Clinical Trial:  to cross-sectionally compare objectively measured physical activity (PA) levels and their association with migraine characteristics in obese women with and without migraine.

CONCLUSIONS:

Obese women with migraine spent nearly 1.5 hours/day less in PA compared to controls; however, lower PA was not related to migraine characteristics. Further research is needed to identify PA barriers and effective interventions in obese women with migraine. See full article here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25475207
