How to Reduce & Relieve Headaches : How Exercise Can Reduce Headaches


Hello my name is Dr. Susan Jewell and today
on behalf of Expert Village I am going to talk to you about how to recognize and treat
pain for headaches. Now in this clip I’m going to talk about one of the ways that you can
help alleviate all that usually occurs with headaches or the duration of headaches when
you’re actually experiencing an episode. Now one of the ways that you can do it of course
is exercise and lifestyle. Now a lot of the headaches are induced by increased stress
and tension on the body – muscular tension- so if you exercise then of course exercising
will help to – release – relax your body, relax all the muscular tension and also increase
the blood circulation and oxygen to many parts of your body and obviously to the vessels
that actually deliver oxygen to your brain. And that will also help to alleviate the pain
and the stress from the headaches. So here, like I said, exercise and lifestyle increases
circulation, oxygen; it relaxes muscular tension to help reduce stress and anxiety. And, also
exercising increasing the blood flow will also eliminate toxic wastes from the body
cause some compounds or toxic wastes that you have circulating now in the body go to
your brain can also trigger off headaches, migraine headaches or tension headaches. Also
exercise and changing a good lifestyle will give you a sense of wellbeing and that will
also help to enhance your body and your mental health and decrease anxiety and stress. And
one of the major contributing factors for a lot of headaches, cause of headaches, of
course smoking and alcohol. So definitely if you can not smoke and also reduce your
alcohol intake that will also help you to cope and reduce the frequency and duration
of headaches.
