More evidence for exercise as a migraine prevention tool

Exercise for headaches ?

A nice meta-analysis was recently published on migraine headahces.

The authors reviewed many of the recent research in regard to what affect exercise programs have on the frequency and intensity of migraine headaches.

They found that exercise was particularly beneficial for those suffering from low endorphins in their system as well as those that have other co-morbidity such as neck pain. More interestingly it appears that few bouts of high intensity training may be better than moderate exercise.

It’s certainly been the experience of Niseko Chiropractic that the best migraine treatment involves some moderate changes to lifestyle including a daily exercise program, some release work on the mucles in the back of the neck and having a good look at the triggers. Caffeine and alcohol usually seem to end up in the mix somewhere.
