Drug Combinations for St. Francisville 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 St. Francisville back pain or neck pain vanish right now? You are not alone! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville can empathize. Pain disrupts our flow. Back pain prevents many St. Francisville 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 bothers you or someone close to you, visit Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville for relief and chiropractic advice regarding how to manage it without drugs when or if drugs are not working or are not in your treatment plan.

NOT CLEARLY SUPPORTED: DRUG COMBINATIONS

Incorporating drugs in the treatment plan may work for some back pain sufferers and not others. Pills may deliver relief for some 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 lack of studies and overall low quality of evidence, that backs combining drugs for low back pain and sciatica. Additionally, the risk of adverse effects is less with single drug therapy over a combination. (1) Have you had a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It’s fine. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville cares for back pain patients like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates a specialized form of spinal manipulation has helped countless St. Francisville back pain sufferers find back pain relief. Spinal manipulation is recommended as first line treatment of back pain by the American College of Physicians and the American Board of Family Physicians. (2) Cox® Technic has demonstrated in federally funded spinal research studies to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the intervertebral canal area, and improve disc height. (3,4) Clinical studies about Cox® Technic have revealed that back pain relief happens in 29 days and 12 visits. Of course, more severe disc herniations and spinal stenosis may take more time than these averages, but relief comes. (5) For many back pain sufferers, 50% relief would be most welcome. What about you?        

RESEARCH SUPPORTED: CHONDROITIN SULFATE, TURMERIC AND CURCUMIN
