Drug Combinations for Tonawanda Back Pain and Sciatica Not Effective

Wouldn’t it be nice to take a pill – or maybe better: a combination of pills! - and have your Tonawanda back pain or neck pain fade away right now? You are not alone! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation can relate. Pain upsets our lives. Back pain prevents many Tonawanda 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 affects you or a loved one or friend, visit Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation for relief and chiropractic tips about how to manage it without drugs when or if drugs are not doing what you need or are not in your treatment plan.

NOT WELL 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 at all. A recent 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 backs drug combinations for low back pain and sciatica. Additionally, the risk of adverse effects is lower with single drug therapy over a combination. (1) Have you experienced a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It is ok. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation works with back pain sufferers like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates a specific type of spinal manipulation has helped countless Tonawanda back pain sufferers get 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 projects to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the intervertebral canal area, and improve disc height. (3,4) Clinical studies regarding Cox® Technic have shown 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 comes. (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 Tonawanda back pain patients, Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation incorporated supplements into the Tonawanda 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. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is prepared to help you discover the right combination of treatment approaches to ease your back pain.
