Drug Combinations for Williamson 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 Williamson back pain or neck pain vanish right now? You aren’t alone! Apple Country Chiropractic can understand. Pain disrupts our flow. Back pain prevents many Williamson 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, come to Apple Country Chiropractic for relief and chiropractic advice regarding 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 work for some back pain sufferers and not others. Pills may give 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, 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 combining drugs for low back pain and sciatica. Further, the risk of adverse effects is less with single drug therapy over combined. (1) Have you had a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It is ok. Apple Country Chiropractic cares for back pain sufferers like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

Apple Country Chiropractic’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates a specialized type of spinal manipulation has assisted countless Williamson back pain sufferers get 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 been shown in federally funded spinal research studies to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the intervertebral canal area, and improve 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.
