Fitness Training and Fascial Stretch Therapy

  • By angief

    Has anyone heard about fitness training and/or fascial stretch therapy and whether or not these would benefit a migraineur? I know my back and neck muscles are very tight, always have been and I’m sure that tightness could be a contributing factor in my migraines. I’m not able to find any research to support this therapy or fitness training as treatments for migraines.
    Thanks!

    afinkel – I actually really enjoy helping people with information about fitness and Migraines. Right now I am myself undergoing aqua therapy every other day, and I’ve had several other types of PT as well.

    Exercise itself is known to often help prevent Migraines. Here are some articles that might help you learn more about it:
