Drug Combinations for Augusta Back Pain and Sciatica Not Effective

April 28, 2020

How great it would be to take a pill – or even better: a combination of pills! - and have your Augusta back pain or neck pain fade away immediately? You are not alone! Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic can understand. Pain upsets our lives. Back pain keeps many Augusta 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 a loved one or friend, visit Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic 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.


Incorporating 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 combined. (1) Have you had a let-down from prescribed medications for your back pain? It is fine. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic cares for back pain sufferers like you.


Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates a specialized type of spinal manipulation has helped countless Augusta 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 demonstrated in federally funded spinal research studies to reduce intradiscal pressures, widen the intervertebral canal area, and improve 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 more time than these averages, but relief comes. (5) For many back pain sufferers, 50% relief would be most welcome. How about you?        


To boost the relief and help our Augusta back pain patients, Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic integrates supplements into the Augusta 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. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is prepared to help you find the right combination of treatment approaches to decrease your back pain.
