Drug Combinations for Fort Wayne Back Pain and Sciatica Not Effective

How great it would be to take a pill – or even better: a combination of pills! - and have your Fort Wayne back pain or neck pain vanish immediately? You aren’t alone! Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC can empathize. 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 (walking, showering, cooking, cleaning, dressing, etc.). When back pain bothers you or someone close to you, visit Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC for relief and chiropractic tips regarding pain management without drugs when or if drugs are not working 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 a few hours, days, weeks, months or not any. A new Cochrane Review, one of the most highly regarded medical review systems in the world, stated 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 backs drug combinations for low back pain and sciatica. Further, the risk of adverse effects is less with single drug therapy over combined. (1) Have you had a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It’s ok. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC cares for back pain sufferers like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

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 obtain back pain relief. 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 increase disc height. (3,4) Clinical studies about 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 longer than these averages, but relief happens. (5) For many back pain sufferers, 50% relief would be most welcome.
