What does treatment involve?
Chiropractic has been shown to effectively help reduce the severity, frequency and duration of headaches.
Unlike pain killing drugs, we treat the cause of the pain not just the pain itself. We will carry out a detailed consultation and physical examination (including x-rays if necessary) and ask you detailed questions about your medical history and lifestyle, to discover the probable cause of your headaches.
At Advanced Healthcare, once the diagnosis has been made, Dr. Pisarek will use a variety of specific and basically painless manipulation or adjustment techniques in order to mobilize (free) the neck joints; stretch, relax and strengthen the neck muscles; and remove spinal nerve irritation. He may also incorporate various physiotherapy modalities including the effective use of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) and electro-acupuncture stimulation for pain and anti-inflammatory management. Also, stretching and muscle strengthening exercises along with nutritional advice including lifestyle modification will be part of the treatment program plan.
We recommend that you undergo a trial treatment program. The minimum number of sessions required varies from patient to patient depending on their presenting case history.
Some patients enjoy almost immediate relief, while others notice a gradual easing of their symptoms over a period of several weeks. This will all depend on the nature and chronicity of the patient's specific headache problem.

I have been a patient of Dr. Pisarek for a few years now. Every morning I have to say "thank you Dr. P.!". Your care and your treatment renew my energy... no more pains in my lower back, knee and foot. With your help I lost 20 pounds and I am keeping it off. I am really grateful to you and your wife Hilda for taking care of me. My retirement got a new meaning, thanks to you.
