Drug Combinations for Fort Wayne Back Pain and Sciatica Not Effective

April 28, 2020

Wouldn’t it be nice to take a pill – or maybe better: a combination of pills! - and have your Fort Wayne back pain or neck pain disappear immediately? You aren’t alone! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc can understand. Pain disrupts our lives. Back pain keeps many Fort Wayne 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 affects you or someone close to you, come to Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc for relief and chiropractic tips regarding pain management without drugs when or if drugs are not doing what you need or are not in your treatment plan.


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 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 less with single drug therapy over combined. (1) Have you experienced a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It is fine. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc works with back pain patients like you.


Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which integrates a specialized form of spinal manipulation has assisted countless Fort Wayne back pain sufferers find relief of their back pain. 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 demonstrated in federally funded spinal research studies to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the intervertebral canal area, and improve disc height. (3,4) Clinical studies about Cox® Technic have 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?        


To enhance the relief and help our Fort Wayne back pain patients, Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc integrates supplements into the Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plan. Natural substances like spinal disc-supporting chondroitin sulfate – shown to have “genuine anti-inflammatory properties (6) - and back pain-relieving turmeric and curcumin are helpful in the short-term as well as long term. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is ready to help you find the right combination of treatment ways to ease your back pain.
