Drug Combinations for Montreal 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 Montreal back pain or neck pain vanish right now? You are not alone! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic can relate. Pain upsets our lives. Back pain keeps many Montreal 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 someone close to you, come to Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic for relief and chiropractic advice about pain management 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 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 regarded 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 combining drugs for low back pain and sciatica. Further, the risk of adverse effects is less with single drug therapy over combined. (1) Have you had a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It is ok. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic works with back pain patients like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which integrates a specialized type of spinal manipulation has assisted countless Montreal back pain sufferers find 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 been shown 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 happens 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. How about you?        

RESEARCH SUPPORTED: CHONDROITIN SULFATE, TURMERIC AND CURCUMIN

To heighten the relief and assist our Montreal back pain patients, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic integrates supplements into the Montreal 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 come in handy in the short-term as well as long term. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is prepared to help you find the right combination of treatment approaches to ease your back pain.
