chemicals. Embarking on a well planned exercise program could lead to better management of your condition and a possible reduction of medication.
