How great it would be to take a
pill – or maybe better: a combination of pills! - and have your
McHenry back pain or neck pain disappear
right now? You are not alone! Spengel Chiropractic can understand.
Pain disrupts our flow. Back pain keeps many
McHenry 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 bothers you or a loved one or friend, visit Spengel Chiropractic for relief and chiropractic
advice regarding 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 give
relief for a few hours, days, weeks, months or not any.
A recent Cochrane Review, one of the most highly respected
medical review systems in the world, stated 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. Additionally, the risk of adverse effects is less
with single drug therapy over a combination. (1) Have you experienced
a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It is ok.
Spengel Chiropractic cares for back pain sufferers
RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION
Spengel Chiropractic’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal
Pain Management which integrates a specialized
type of spinal manipulation has assisted countless
McHenry back pain sufferers obtain relief of their back pain. 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. How about you?
RESEARCH SUPPORTED: CHONDROITIN SULFATE, TURMERIC AND CURCUMIN
