Pain can often make us stop our normal routine, but recent studies have show that exercise can be highly beneficial in reducing tension headaches and migraine pain intensity and duration. We all get headaches and finding ways that can help reduce the painful experience without medication is something we could all benefit from.
As physiotherapists, we often see people with recurrent headaches and acute flair ups. While hands on treatment can be instrumental in reducing the initial acute pain, our advice often includes some form of exercise.
