Direct Your Weight for Migraine Prevention

By Nabta Team

Obesity has been linked with migraines - the risk of getting migraines increases with increased BMI, from normal to overweight to obese, steadily. In addition, obese people who get episodes of migraines are more likely to progress to daily migraines. Specifically aerobic exercises like running, cycling, swimming, elliptical training, and climbing stairs are very good for preventing episodes of migraine. These exercises are great for managing your weight which is included in the treatment of migraines.
