Exercise Instead of Drugs for Migraines
Patients have treatment options for almost all ailments. Some options rely on drugs to address the ailment. Others take a more natural or holistic approach.
Migraine headaches also have a variety of treatment options. Exercise has been shown to reduce the frequency of migraine attacks. A recent study showed that those migraine sufferers who exercised for 40 minutes three times a week saw a reduction in the number of migraine attacks. Researchers concluded that “exercise may be an option for the prophylactic treatment of migraine in patients who do not benefit from or do not want to take daily medication.”
All drugs have side effects. The first choice for migraine sufferers should be chiropractic care, nutrition and regular exercise.
