Cluster Headache Treatment
Cluster headaches: The least common — although the most severe — type of primary headache, the pain of a cluster headache is intense and may be described as having a burning or piercing quality that is throbbing or constant. The pain is so severe that most cluster headache sufferers cannot sit still and will often pace during an attack. The pain is located behind one eye or in the eye region, without changing sides. The term “cluster headache” refers to headaches that have a characteristic grouping of attacks. Cluster headaches occur one to three times per day during a cluster period, which may last two weeks to three months. The headaches may disappear completely (go into “remission”) for months or years, only to recur.
Using specific protocols that have been developed over years of clinical research and practical application, Dr. Andrew White will design a treatment plan to help you get relief from your cluster headache. The treatment plan will probably include physiotherapy to reduce swelling of the soft tissues in the upper cervical spine, muscle balancing and stretching to reduce nerve irritation, and gentle joint mobilization to improve small joint biomechanics.
