Drug Combinations for Manchester 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 Manchester back pain or neck pain fade away right now? You aren’t alone! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries can empathize. Pain upsets our flow. Back pain prevents many Manchester 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 a loved one or friend, visit Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries for relief and chiropractic advice about how to manage it without drugs when or if drugs are not doing what you need or are not in your treatment plan.

NOT WELL SUPPORTED: DRUG COMBINATIONS

Having 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 any. A new Cochrane Review, one of the most highly regarded 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 supports drug combinations for low back pain and sciatica. Additionally, the risk of adverse effects is less with single drug therapy over a combination. (1) Have you had a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It is fine. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries works with back pain sufferers like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which integrates a specialized type of spinal manipulation has assisted countless Manchester back pain sufferers find 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 demonstrated 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 shown that back pain relief comes in 29 days and 12 visits. Of course, more severe disc herniations and spinal stenosis may take more time than these averages, but relief happens. (5) For many back pain sufferers, 50% relief would be most welcome.
