Description

Migraines affect millions of people worldwide. Decades of research have gone into studying migraines, but very little has been found on their causes and treatments. This is because the brain is so complex. Neurologists tend to give prescription after prescription to migraine patients, but patients want something more than a pill; they want a more holistic approach to treat their migraines. This comprehensive review of the literature examines the reported benefits of yoga and cardiovascular exercises, as compared to conventional care, with regard to migraine symptoms, intensities, and frequencies. The purpose of this literature review is to find a correlation between exercise and the potential improvement of patients’ migraines.
