"Dr. Daulton is tremendous at what he does. He truly understands the body and how things work together."
I came to Dr. Daulton through the recommendation from my wife and family. After a bout of colitis, I continued to suffer with continual discomfort and pain on my left side.
I went back to the GI doctor numerous times for answers, but came out of every appointment with no answers except another "scope" or "exploratory surgery." Not for me!!
So, I went to see Dr. Daulton, and after a review of my medical history and current condition, he thought he could help.
He explained that the psoas muscle is a very important muscle to the GI tract, posture, and motility of the colon. Dr. Daulton thought maybe my psoas muscle was tight, creating the discomfort I was feeling.
After the last visit to the GI doctor, I thought, "what the heck," better chiropractic adjustments than a surgery!
Sure enough, Dr. Daulton slowly released the tension in the muscle and I feel GREAT!! Dr. Daulton is tremendous at what he does. He truly understands the body and how things work together."
"I would strongly recommend anybody to come to you..."

"Hey Dr. Ron - this is Lisa Writt, just calling to tell you my story. I've basically had a bad back since I was a kid - I had arthritis. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I was in a car accident and came out of it with a herniated disc.
I was treated for that - went through therapy, massage, and all that, and it didn't help. Then, a few years ago, I fell in my kitchen, and I'm guessing that's how I got the second herniated disc.
After that my pain was really, really bad. I went and had an EMG done and they couldn't specify which nerves were being affected, and the EMG was very, very painful.
My family doctor sent me to a surgeon, and I was told by him that my only two options were to get cortisone shots, or if that didn't work, have back surgery. He said a lot of people wind up worse with the surgery, or it doesn't help at all, and very few feel better.
So, I went to go get the cortisone shots at St. Catherine's Hospital and wound up in the waiting room for 5 hours, and during that time I spoke with a lot of the patients there waiting for their cortisone shots. The story I got from about 20 people was that sometimes they work, sometimes they don't - there's no guarantee. And, from what I've read, it damages your back more.
So, anyways, I decided not to get the shots, and I found out about your practice from my father, and the first treatment I had from you relieved the pain from the pinched nerve that I had, and it's just been getting better ever since then.
When I went to that surgeon, I felt that I was heading to the point where I was going to be in a wheelchair - that's how bad my pain was and how much it affected my everyday life.
Like I said, you got rid of that right away, and with my discs, I've had a lot of improvement. You got rid of that sciatica pain also, and that was really, really something. I've had a lot of improvement in my neck and you got rid of my headaches also. It's all good!
I would strongly recommend anybody to come to you instead of going to a surgeon."
"He's a real wonderful person, and the people in his office are very nice and very friendly..."

"Hello - this is Louise Velez, and I'm calling about Dr. Daulton. Well, I'll tell you - it's quite a story, and I hope it's not too long. I went to chiropractors before, and I didn't believe in them, until I saw Dr. Ron. I've had bad headaches, arthritis of my knees, and I've fallen down a few times, and I went to see him.
Well, after I saw what he had done for my grandson - he got hurt in an accident, and Dr. Ron took care of him real good, so I decided to see him. I thought I'd try once more, so I did, and to this day, I feel great.
Now he's taken care of me for quite a few years, and I wouldn't change him for the world. He's a real wonderful person, and the people in his office are very nice and very friendly.
There's more to it, but the main thing is that I believe in him, and he's real nice and very good. Thank you."
"Thank you Dr. Ron!"
"I am a 65-plus age female. I suffer from chronic arthritis of the spine and back. After having two hip replacement surgeries, I didn't want to experience any more surgeries due to my arthritis. But that's what my doctor recommended to relieve the back pain that I was experiencing.
Since I was undergoing Chiropractic treatments, my Chiropractor suggested lumbar decompression therapy to alleviate my back pain. After several treatments, I noticed a great improvement in my ability to sit and stand with little or no pain. I was even able to take a vacation riding in a car to several cities and over 2000 miles of riding. Lumbar decompression is the best thing that could have happened to me.
"I can feel my body simply getting stronger..."
"Chiropractic care has changed my life in so many good ways. It is something that I will always do to maintain good health and balance for my life. It is something that is definitely not a quick fix, but a fix that will last and maintain if you stick with it!!
This summer I was in a very bad car accident. The pain was almost unbearable and my mobility was so limited. I was given strong pain medication, and I am not a fan of taking these kinds of meds. I needed them, as much as I did not want to admit it, just to function.
I knew I was going to need to see Dr. Ron as soon as possible. My first couple of visits, like many of you, made me nervous as the results weren't instant, but I knew if I stuck with it the end results would be worth it.
