Drug Combinations for Colorado Springs 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 Colorado Springs back pain or neck pain vanish right now? You aren’t alone! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR can relate. Pain upsets our lives. Back pain prevents many Colorado Springs 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 a loved one or friend, visit The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR for relief and chiropractic advice about how to manage it without drugs when or if drugs are not working or are not in your treatment plan.

NOT WELL SUPPORTED: DRUG COMBINATIONS

Having drugs in the treatment plan may be successful for some back pain sufferers and not others. Pills may deliver relief for some hours, days, weeks, months or not any. A new Cochrane Review, one of the most highly respected medical review systems in the world, stated 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 a combination. (1) Have you experienced a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It’s ok. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR works with back pain sufferers like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates a specific form of spinal manipulation has assisted countless Colorado Springs back pain sufferers get 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 projects 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 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
