Recovery from daily headaches and migraines for 5 years: Abigail’s story.


Migraine headaches were ruining her life…

For about 5 years, Abigail had been suffering with daily headaches. That’s right, a headache every single day and approximately 10-15 migraines each month. Through those years, she tried everything to get relief – neurologists, massage, medications, even counseling (as if it was psychosomatic). But the pain was real, and it was taking over her life.

Debbie’s Recovery from Chronic Daily Migraine Headaches


Migraine headaches, 14 years of agony, and living pain free.

14 years ago, Debbie was a healthy, happy lady, and then tragedy hit – literally. She was struck on the top of her head by a falling garage door that broke free from its cable. She sustained serious injuries to her head, neck and back and developed chronic pain in each of those areas. Along with that came the migraines. Eventually, Debbie was experiencing migraine headaches nearly every single day. She was missing out on life, barely getting by, and suffering miserably. Although she was alive, there was nothing enjoyable about any given day.

How it feels to have migraine headaches eliminated:

Migraine Treatment Success and Recovery from Depression and Fatigue


Migraine headaches every week, and depression that wasn’t getting better.

When Ms. L came to see us initially, she was in an awful state. She had extreme fatigue and was basically confined to her couch or bed. There was depression, deep depression that wiped out any interest or desire in life’s activities. And there were migraines too, lots of them.

In the beginning, she didn’t even care about getting better. Her family took the initiative and nearly forced her to get the care that she needed. But as the fog lifted and the pain started to subside, Ms. L started to ‘wake back up’. As she started feeling like herself again, she started fighting tooth and nail to squeeze every drop of improvement that she could from our office. It was amazing to see how, week by week, she would have more energy, less pain, and the depression started loosing it’s grip on her, until one day she realized that it was all gone.

Migraine recovery is possible: Ms. L’s story:

It was a happy ending that we couldn’t have imagined ourselves. The headaches are gone, the energy is back, she’s back to work and feeling good about her life, not to mention how much better her family became as she was freed from her burden. We have been honored to care for Ms. L and are so happy to see her in her new pain-free life.

Migraine Treatment – Options, Questions, and Information


Chronic Migraine Headaches and the standard medical approach

If you suffer from chronic migraine headaches, you are not alone. In fact, you are part of a family of migraine sufferers who is much bigger than it should be. And as you know, this is not a happy family.
Chronic migraines affect millions of people in the US and a large percentage of those people experience headaches frequently, if not daily. Of course, the severity and urgency of this problem has prompted the fields of science and healthcare to explore the ways and means to bring relief to the pain. As the knowledge and understanding of migraine headaches continues to grow, there is an immediate need to help people with the pain they continue to experience, even as the process of research continues.
With that being said though, we would like to explore the standard medical options in migraine treatments.

Standard medical treatments for chronic migraine headaches

#1 Medication Management. This is the first choice of allopathic medicine and by far, the most common line of therapy. There are numerous medications prescribed for migraines. They can be prescribed in multiple combinations and for various reasons. Medications can certainly be of benefit, but if you are still suffering with chronic headaches, I would suggest that a very significant piece of the puzzle is missing,or not being addressed. Additionally, if you think about chronic headaches as a raging fire with billowing smoke, medications are only blowing the smoke away, not dousing the underlying fire.
#2 Trigger Point Injections. Trigger points are those muscle knots which can radiate pain far away from where they are located. They can be nasty for sure, but are they really the cause of the chronic headache? Because a muscle only does what they brain tells it to, it would make sense to find out why neurological reasons why the trigger points continue to emerge. Injections can decrease some pain, but they do not solve the underlying dysfunction.
#3 Botox Injections. Here again, injections can be used to alter the function of nerves. Some people do experience good results with Botox injections, but some do not. Completely stopping the normal function of a nerve can result in pain relief, but it certainly alters other, non-pain functions as well.
#4 Lifestyle Management. What you come into contact with through your daily life can be important in the development and exacerbations of headaches. Many factors can be involved in this

