Exercise For Migraine Sufferers

Posted Mar 29 2009 12:00am

Individuals who suffer from migraines are typically less physically active than those who don’t. Patients who experience migraines often avoid exercise, resulting in less aerobic endurance and flexibility for fear of triggering a headache. While physical exercise has been shown to trigger migraine headaches among sufferers, a new study describes an exercise program that is well tolerated by patients. The program was based on indoor cycling such as a recumbant bike (for continuous aerobic exercise) and was designed to improve maximal oxygen uptake without worsening the patients’ migraines. if you have an indoor bike, try a short session to increase your cardiovascular health and burn some calories.
