Drug Combinations for Pensacola Back Pain and Sciatica Not Effective

Wouldn’t it be nice to take a pill – or even better: a combination of pills! - and have your Pensacola back pain or neck pain go away right now? You aren’t alone! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center can relate. Pain upsets our lives. Back pain prevents many Pensacola 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 Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center 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

Incorporating 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 at all. 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 shortage of studies and overall low quality of evidence, that supports combining drugs for low back pain and sciatica. Additionally, the risk of adverse effects is lower with single drug therapy over a combination. (1) Have you had a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It is fine. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center works with back pain patients like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which integrates a specialized form of spinal manipulation has assisted countless Pensacola back pain sufferers get relief of their back pain. 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 increase disc height. (3,4) Clinical studies regarding Cox® Technic have 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 comes. (5) For many back pain sufferers, 50% relief would be most welcome.