I have been faithful since the end of July and still going strong and I can feel my body simply getting stronger. Having had this injury, I know I will have limitations, but with the care of Dr. Ron and staff I know I will be able to function and live my life the best I can."
"We've been to many chiropractors in our lives, and Dr. Ron has been the best one I have ever encountered..."

"Hi - this is Barbara Novakovich calling. I was calling because I wanted to say how well Dr. Ron Daulton, Jr. has helped me with my shoulder issues - I've had them since a car accident - and subsequent neck issues as well.
I went to a chiropractor for a year to try to resolve these issues, to no avail. I ended up having surgery, and still it was not feeling well. I met Dr. Daulton, Jr. and decided to go see him for awhile to see what he could do.
My mobility was very limited, as well as pain (certainly not as bad as before the surgery, but I still had residual pain).
I am very happy to report that within 2 weeks, the pain was completely gone and the mobility, which my orthopedic surgeon said that I would never get back, I did get back.
I've been going to Dr. Ron ever since, with any kind of problem I have. I would tell anybody to go to him, because we've been to many chiropractors in our lives, and Dr. Ron has been the best one I have ever encountered.
He's caring, listens very well, addresses every issue - I can not say enough about him. So, that is my testimonial - thank you."
"Now I can do everything I could do before (my injury), but better..."

"Hello - I'm calling in regards to Dr. Ron, and the success rate I've had with him over the past 4 years.
I was in a car accident about 4 years ago, and it was so bad that the doctors were saying that it was going to take me a year to walk again. So, Dr. Ron, with his persistence, worked on me and got me back on my feet in less than 3 months.
With his round-the-clock care (even on the days that he was off, he was taking care of me), he got me better a lot more quickly. Now I can do everything I could do before, but better.
So, I just think that Dr. Ron is really good at what he does - I know I trust him with my life. I think that Dr. Ron is an amazing doctor, and I don't think that anybody could ask for a better doctor."
"I want to thank Dr. Daulton for substantially improving my condition after just a short time..."
Click Here to hear what Marlene had to say...
"Hello - I am Dr. Marlene Krupa, a clinical psychologist, and I want to thank Dr. Daulton for substantially improving my condition after just a short time in therapy.
I had 2 car accidents approximately 20 years ago, and I've seen various specialties and experienced many medical modalities for the pain in my neck and back. I've had spasms, headaches, and numbness in limbs.
Dr. Daulton provided a holistic approach, that as a healthcare provider myself I really believe in. He provided education, exercises, therapy, and I believe that this holistic approach has really made the difference, because I'm utilizing things outside of the manipulation that is making improvements.
He's even actually more thorough than the New York chiropractor that worked on me, who also worked on the late Pope John Paul II.
I highly recommend Dr. Daulton, and am pleased to testify on his behalf.
Do not let your spine deteriorate as mine did, when there are highly effective, proven therapies that can help bring you back to healthy living. Thank you."
"After 2 weeks, my pain went away completely, and I've been pain-free since..."

"Hi - this is Michael Novakovich, and I was calling to talk about my testimonial. I had a car accident, and I was going to a doctor for almost a year.
After a year of going to a doctor and a regular chiropractor at another clinic, I wasn't any better and I decided to give Dr. Ron a try.
After 2 weeks (which, I had pain since the accident), my pain (which was a sciatica type of pain) went away completely, and I've been pain-free since."
CHRONIC JOINT PAIN
"Since coming to see Dr. Ron on a regular basis, I am able to walk without a cane, my joint stiffness has lessened, and most of all, my mental outlook regarding my chronic pain has improved."
"Good morning. I was an active mom and RN until one day my life and mobility changed. As a result of a bizarre fall (while working), I was challenged with having multiple surgeries and left with a condition called CRPS (Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome).
Since coming to see Dr. Ron on a regular basis, I am able to walk without a cane, my joint stiffness has lessened, and most of all, my mental outlook regarding my chronic pain has improved.
The holistic approach of Dr. Ron and his staff has truly enhanced my mobility and overall well being.
In addition, they offer Ionic Foot Baths, which remove many chemicals and toxins from the body that contributes to many of our health issues (especially when dealing with chronic illness).
I highly recommend the regular adjustments, ionic foot baths, massages and other services offered by this gifted and talented chiropractor, Dr. Ron Daulton and his awesome staff."
"I don't get headaches very often anymore - it's wonderful..."
