Drug Combinations for Baton Rouge Back Pain and Sciatica Not Effective

Wouldn’t it be nice to take a pill – or maybe better: a combination of pills! - and have your Baton Rouge back pain or neck pain disappear right now? You aren’t alone! Spine & Sports Rehab Center can empathize. Pain disrupts our flow. Back pain prevents many Baton Rouge 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 bothers you or a loved one or friend, come to Spine & Sports Rehab Center for relief and chiropractic tips regarding 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

Incorporating drugs in the treatment plan may work for some back pain sufferers and not others. Pills may deliver relief for some hours, days, weeks, months or not at all. A new Cochrane Review, one of the most highly regarded 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 backs combining drugs for low back pain and sciatica. Further, the risk of adverse effects is less with single drug therapy over a combination. (1) Have you experienced a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It is ok. Spine & Sports Rehab Center works with back pain sufferers like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

Spine & Sports Rehab Center’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which integrates a specific type of spinal manipulation has helped countless Baton Rouge back pain sufferers find back pain relief. 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 projects to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the intervertebral canal area, and improve disc height. (3,4) In clinical studies, Cox® Technic has revealed that back pain relief comes 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?        

RESEARCH SUPPORTED: CHONDROITIN SULFATE, TURMERIC AND CURCUMIN

To heighten the relief and help our Baton Rouge back pain patients, Spine & Sports Rehab Center incorporated supplements into the Baton Rouge 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. Spine & Sports Rehab Center is prepared to help you discover the right combination of treatment approaches to decrease your back pain.