After reviewing these standard medical treatments for chronic migraine headaches, it is important to point out that none of them are geared towards problem solving, or figuring out the real cause, or understanding the mechanisms behind the pain, and how to permanently resolve it. So with that being said, let’s outline some of the testing and procedures we use in order to fully investigate and treat chronic migraine headaches.
#1 Check for inflammation. Inflammation can be present in either the body, the brain, or both. The presence of inflammation is a signal that the immune system is overactive and needs to be addressed in order to quench the fire. Chronic inflammation means constant irritation which could affect body tissues as well as nerves and brain tissue, predisposing it to abnormal function. Investigating the causes of immune activation could include factors such as: hidden infections, food allergies, toxic exposure, nutrient depletion,

genes and more…
#2 Check for Neurotransmitter dysfunctions. You’ve probably heard the term ‘chemical imbalance’, but has anyone ever objectively tested your brain chemicals? We have the capability of checking exactly which neurotransmitters may be depleted, or which are overactive. Either situation could predispose to abnormal brain function.
#3 Check for proper function of the brain and nerves. In addition to chemistry, the brain runs on electricity. The vibrancy of the electrical transmission in the brain can be checked during a thorough functional neurology exam. The goal is to determine which ‘circuits’ are involved and to what extent.
#4 Check for hormonal dysfunctions. Multiple hormonal systems can be affected by, and contribute to, chronic migraine headaches. Sometimes, the hormonal issues can be viewed as a ‘chicken or egg’ scenario, but it is important to see exactly how the endocrine system is involved in a situation of chronic migraine headaches. These factors could include the thyroid, adrenals, pancreas, and pituitary glands.
Then what to do about all this…
At Keystone Chiropractic Neurology, our goal is to figure out exactly why you are having chronic migraine headaches, and what to do to fix it. Dr. Sullivan might choose to explore any or all of these health factors, specific to your history and examination. Putting the peices together then, is how treatment can produce excellent results.

Migraine Therapy and Dr. Sullivan Featured in the Harrisburg Patriot News


Dr. Sullivan and Migraine therapy featured in the Harrisburg Patriot News

We are delighted to share the most recent news story on Dr. Sullivan and Keystone Chiropractic Neurology. The Patriot News has just released a feature article about Dr. Sullivan and new treatment options for migraine suffers. In addition to our ongoing clinical trials for migraine therapy, Dr. Sullivan also offers comprehensive treatment plans with the goal of reducing or eliminating chronic migraine headaches.

Dr. Sullivan's Migraine Therapy Article – Patriot News

Migraines strike Cindy White, 37, of Carlisle, with no warning and escalate quickly. They last anywhere from one day to an extreme of 18 and occur four to six times a month, down from a peak of 15 to 20.

That history made the mom of three an instant fan of a new migraine therapy being tested by Dr. David Sullivan, a chiropractic neurologist in Upper Allen Twp. One session with his new treatment and her full-blown migraine was gone within 12 minutes.

“I was blown away by the procedure. It was unreal,” she said, describing it as noninvasive and painless. “It was kind of relaxing. I was astounded. I called my family doctor, my mom, my husband and said you’re not going to believe this.”

Sullivan of Keystone Chiropractic Neurology said the technique involves pressure stimulation around the ear and does not involve any manipulation to the neck or head. He claims it can “eliminate a migraine in a matter of minutes without injections or drugs.”

Sullivan was guarded in releasing more specific information on the method until results from his pilot study of about 20 people are published in the first quarter of the year.

“I don’t claim that this is the cure,” he added. “This new treatment is just one tool in a vast toolbox that we have to treat headaches … but it seems to be a powerful one among many.”

Chiropractic Neurology and Migraine Headaches

Chiropractic neurologists have advanced post-graduate training as experts of the brain, spine and nervous system. Sullivan said medical neurologists mainly prescribe medications or injections, neurosurgeons use surgery to correct a condition and he practices medication-free and non-surgical methods.

Sullivan, who plans to begin a larger study th

is month, said he “stumbled onto a breakthrough” this summer while working with a migraine patient. She mentioned that her symptoms disappeared when she was near a certain piece of equipment at work. Sullivan tried to re-create that situation to get a similar effect from therapy that “we could see and measure,” he said. “It actually worked.”

“Some of these migraine [patients] come in with a raging migraine and within two to three minutes, it’s all gone,” he said of his therapy. “They’re really astonished. To me, it’s like I can’t wrap my head around it.”

