Strong headaches are caused by excessive stimulation of nerve cells, which removes chemicals that inflame blood vessels in the brain. The easiest way to get rid of migraines is daily exercises. Working out is equally effective in preventing headaches as medications for this condition. The most recommended activities are cycling, running and swimming.
