Great Post! Does Exercise Prevent Migraines as Good as Meds?



via Pain-Topics.org

Pain-Topics reviews another article regarding pain and exercise, this time on migraines. I see a lot of patients with the Dx "migraine" in my clinic; these cases usually turn out to be cervicogenic or tension headaches easily treated by manual therapy and exercise. Occasionally, the patients have true migraines that are unaffected by mechanical means.

Based on this article, despite the only modest effects, I am going to start prescribing more general exercise in the clinic while they're there twice a week, which only leaves them two more times to do it at home. Sometimes we get away from our roots, and since I am firmly rooted in OMPT and MDT, I sometimes forget what every PT should know... almost everyone could use more general exercise in their routine.
