Drug Combinations for Paramus 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 Paramus back pain or neck pain go away right now? You are not alone! Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center can empathize. Pain disrupts our flow. Back pain prevents many Paramus 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, visit Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center for relief and chiropractic advice about how to manage it without drugs when or if drugs are not working or are not in your treatment plan.

NOT CLEARLY SUPPORTED: DRUG COMBINATIONS

Incorporating drugs in the treatment plan may be successful for some back pain sufferers and not others. Pills may deliver relief for some hours, days, weeks, months or not any. A recent Cochrane Review, one of the most highly respected medical review systems in the world, reported that a drug combination, though may be 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. Additionally, 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’s fine. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center works with back pain sufferers like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates a specialized form of spinal manipulation has assisted countless Paramus back pain sufferers realize back pain relief. Spinal manipulation is recommended 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 increase disc height. (3,4) In clinical studies, Cox® Technic has shown 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.

RESEARCH SUPPORTED: CHONDROITIN SULFATE, TURMERIC AND CURCUMIN

To boost the relief and assist our Paramus back pain patients, Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center incorporated supplements into the Paramus chiropractic treatment plan.
