The study revealed that exercise and relaxation techniques were found to be good in preventing migraines especially among those who cannot or are unwilling to take medicines. 
 

"Our conclusion is that exercise can act as an alternative to relaxations and topiramate when it comes to preventing migraines, and is particularly appropriate for patients who are unwilling or unable to take preventative medicines," researchers said.
