Drug Combinations for New Roads Back Pain and Sciatica Not Effective

How great it would be to take a pill – or maybe better: a combination of pills! - and have your New Roads back pain or neck pain fade away immediately? You aren’t alone! New Roads Chiropractic Center can understand. Pain disrupts our lives. Back pain prevents many New Roads back pain sufferers from working and from playing and from doing activities of daily living that must be done (dressing, cooking, walking, doing laundry, etc.). When back pain bothers you or someone close to you, visit New Roads Chiropractic Center for relief and chiropractic tips regarding pain management without drugs when or if drugs are not doing what you need or are not in your treatment plan.

NOT CLEARLY SUPPORTED: DRUG COMBINATIONS

Incorporating drugs in the treatment plan may be successful for some back pain sufferers and not others. Pills may deliver relief for a few hours, days, weeks, months or not any. A new Cochrane Review, one of the most highly respected medical review systems in the world, reported that a drug combination, though may be 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 supports combining drugs for low back pain and sciatica. Further, the risk of adverse effects is less with single drug therapy over a combination. (1) Have you experienced a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It’s ok. New Roads Chiropractic Center cares for back pain patients like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

New Roads Chiropractic Center’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which integrates a specialized form of spinal manipulation has assisted countless New Roads back pain sufferers get back pain relief. 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 demonstrated in federally funded spinal research studies to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the intervertebral canal area, and increase disc height. (3,4) In clinical studies, Cox® Technic has revealed that back pain relief happens in 29 days and 12 visits. Of course, more severe disc herniations and spinal stenosis may take longer than these averages, but relief happens. (5) For many back pain sufferers, 50% relief would be most welcome. How about you?        

RESEARCH SUPPORTED: CHONDROITIN SULFATE, TURMERIC AND CURCUMIN
