Drug Combinations for Millville 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 Millville back pain or neck pain go away immediately? You aren’t alone! Wilson Family Chiropractic can understand. Pain upsets our flow. Back pain keeps many Millville 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 a loved one or friend, visit Wilson Family Chiropractic for relief and chiropractic tips regarding pain management 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 a few hours, days, weeks, months or not any. A new Cochrane Review, one of the most highly regarded medical review systems in the world, reported 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 supports drug combinations for low back pain and sciatica. Additionally, 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. Wilson Family Chiropractic cares for back pain patients like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

Wilson Family Chiropractic’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which integrates a specialized type of spinal manipulation has helped countless Millville back pain sufferers realize 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 drop intradiscal pressures, widen the intervertebral canal area, and increase disc height. (3,4) In clinical studies, Cox® Technic has revealed that back pain relief comes 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. What about you?        

RESEARCH SUPPORTED: CHONDROITIN SULFATE, TURMERIC AND CURCUMIN

To heighten the relief and help our Millville back pain patients, Wilson Family Chiropractic integrates supplements into the Millville 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 come in handy in the short-term as well as long term. Wilson Family Chiropractic is prepared to help you discover the right combination of treatment approaches to ease your back pain.
