Drug Combinations for Sandy Springs Back Pain and Sciatica Not Effective

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. Cross Chiropractic Center works with back pain patients like you.

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.

RESEARCH SUPPORTED: CHONDROITIN SULFATE, TURMERIC AND CURCUMIN