"Ever since I have been coming to Dr. Ron for my neck and headaches, I don't get headaches very often anymore - it's wonderful!
I feel so much better.
He has also worked on my daughter, Seayra Goerg, and she has had nothing but good results also. Thank you for helping me and my daughter!"
"It has been an amazing turn around! All because of Dr. Daulton's care!"
"Dr. Daulton has been a lifesaver for me! I came to him in excruciating pain. I could barely move, resolving to live on muscle relaxers and pain medication to minimally function.
After a thorough review of my history and x-rays, Dr. Daulton said he could help. I couldn't believe what I was hearing!
Over the course of my treatment, I finally discontinued daily use of my muscle relaxers and pain medication. It has been an amazing turn around! All because of Dr. Daulton's care! He took the time to fully understand the problem, discuss treatment with me, and continue to assess changes in my condition.
I also understand how ongoing maintenance is the key to good health, just like my car getting an oil change. I have to take care of myself the same way.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Daulton! In fact, I have to several of my friends and colleagues. He is always professional, caring, and kind. His staff is AMAZING! They are just as FANTASTIC as Dr. Daulton!
"I no longer rely on narcotic pain meds to get me through the day, and my only regret is that I did not go see him sooner..."
"I was on an endless cycle of pain management, without any relief from the pain. My doctor at the pain clinic told me I had to start receiving injections in my spine. When I told him that I did not want to go through with the injections, he discontinued treatment.
The nerve and back pain that I was having was so severe, that I knew I could not live this way anymore.
My wife made me an appointment with Dr. Ron, but I was skeptical.
Dr. Ron put in place an intensive treatment plan for me. And, even though I live 65 miles from his office, I agreed to the treatment and drove there three times a week for over 3 months.
I can not express how thankful I am that I went to see Dr. Ron. I am now seeing him once a week, and I will gladly do this for the rest of my life.
Dr. Ron gave me my life back, simple as that.
I no longer rely on narcotic pain meds to get me through the day, and my only regret is that I did not go see him sooner. His office staff are the friendliest people you will ever encounter, and they are extremely knowledgeable. He will create a plan of care for you that explains your condition, his recommended treatment, the cost, and several other things you can do to improve your health.
Most importantly, he always asks me how I am doing, and then takes the time to answer any questions I may have. The type of care that his office provides is absolutely priceless."
"I'm actually walking, which I never would have thought I would've been able to do without the surgery..."
Click Here to hear what Joe had to say...
"Hi - my name is Joe McCarthy, and I had an accident shoveling snow and threw my back out in January of '08. I had to be taken out of the house by ambulance, hospitalized for 3 days, rehabbed for about a month and a half - everybody at that point told me that I needed surgery done on my back because my herniated disc was just so far out that they didn't see any other way of healing this thing.
Upon hearing that news, and from others that told me the same thing, I approached Dr. Daulton. I've know Dr. Daulton, Sr. for many years - and I asked him if he could do anything with it, and he said, "Joe, I don't see anything here that we can't correct - you might need surgery in your late 70's or 80's, but right now I don't believe that you need surgery. Let's do some procedures."
We did the spinal decompression with adjustments to compliment that, and here it is in June and I'm actually walking, which I never would have thought I would've been able to do without the surgery.
During that very depressing time I would go from room to room looking for a place to sit, or staying away from public gatherings because I just could not stand for more than 2 or 3 minutes at a time. I basically isolated myself, and I just want to say that, through chiropractic care with Dr. Daulton, I'm walking, and I've entered back in to being a very active person again.
I still do my stretches, and I still occasionally get adjusted. But from going from the conventional wisdom of cutting and surgery and doctors referring, to putting my faith in God and self-determination to get through this without surgery and with the talent of Dr. Daulton, he was blessed by God.
I'm not a person who wears my religion on my sleeve, but I believe that this man put me back on track, and it's now up to me to maintain my physical health.
I just wanted to leave this message as a testimonial from myself."
LOW BACK PAIN
"Dr Daulton is amazing - he has that magical touch!"
"I hurt my back lifting my 96 year old mother, who was dead weight. Chiropractic has almost stopped the pain and tingling in my buttock and my thighs.
I would recommend everyone see a chiropractor before they start taking a lot of medications or an operation.
Dr. Daulton is amazing - he has that magical touch! I have been to other chiropractors before, but I like Dr. Daulton the most by far, and his prices are reasonable for an adjustment.
Thanks again to the team for making my visits pleasant and short. I've never had to wait any length of time. All praises go out to Dr. Daulton and his staff!"
