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.

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?
