Elk River Chiropractor : Dr. Sandy Rebrovich

“When I was in undergraduate school, I began having these one-sided headaches.”

Meet Elk River Chiropractor, Dr. Sandy Rebrovich

They got to be so frequent that I was having about 1-2 per week. I would often feel nauseous and sometimes vomit. To deal with them, I would climb into bed in a dark room and try to sleep it off. They really interfered with my studying and my social life. So, I started on the medical path to treat these headaches. I had my eyes examined and my vision was fine. I went to an EENT thinking it was sinus or allergy related; they couldn’t find a cause.

One Medication After Another

I ended up at a headache clinic in Boston where I began a series of drug therapies. One medication caused me to gain about ten pounds, with no change in the headaches. I tried breathing oxygen from a mask and oxygen tank when I felt a headache coming on. Not only did that not help my headaches, it wasn’t very cool wheeling an oxygen tank around the dorm. The final straw was to try Lithium. But, I remember the words the doctor said when he suggested it. “We’ll have to draw blood periodically to make sure you’re in the therapeutic window, because not enough won’t do anything and too much could kill you.” I knew then this was not the right path for me. Although the Imitrex injection I was taking when I got a headache was effective at eliminating it, I was concerned about the long term effects of this drug.

The Chiropractor Down the Street

My pharmacist then suggested that I try the chiropractor down the street. No one in my immediate family had ever been to a chiropractor, but we gave it a try. After my first adjustment with her, I went three weeks without a headache! I couldn’t believe it. It was then that I began pursuing more information about what it took to become a chiropractor.

Today, I rarely have a headache. I have found that the combination of chiropractic adjustments, diet, massage and exercise keep me headache free!

I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Psychology from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York and my Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Northwestern College of Chiropractic. I love working with pregnant women, children and families.
