Drug Combinations for Lynchburg Back Pain and Sciatica Not Effective

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. 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. Palmer Chiropractic Center works with back pain sufferers like you.

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) In clinical studies, Cox® Technic has 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.
