Frequently Asked Questions about Headache and Migraine Relief
Headaches are organized into two groups, primary and secondary headaches. A primary headache causes pain in your head, neck, or face. For example, migraines and tension headaches fall into primary headaches. Another group is secondary headaches. Another medical condition, such as stress or infection, causes these headaches. The team at Bolz Chiropractic in Topeka, KS, believes in the holistic treatment of headache and migraine conditions that cause pain and interfere with everyday life.

- Insufficient sleep
- Clenched jaw
