Drug Combinations for Auburn 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 Auburn back pain or neck pain fade away right now? You are not alone! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. can understand. Pain upsets our flow. Back pain prevents many Auburn 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 someone close to you, come to Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. for relief and chiropractic advice regarding 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

Having drugs in the treatment plan may work for some back pain sufferers and not others. Pills may give 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, stated 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 backs drug combinations for low back pain and sciatica. Further, the risk of adverse effects is less with single drug therapy over a combination. (1) Have you had a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It is fine. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. works with back pain sufferers like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates a specific type of spinal manipulation has assisted countless Auburn back pain sufferers obtain 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.

(3,4) In clinical studies, Cox® Technic has shown that back pain relief comes in 29 days and 12 visits.
