Why Consider the Blair Upper Cervical Method for Cluster Headaches

Cluster headaches are rare compared to other types of headaches and affect men more than women, and can be extremely painful. The individual headaches themselves are short, compared to migraines or many tension headaches, For many people, they happen seasonally, and can be mistaken for allergies. 

There is still a lot of mystery surrounding the exact cause of a cluster headache, but it is suspected that the misalignment of the C1 and C2 vertebrae contribute to the need for cluster headache treatment because of stress on the brain stem. An upper cervical chiropractor in Marysville, such as Health First Chiropractic, can assess whether or not these vertebrae are properly aligned and causing pain and interference of the brain stem. Correcting this interference is helpful in restoring the proper communication between the brain stem and these vertebrae. This is thought to release naturally occurring chemicals that can restore the cerebrospinal fluid flow.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Clarke is the best in the business!!! He is knowledgeable, thorough, passionate, kind compassionate, and always professional. He worked me into his already busy schedule, when I was having severe vertigo, caused by a pinched nerve in my neck. Dr. Clarke had me back to good in just a few short weeks."
    Jennifer D.
  • "I have had a hard time finding relief for my back pain, I've been a chronic 7 for almost 5-6 years now (on a pain scale from 1 -10). After about 6-7 visits and after 3-4 adjustments, I was amazed to realize I no longer had any back pain. Dr. Clarke was careful about doing adjustments until he saw all my x-rays, which I appreciated, as my mid-back was literally like a 'brick' and I didn't want to get hurt in the process. He is very gentle with the adjustments and I'm still somewhat speechless tha"
