Wouldn’t it be nice to take a
pill – or maybe better: a combination of pills! - and have your
Vancouver back pain or neck pain vanish
right now? You are not alone! Vancouver Spine Care Centre can relate.
Pain disrupts our lives. Back pain keeps many
Vancouver 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 Vancouver Spine Care Centre for relief and chiropractic
tips about how to manage it without
drugs when or if drugs are not working or are not in
your treatment plan.
NOT WELL SUPPORTED: DRUG COMBINATIONS
Having drugs in the treatment plan may work for some back pain sufferers and not others. Pills may give
relief for some 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 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 lower
with single drug therapy over a combination. (1) Have you had
a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It’s ok.
Vancouver Spine Care Centre works with back pain sufferers
RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION
Vancouver Spine Care Centre’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal
Pain Management which integrates a specialized
type of spinal manipulation has helped countless
Vancouver back pain sufferers get 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 drop
intradiscal pressures, widen the intervertebral canal area, and increase
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 happens. (5) For many back pain sufferers, 50%
relief would be most welcome. What about you?
RESEARCH SUPPORTED: CHONDROITIN SULFATE, TURMERIC AND CURCUMIN
To heighten the relief and assist
our Vancouver back pain patients, Vancouver Spine Care Centre incorporated
supplements into the Vancouver 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. Vancouver Spine Care Centre is prepared to help you discover
the right combination of treatment approaches to reduce
your back pain.
