HOLLISTON, Mass., May 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Michael J. Krupa's chiropractic practice, the Holliston Spine & Sports Center, is helping area residents discover a powerful treatment option for headaches and migraines. Many headache sufferers find standard medical care providers stumped as to the cause and proper treatment for their headaches. What most patients don't know, Dr. Krupa claims, is that a chiropractor can often cure what other doctors dismiss as untraceable or cover up with pain medicine.
For many, headaches have become accepted as a part of modern life: unpleasant, but here to stay. Most headache sufferers simply pop an aspirin and try to get on with their day. Those who suffer more severe pain may eventually give in and go to a doctor, but even trained medical experts are often at a loss. Headaches are the common cold of chronic pain. Almost everyone gets them from time to time, and the medical community has yet to find a consistently effective solution. The best many doctors can do is to prescribe some pain medicine for a short-term solution and hope the headaches go away in time.
For over 20 years, Dr. Krupa's office has been offering a different approach, one that focuses on the root causes of pain in the body. "A lot of people don't understand what a chiropractor actually does," Dr. Krupa said. While the common approach merely focuses on pain management, he explains, chiropractic treatments focus on the spinal column, which carries pain signals to the brain. Trauma or bad posture can apply unnatural stresses to the spinal column, leading the body to send distress signals that we experience as headaches. "Taking a pain reliever is just covering up the distress signal," explains Dr. Krupa. "It's like ignoring an SOS from your body." Instead of muffling the signals, he continues, we should help the body get back to normal.
Dr. Krupa uses a variety of state-of-the-art sports medicine and chiropractic techniques to realign patients' bodies and relieve the unnatural stresses that lie at the root of many migraine and headache sufferers' symptoms. Many patients experience relief within the first few visits, and long-term treatment can help train the body back into the proper shape and posture, alleviating the causes of chronic pain.
Holliston Spine & Sports Center wants patients to know about this less-known approach to treatment. "We want everyone who deals with headaches to benefit from what chiropractic care can do for them," said Dr. Krupa.
