Objectives: The aim of this study was to develop and evaluate an exercise program to improve maximum oxygen uptake (VO2 max) in untrained patients with migraine without making their migraines worse. [VO2 max measures oxygen consumption and thus the body’s capacity to deliver & use it.]

Patients and methods: Twenty-six patients were studied at a headache clinic in Sweden. The exercise program, based on indoor cycling, was performed 3 times per week during 12 weeks. VO2 max, migraine status, side effects, and quality of life were evaluated.

Results:

• VO2 max increased from 32.9 mL/kg/minute to 36.2 mL/kg/minute (P = .044).

• Quality of life increased

• And significant improvements in migraine status (attack frequency, symptom intensity, and intake of medicine) were seen.

• During the 12 weeks of exercise, on one occasion one patient had a migraine attack, which started immediately after training. No other side effects were reported. [“No worsening of migraine status at any time during the study.”]

Conclusions: The evaluated exercise program was well tolerated by the patients and improved their VO2 max with no deterioration of migraine status.

I suffer from migraines
Posted by: BobSmiley

I suffer from migraines too, and if there was a way to continue exercising without having headaches, I would love to know. Usually the increased blood flow to the head would cause throbbing pains, and I have been looking for a treatment for that.
