How great it would be to take a
pill – or maybe better: a combination of pills! - and have your
Largo back pain or neck pain vanish
immediately? You aren’t alone! Hollstrom & Associates Inc can empathize.
Pain upsets our lives. Back pain prevents many
Largo 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, visit Hollstrom & Associates Inc 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 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 at all.
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 shortage of studies and overall low quality of evidence,
that supports drug combinations for low back
pain and sciatica. Further, 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.
Hollstrom & Associates Inc cares for back pain sufferers
RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION
Hollstrom & Associates Inc’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal
Pain Management which incorporates a specialized
type of spinal manipulation has assisted countless
Largo 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 improve
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 more time than these
averages, but relief comes. (5) For many back pain sufferers, 50%
relief would be most welcome. How about you?
