Drug Combinations for Ashburn 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 Ashburn back pain or neck pain disappear right now? You aren’t alone! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn can relate. Pain upsets our flow. Back pain prevents many Ashburn 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, come to Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn 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

Incorporating drugs in the treatment plan may work for some back pain sufferers and not others. Pills may deliver relief for a few hours, days, weeks, months or not at all. A recent Cochrane Review, one of the most highly respected 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 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 fine. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn works with back pain patients like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates a specialized form of spinal manipulation has helped countless Ashburn back pain sufferers obtain 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 demonstrated in federally funded spinal research studies 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 longer 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 boost the relief and help our Ashburn back pain patients, Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn incorporated supplements into the Ashburn 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. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is ready to help you discover the right combination of treatment ways to decrease your back pain.
