How great it would be to take a pill – or even better: a combination of pills! - and have your Easley back pain or neck pain fade away right now? You aren’t alone! Young Chiropractic can understand. Pain upsets our flow. Back pain keeps many Easley 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 a loved one or friend, visit Young Chiropractic for relief and chiropractic tips regarding pain management without drugs when or if drugs are not working or are not in your treatment plan.
NOT CLEARLY SUPPORTED: DRUG COMBINATIONS
Having 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 recent Cochrane Review, one of the most highly regarded medical review systems in the world, stated 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 lack of studies and overall low quality of evidence, that supports drug combinations 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 fine. Young Chiropractic works with back pain sufferers like you.
RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION
Young Chiropractic’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates a specific form of spinal manipulation has assisted countless Easley 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 been shown in federally funded spinal research projects to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the intervertebral canal area, and improve disc height. (3,4) In clinical studies, Cox® Technic has revealed 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. How about you?
