Drug Combinations for San Jose 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 San Jose back pain or neck pain disappear immediately? You aren’t alone! Chiropractic Solutions can understand. Pain upsets our lives. Back pain prevents many San Jose 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, visit Chiropractic Solutions for relief and chiropractic advice regarding 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

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 recent Cochrane Review, one of the most highly respected medical review systems in the world, reported that a drug combination, though may be 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 backs combining drugs for low back pain and sciatica. Further, 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. Chiropractic Solutions cares for back pain sufferers like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

Chiropractic Solutions’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates a specialized form of spinal manipulation has helped countless San Jose 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 improve disc height. (3,4) Clinical studies about Cox® Technic have revealed that back pain relief happens 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. How about you?        

RESEARCH SUPPORTED: CHONDROITIN SULFATE, TURMERIC AND CURCUMIN

To heighten the relief and help our San Jose back pain patients, Chiropractic Solutions incorporated supplements into the San Jose 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 come in handy in the short-term as well as long term. Chiropractic Solutions is prepared to help you find the right combination of treatment approaches to decrease your back pain.