"Before I received chiropractic care, I was only able to walk the distance of two houses, but now I can walk a full block without pain, and circle the block."
"I was experiencing very bad backaches. I called Dr. Daulton because I had heard good things about how he helps people and was a nice, friendly person. So I called and when I came into the office, he did an x-ray and told me my spine was off by a great degree. That was July 30, 2009.
Before I received chiropractic care, I was only able to walk the distance of two houses, but now I can walk a full block without pain, and circle the block.
Also, I had rotator cuff surgery on my left shoulder. The doctor said that within a few months I would need it on the other shoulder, but Dr. Daulton said no, let me work with it, and so I did.
After that, the shoulders never had a problem. As a matter of fact, when I go see other specialists and they ask if I've ever had any surgeries, I tell them yes and they ask which shoulder, and I always have to say let me check (I have to look for the scar because my shoulders haven't given me any problems since I went to see Dr. Daulton).
Go to see Dr. Daulton. He is awesome!!!"
"...after only 4 treatments my pain was gone and I could walk again..."
"I had been to several doctors with my severe back pain and it generated down to my legs and also the bottom of my feet. It was so bad that the only way I could get around in the house was to crawl on my hands and knees.
When I came to Hammond Chiropractic I was in great pain and discouragement, but after only 4 treatments my pain was gone and I could put my feet on the ground and could walk again. Also, I was taking pain killers every 4 hours day and night - after seeing Dr. Daulton, I did not have to use them and have not used them since.
I highly recommend both of Hammond Chiropractic's Dr.'s Daulton for spine and lower back pain to get you feeling good again."
"I no longer have to wear a back support daily like I had been for a few months..."
"I hurt my back lifting my bike and making a quick turn with my body at the same time. The pain was instant and sharp. I thought it would go away on its own.
The pain changed over the next couple of weeks but was still persistent. At times, I could not get up out of bed without moving in certain ways. It hurt very badly to get up in the normal fashion.
I came here to Dr. Daulton's office and he helped me get back to normal. I no longer have to wear a back support daily like I had been for a few months."
LUMBAR RADICULOPATHY (NERVE PAIN)
"I'm so glad I chose Hammond Chiropractic Life Center for my treatment. I'm a customer for life."
"2 months ago I was in excruciating pain. I came across Hammond Chiropractic Life Center on Google. When I came in, I was very impressed with the professionalism of the staff. Dr. Daulton was very knowledgeable and very informative about my condition.
After the 7 weeks of treatments, I can honestly say it has been a night and day difference in my condition. I'm so glad I chose Hammond Chiropractic Life Cener for my treatments. I'm a customer for life."
"I have been a patient of Dr. Ron's for about a year and a half now and am feeling great!"
"Before coming to Hammond Chiropractic I was having terrible neck and back pain. For my job, I am consistently driving long distances on a daily basis, making my pain and symptoms worsen. The issues that I had were so extreme that it would put restrictions on my daily life, including headaches, mental clarity and even vertigo. I have been a patient of Dr. Ron's for about a year and a half now and am feeling great!
Dr. Ron started me on a treatment plan that consisted of a mix of weekly adjustments (eventually tapering down to maintenance adjustments), massage therapy, therapy exercises at home and electro-therapy. Immediately I started seeing positive results and they would go away, but after coming more regularly the positive results continued to stay longer and longer. Eventually, the results stayed permanently.
I am currently 4 months pregnant and am still going to see Dr. Ron on a weekly basis for prenatal adjustment visits. A lot of movement and changing has been going on with my body during this pregnancy, causing terrible tension headaches and sharp sciatic pain. With my regular visits with Dr. Ron, I am able to control these symptoms and make them lessen greatly in intensity.
During my last visit, Andrea and Dr. Ron were able to show me additional stretches that I'm able to do in the convenience of my own home to help me along during my pregnancy. I am confident in continuing my therapy throughout my pregnancy and am very happy with the results."
"Over the years I've visited several chiropractors, but
Dr. Ron has helped me the most..."
"Dr. Ron introduced me to the world of chiropractic care years ago. I suffered neck and upper back pain from two car accidents, and didn't really know if or how chiropractic care could help me.
After my first visit with Dr. Ron I felt relief. It was an amazing feeling! I'm only sorry I didn't give chiropractic care a chance sooner!
I continued with a wellness plan with Dr. Ron and over a short period of time my symptoms subsided and I began living a regular life again, pain-free.
My work had taken me out of the area, which forced me to find another chiropractor in my new city, and I continued on with my chiropractic care.
