Drug Combinations for West Palm Beach Back Pain and Sciatica Not Effective

Wouldn’t it be nice to take a pill – or even better: a combination of pills! - and have your West Palm Beach back pain or neck pain disappear immediately? You are not alone! Chiropractic Care can empathize. Pain disrupts our lives. Back pain keeps many West Palm Beach back pain sufferers from working and from playing and from doing activities of daily living that must be done (walking, showering, cooking, cleaning, dressing, etc.). When back pain affects you or someone close to you, come to Chiropractic Care for relief and chiropractic advice regarding how to manage it without drugs when or if drugs are not doing what you need or are not in your treatment plan.

NOT CLEARLY SUPPORTED: DRUG COMBINATIONS

Having drugs in the treatment plan may be successful for some back pain sufferers and not others. Pills may give relief for a few hours, days, weeks, months or not at all. A recent Cochrane Review, one of the most highly respected medical review systems in the world, stated that a drug combination, though possibly better for more pain relief, for low back pain and sciatica is not supported. There is no clear evidence, as a matter of fact there is a shortage of studies and overall low quality of evidence, that backs combining drugs for low back pain and sciatica. Further, the risk of adverse effects is lower with single drug therapy over combined. (1) Have you had a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It’s ok. Chiropractic Care works with back pain patients like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

Chiropractic Care’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which integrates a specialized form of spinal manipulation has assisted countless West Palm Beach back pain sufferers realize relief of their back pain. Spinal manipulation is advocated as first line treatment of back pain by the American College of Physicians and the American Board of Family Physicians. (2) Cox® Technic has been shown in federally funded spinal research studies to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the intervertebral canal area, and improve disc height. (3,4) In clinical studies, Cox® Technic has shown that back pain relief comes in 29 days and 12 visits. Of course, more severe disc herniations and spinal stenosis may take more time than these averages, but relief happens. (5) For many back pain sufferers, 50% relief would be most welcome. What about you?        

RESEARCH SUPPORTED: CHONDROITIN SULFATE, TURMERIC AND CURCUMIN
