How great it would be to take a
pill – or even better: a combination of pills! - and have your
Lynchburg back pain or neck pain go away
right now? You aren’t alone! Palmer Chiropractic Center can relate.
Pain upsets our lives. Back pain keeps many
Lynchburg 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 affects you or someone
close to you, come to Palmer Chiropractic Center for relief and chiropractic
advice regarding pain management 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 some hours, days, weeks, months or not at all.
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 backs drug combinations for low back
pain and sciatica. Further, 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.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION
Palmer Chiropractic Center’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal
Pain Management which incorporates a specialized
form of spinal manipulation has helped countless
Lynchburg back pain sufferers find relief of their back pain. 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 been
shown in federally funded spinal research studies to drop
intradiscal pressures, widen the intervertebral canal area, and increase
disc height. (3,4) Clinical studies regarding Cox® Technic have shown 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 enhance the relief and assist
our Lynchburg back pain patients, Palmer Chiropractic Center integrates
supplements into the Lynchburg 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. Palmer Chiropractic Center is prepared to help you find
the right combination of treatment ways to ease
your back pain.