White, a lifelong migraine sufferer, regularly takes a half-dozen medications, not including those she uses when she has a migraine. She hopes to use the therapy as a tool to reduce her need for medications.

“The migraines are pretty bad,” she said. “It stinks. I’ve missed kids’ softball games and activities. It’s hard to miss out on life.”

The therapy made her feel “like a whole new person. I could come home and function again,” she said. “To walk out of there and not be bothered by light and sound and go back to my everyday life with no medicine involved is the greatest thing. And, there are no side effects.”

While Sullivan hopes to have other professionals duplicate his successes in their own trials once he’s published, he is ready for the skeptics.

“I fully expect that there will be a hearty critique,” he said. “All they have to do is experience it for themselves and eliminate a migraine in a matter of minutes. If that doesn’t make them a believer, I don’t know what would.”

Helping to reduce the burden of migraine across the world

Sullivan eventually hopes use of the treatment spreads worldwide and beyond his profession.

“This therapy could be taught to many with little training. Any medical doctor, a physical therapist, a nurse can be trained across the world to perform this therapy and eliminate migraines. It takes no extra equipment, no extra expense,” he noted with excitement. “We are trying to change the world here. I’m in solo practice and can only help as many people as I can see in a day. If we can publish our results, it’s successful and spreads, we can help the whole world.”

Migraine sufferers can learn more about participating in Sullivan’s next study on his website, www.keystonechiropracticneurology.com or by calling 717-697-0589.

Exploring new ways to eliminate migraine headaches

For many people like Amy Bowers,

chronic migraines are a major interruption to life. The mother of three said when she gets a migraine headache, she is usually unable to care for her children or go to work.

“When I get them, I’m down for a few days,” she said. “I get nausea, I get blurred vision, tingling in my hands, and it’s awful.”

For many people like Amy Bowers, chronic migraines are a major interruption to life. The mother of three said when she gets a migraine headache, she is usually unable to care for her children or go to work.

“When I get them, I’m down for a few days,” she said. “I get nausea, I get blurred vision, tingling in my hands, and it’s awful.”

Bowers said she tried pretty much every thing she could think of to try to get rid of the crippling headaches.

“I was on maintenance medication, I’ve taken prescription pills, I’ve taken over-the-counter pills, I’ve tried the Mountain Dew, the caffeine, the chocolate,” she said.

Nothing seemed to help until she tried a new treatment developed by Dr. David Sullivan of the Keystone Chiropractic Neurology practice in Mechanicsburg.

“My husband drove me in and I had a hood over my head, glasses over my face, could barely walk in,” she said. “Because of what Dr. Sullivan did for me, I was able to walk out the door and go home and resume as if it was a normal day.”

So what exactly is this treatment? Dr. Sullivan couldn’t go into specific details because it is still in the development phase, but explained the therapy uses pressure to treat migraine headaches. He said it is not a cure, but can eliminate the headaches once a patient notices symptoms.

Sullivan said he came up with the therapy after a patient talked about her symptoms going away when she was near a certain machine at work.

“We decided to do some problem solving and what we ended up doing was trying a couple different types of therapies to see if we could reproduce that, and we found this and it actually worked,” Sullivan said.

Dr. Sullivan featured in the Carlisle Sentinel regarding new migraine therapy


Researching migraine, developing new treatments.

Our clinical trials regarding a new all-natural treatment for migraine headaches continues to expand. We are quickly headed toward publication, but the work is far from over. We are still

seeking participants who suffer with chronic migraine headaches in order to document the effectiveness of our new therapy.

Dr. Sullivan and article on migraine treatment

Dr. Sullivan was featured in this article, published in the Carlisle Sentinel and on cumberlink.com.

Dr. David Sullivan, the owner of Keystone Chiropractic Neurology in Upper Allen Township, will be the first to say he stumbled upon a new therapy — capable of revolutionizing the field of functional neurology — completely by accident one day while treating a patient for dizziness in his office off South Market Street.

“Medical neurology addresses the illness and treats it with drugs or surgery,” he said. “In functional neurology, we can look at the same brain and nervous system and assess its function and apply specific rehabilitation strategies to change it or make it more normal. It’s life changing work. We’ve found that people have eliminated chronic illness and are living like it never happened.”
