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.

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
To enhance the relief and assist
our St. Francisville back pain patients, Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville incorporated
supplements into the St. Francisville chiropractic treatment plan. Natural
substances like spinal disc-supporting chondroitin sulfate – shown to have “genuine
anti-inflammatory properties (6) - and back pain-relieving turmeric and
curcumin are helpful in the short-term
as well as long term. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is prepared to help you discover
the right combination of treatment ways to decrease
your back pain.
