Avoiding Headaches During Workouts
These Can Be Tension Headaches Or Excess Intracranial Pressure
Sometimes you may experience a headache during a workout. It might be the body’s reaction to the physical effort. If the pain is around the temples, the cause might be excess blood flow into the brain, expanding the arteries and resulting in intracranial pressure. The solution is to hydrate before the workout and warm up, which reduces rises in intracranial pressure. If you feel that a headache is coming, you can constrict the blood vessels in the scalp and head by cooling the head with cold water. If the headache can go from the back to the front of the head, it might be a tension headache, which can be avoided by working out muscles below the neck. Additional details click here.
