Migraine Headaches

These exercises for migraine headaches are designed to impact your symptoms so that you can experience the direct correlation between your (mis)alignment and the symptoms that you’re experiencing.

Please do keep in mind that whilst you should feel the difference after doing these exercises for elbow pain, they alone won’t fix the problem. To fix the problem long term, you will need to do a full program of exercises over a period of time.

A full program done consistently over a period of time will address the imbalances in your muscular and nervous systems that are currently present in your body (and which are the root cause of your pain).

So What Is Pain?

Pain is your body’s way of telling you “something is wrong” and is asking for action to make it better.

Common complaints for the migraine headaches include:

  • Increased Pressure In Areas Around Head
  • Impaired Vision
  • Dizziness
  • Light-Sensitivity
  • Sound-Sensitivity
  • Migraine
  • Gastrointestinal Disturbances

The Egoscue Method, in its 30 years of experience, believes that it’s the misalignment of your load bearing joints – your shoulders, hips, knees & ankles – that’s the cause of your elbow pain.

The first step in correcting the problem is to do these 2 exercises for migraine headaches.
