Effective exercises help relieve headaches

Headaches are a very common ailment due to long working hours in front of computers or the use of smart phones for long periods.

Practicing effective exercise contributes to reducing stress and tension through the secretion of endorphins in the body, and exercise also helps to raise the quality of sleep.


Here are the most effective exercises that help relieve headaches:


First exercise

Yoga is a simple exercise that contributes to the treatment of severe headache pain, without the need for great physical exertion, as it improves blood flow to all parts of the body, especially the brain.

Kneel on your knees and place your palms on the mat. Slowly arch your back until the position resembles a cat sitting position. Lift your chest up away from your stomach and exhale, then gently contract the abdomen and lower the chest to rest against the thighs. Repeat the method at least 10 times.


Second exercise

Relaxing yoga poses with your legs folded under you. Take a deep breath and raise your arms above your head and try to stretch your torso as high as possible. Slowly bend and exhale and extend your arms forward until your forehead touches the floor. Close your eyes and breathe normally. Hold this position for 15 to 20 seconds. Raise your torso and return to the starting position.


Third exercise

Doing breathing exercises reduces stress and relieves headaches. Take a few deep breaths. Exhale slowly, then lower your head towards the chest and then move the head half a circle in one direction and then a semi-circle in the other direction. Take an extra deep breath and again slowly exhale.


Fourth exercise

Doing resistance exercises helps relieve headaches. Put the palms of the hands on the forehead. Press the head forward into the palm of the hand using the neck muscles. Keep the head vertical and resist the movement of the head with the palm of the hand.


Fifth exercise

Simple aerobic exercises such as running, walking and jumping help improve the flow of oxygenated blood to the brain, which contributes to relieving headaches and other pains that come with it.
