Drug Combinations for Fort Wayne Back Pain and Sciatica Not Effective

How great it would be to take a pill – or even better: a combination of pills! - and have your Fort Wayne back pain or neck pain go away right now? You aren’t alone! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic can relate. Pain upsets our flow. Back pain prevents many Fort Wayne back pain sufferers from working and from playing and from doing activities of daily living that must be done (walking, showering, cooking, cleaning, dressing, etc.). When back pain affects you or a loved one or friend, visit Aaron Chiropractic Clinic for relief and chiropractic advice about how to manage it without drugs when or if drugs are not doing what you need or are not in your treatment plan.


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 any. A recent 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 lack of studies and overall low quality of evidence, that backs drug combinations for low back pain and sciatica. Additionally, the risk of adverse effects is lower with single drug therapy over a combination. (1) Have you experienced a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It’s fine. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic works with back pain patients like you.


Aaron Chiropractic Clinic’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates a specific form of spinal manipulation has assisted countless Fort Wayne back pain sufferers realize 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 shown that back pain relief happens 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?        


To boost the relief and assist our Fort Wayne back pain patients, Aaron Chiropractic Clinic incorporated supplements into the Fort Wayne 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. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is prepared to help you discover the right combination of treatment approaches to ease your back pain.
