What are cluster headaches and what are the symptoms?

Cluster headaches are a type of headache that recurs in groups or cycles. The pain is severe and is often described as burning or stabbing. It usually affects only one side of the face, and may also cause drooping of the eyelid and watering of the eye on that side. Other symptoms can include nasal congestion. Cluster headaches are more common in women than men. Cluster periods can last for several weeks or even months, followed by a remission period during which the headaches go away. If you suffer from cluster headaches, you may be able to find relief by seeing a chiropractor for upper cervical care. Upper cervical care is a type of chiropractic that focuses on the alignment of the top two bones in the neck. This area is important because it houses the brainstem, which controls many vital functions in the body. When these bones are out of alignment, it can cause a miscommunication between the brain and the body, which may trigger cluster headaches. If you are looking for a natural way to relieve your cluster headaches, upper cervical care may be right for you.
