Relief from Cluster Headaches from Your Tracy, CA Chiropractor

If you have a headache problem, you are not alone.  Nine of every 10 Americans experience this disorder.  Cluster headaches represent one of the most painful headache types.  Fortunately, natural treatments from our Ringer Chiropractic practice can reduce their severity and cut the number of episodes patients experience.

What are Cluster Headaches?

Cluster headaches get their name from the cyclical clusters in which they occur.  A cluster period can last weeks or months, followed by a remission.  This condition is rare and fortunately not life-threatening. 

A cluster headache frequently develops very fast, without any warning.  Common symptoms include:

  • Pain that is excruciating and that generally occurs in or surrounding one eye, sometimes radiating to the shoulders, neck, face, and head
  • Pain on one side only
  • Restless sensations
  • Tearing excessively
  • Eye redness on the afflicted side
  • Runny or stuffy nose on the afflicted side
  • Facial or forehead swelling
  • Pale or flushed face
  • Swelling around the eye on the side affected
  • A drooping eyelid

Patients occasionally report nausea and an aura before a cluster headache strikes.  Other signs also characteristic of migraines, such as sound and light sensitivity, might occur, although usually on just one side of the head.

Our chiropractors note that while the cause of a cluster headache remains elusive, distinct risk factors exist:

  • Higher prevalence among males than among females
  • Age at onset between 20 and 50
  • Smoking tobacco
  • Using alcohol
  • Having a family history

In general, healthcare providers do not link this condition to triggers.  They suspect that problems with the hypothalamus and certain medications, among them nitroglycerin, might have a role in cluster headache development.

Treatment Options from Our Practice

Patients are often upset by cluster headaches because of their debilitating nature.  Chiropractic treatment seeks to help the body self-heal and function at an optimal level.  The healing process requires boosting communication between the brain and the body.

Chiropractic adjustments, also called spinal manipulations, return proper joint motion and help the nervous system achieve proper communication.  Our doctors focus on the upper neck joints to treat cluster headache problems.  The first neck vertebra, C1, is the joint most often misaligned among headache sufferers.
