Drug Combinations for Pflugerville 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 Pflugerville back pain or neck pain go away immediately? You are not alone! Pflugerville Wellness Center can empathize. Pain upsets our flow. Back pain keeps many Pflugerville 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 someone close to you, visit Pflugerville Wellness Center for relief and chiropractic advice about pain management without drugs when or if drugs are not doing what you need or are not in your treatment plan.

NOT CLEARLY SUPPORTED: DRUG COMBINATIONS

Incorporating drugs in the treatment plan may work for some back pain sufferers and not others. Pills may give relief for a few hours, days, weeks, months or not any. A recent 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 drug combinations for low back pain and sciatica. Additionally, the risk of adverse effects is less with single drug therapy over combined. (1) Have you experienced a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It is ok. Pflugerville Wellness Center works with back pain sufferers like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

Pflugerville Wellness Center’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which integrates a specialized form of spinal manipulation has assisted countless Pflugerville 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 demonstrated in federally funded spinal research studies to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the intervertebral canal area, and increase disc height. (3,4) In clinical studies, Cox® Technic has shown that back pain relief happens in 29 days and 12 visits. Of course, more severe disc herniations and spinal stenosis may take more time than these averages, but relief comes. (5) For many back pain sufferers, 50% relief would be most welcome. How about you?
