Headache Q & A

What is a headache?

A headache refers to any pain you feel in your head. The pain may range from a dull ache to sharp, shooting pain. A headache may last a few hours or days. 

Though almost everyone experiences the pain of a headache at least once in their life, some people have chronic headache pain. 

One Life Chiropractic specializes in helping people get fast, lasting relief from their pain condition using innovative tools that support your body’s natural healing power. 

What are the types of headaches?

There are several types of headaches. Some of the more common types include:

Tension headaches

A tension headache causes mild to moderate head pain from muscle tension. This is the most common type of headache and may result from excessive stress or insufficient sleep. 


Migraines are chronic headaches that cause severe pain, usually on one side of the head, along with other symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or light sensitivity. 

People with migraine headaches may have pain that lasts a few hours or days, which may occur two or more times a month. 

One Life Chiropractic specializes in treating migraines.

Cluster headaches

Cluster headaches cause the most severe pain. With a cluster headache, you have sharp, shooting pain in one eye that comes and goes. The pain may also cause eye tearing. 

If your headaches are severe or recurring, the providers at One Life Chiropractic can help. 

What happens during an evaluation for a headache?

The specifics of your headache evaluation at One Life Chiropractic depend on the type of headaches you have and the frequency and severity of your pain. However, you can expect a thorough exam focused on your whole health, not just your pain.

Your provider asks detailed questions about your headaches, including the pain type, the frequency of your head pain, and activities that trigger your discomfort. They ask about your typical day, diet, and exercise routine and review your medical history.