I recently had a visit with Dr. Ron, which was related to one of my lower back discs, and was happy to learn that he was able to correct my problem naturally, without surgery! Within minutes after taking an x-ray, Dr. Ron immediately saw the root of my discomfort, and again, I was overwhelmed with appreciation that I would soon be on the road to recovery and a pain-free existence again.
I must say, over the years I've visited several chiropractors, but Dr. Ron has helped me the most, and also has the most advice and reasonable methods to help you return to pain-free living.
I highly recommend Dr. Ron's office and his fantastic staff. When you walk into the office, you are met with a friendly hello from the assistants at the front desk. Then you see Dr. Ron who is always genuinely happy, and finally to the friendly administrator upon checkout who completes your transaction and schedules your next visit.
If I ever return to live in the NWI area, Dr. Ron and his team will be my #1 choice for my chiropractic care."
"I would never go to another chiropractor, you are the best!"
"I would never go to another chiropractor, you are the best! Can't get any better!
I remember one weekend I couldn't move my neck and shoulder. You opened your office and had me come in to be adjusted. It was amazing. I could move again!
Thank you for everything you've done for me!"
"I just wanted to thank you very much for what you do - it's amazing to me..."
Click Here to hear what Kim had to say...
"Hi Dr. Ron - I wanted to call and let you know about an exciting story for me. A couple of years ago, I had pulled my upper back out (the top rib area), and I went through physical therapy. It was six weeks, and it still never got better.
I had a similar incident just 2 weeks ago, and I came to you the same day that it happened. Once I got in, the next day - the next day - I was amazed! The next day it was fine - it was still a little tender, but it was so much better. And, I have no problems with it today, which is 2 weeks later (instead of 6 weeks later, like in physical therapy).
So, I just wanted to thank you very much for what you do - it's amazing to me, considering I had gone through physical therapy in other incidences. Thank you so much for what you do - God bless."
"I highly recommend people that are having back problems or who have had problems in the past to come to Dr. Daulton's office for chiropractic care."
"I came to Dr. Daulton's office in pain, and my pain was a constant 9/10 on a scale of one through ten. I was skeptical that my pain would go away any time soon, because I had been through this ordeal of pain before. It took a long time for me to get better in the past, and I felt that the same thing was going to happen to me again.
Well, to my surprise, my pain level started being reduced as I was getting the therapy at Dr. Daulton's office. I became confident that I would feel better in months versus the nearly 15 - 18 months like it happened in the past.
I highly recommend people that are having back problems or who have had problems in the past to come to Dr. Daulton's office for chiropractic care. Although I am feeling better and I am not walking with a cane anymore, I still go to Dr. Daulton's office for chiropractic care. It has helped me and if you give it time and take care of your body better along with eating better, I believe that it will help you as well."
"After my first adjustment, I felt immediate relief. By the end of my prescribed course of treatment I'm as good as new..."
"I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Daulton and his staff! I went in for a pinched nerve in my shoulder that was causing pain, numbness and tingling in my whole arm down to my fingers. After my first adjustment, I felt immediate relief. By the end of my prescribed course of treatment I'm as good as new.
Everyone in the office is so warm and kind, it doesn't even feel like a trip to the doctor. I definitely recommend paying them a visit."
"Without Dr. Ron's help, I would not be able to exercise the way I would like to and stand all day for work..."
"I have been getting treated by Dr. Ron for the past 12 years. He has made a tremendous difference in my day to day life and my ability to play sports when I was younger.
I was a former volleyball player, and without the help of Dr. Ron correcting issues with my alignment, I would have sat out and not been able to play for an extended period of time.
He has helped me with Achilles Tendonitis, low back pain, shoulder mobility, jammed thumbs, as well as many other things.
I recommend chiropractic care by Dr. Ron to all of my family members and friends that have issues. I continue to see him for maintenance work on my lower back, and without his help, I would not be able to exercise the way I would like to and be able to stand all day for work."
TMJ (JAW) PAIN
"I would strongly recommend him as a chiropractor..."
"Dr. Ron has been helping my family and me for many years now. He always works diligently to make sure we maintain proper alignment.
My TMJ often flares up when I am stressed. One time the pain was so bad that he adjusted my jaw every day, sometimes twice a day to aid my healing. I couldn't believe how well it worked.
This was many years ago now, but I still go to him once a week for maintenance, and every week he checks my jaw to make sure it's properly aligned.
I've also had issues associated with neck pain, and he's helped with that problem as well.
Dr. Ron always goes above and beyond and we always feel better after our appointments with him. I would strongly recommend him as a chiropractor."
