I suffered from cluster headaches with typical symptoms for thirty years. I received a variety of diagnoses and suggestions for cures, too numerous to mention. In my case I was cured by an experienced and intelligent chiropodist who usually treated sportsmen. He found a misalignment of the pelvis since one leg was slightly shorter than the other. This had led to pressure on a nerve. All nerves pass through the spine and each nerve serves several parts of the body. Manipulation of the pelvis relieved the cluster headache I had immediately. It returns if I stumble or lift heavy objects which moves the pelvis slightly out of kilter again: after thirty years the muscles have adapted to keep the pelvis in an incorrect position unfortunately. If you have one leg slightly shorter than the other this problem is more lightly to arise due to twisting of the pelvis and spine when you walk or run. Doctors are, unfortunately, seldom experts on the skeleton and the spine and tend to concentrate on organs and on chemicals, both measured and ordinated.
