How great it would be to take a
pill – or maybe better: a combination of pills! - and have your
Sandy Springs back pain or neck pain fade away
immediately? You are not alone! Cross Chiropractic Center can understand.
Pain upsets our lives. Back pain prevents many
Sandy Springs 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 a loved one or friend, come to Cross Chiropractic Center for relief and chiropractic
tips 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 work for some back pain sufferers and not others. Pills may give
relief for some hours, days, weeks, months or not at all.
A new Cochrane Review, one of the most highly respected
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 supports 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.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION
Cross Chiropractic Center’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal
Pain Management which integrates a specialized
form of spinal manipulation has assisted countless
Sandy Springs back pain sufferers realize 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 been
shown in federally funded spinal research studies to drop
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. What about you?
RESEARCH SUPPORTED: CHONDROITIN SULFATE, TURMERIC AND CURCUMIN
To heighten the relief and assist
our Sandy Springs back pain patients, Cross Chiropractic Center incorporated
supplements into the Sandy Springs 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. Cross Chiropractic Center is ready to help you discover
the right combination of treatment ways to ease
your back pain.
