"Does your child get splitting headaches? Dr. Nancy Elwartowski is using chiropractic to help stop headaches, without the use of pain killers"

According to the American Chiropractic Association, nine out of ten Americans suffer from headaches. Dr. Nancy Elwartowski, a local Carmel, IN. chiropractor, is using chiropractic to successfully stop migraine headaches in hundreds of pediatric and adult patients who previously had little help from traditional medicine.

“Many of my patients felt like there was no hope for them,” says Dr. Nancy. “There is a large segment of our population who suffer silently with headache pain almost every day. They often turn to pain killers to temporarily stop the pain. But drugs only provide short term relief, it doesn’t fix the core problem at hand. We are using chiropractic to fix the source of the migraines and we are having excellent results.”

Is there evidence that chiropractic can stop headache pain? New research shows that spinal manipulation – the primary form of care provided by doctors of chiropractic – may be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck.

A report released in 2001 by researchers at the Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center in Durham, NC, found that spinal manipulation resulted in almost immediate improvement for those headaches that originate in the neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of tension-type headache than a commonly prescribed medication.

Dr. Elwartowski says that in recent years the medical community has embraced chiropractic because it offers treatment without the use of drugs or surgery. “In treating headache pain, most experts agree that conservative care should be tried before more invasive treatments are considered. That’s what chiropractic offers. It has a long history of effectively stopping pain yet doesn’t require the use of prescription or over the counter painkillers that can have negative consequences. Chiropractic is all-natural and frequently is more affordable than other options. We say why suffer when you don’t have to? We invite people to come on down and explore if chiropractic might work for them.”

    My son is also having a headache almost every week i thought it was normal because of the weather condition and the environment because he used to go school now. I just ignored it but there is a time he no longer endure the pain so i had to see a doctor and then they said that i should visit a chiropractor to help us. And now i see my son playing and studying very happy and healthy.
