Drug Combinations for Buffalo, NY Back Pain and Sciatica Not Effective

Wouldn’t it be nice to take a pill – or maybe better: a combination of pills! - and have your Buffalo, NY back pain or neck pain vanish right now? You are not alone! The Novelli Wellness Center can understand. Pain disrupts our lives. Back pain keeps many Buffalo, NY 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, come to The Novelli Wellness Center 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 CLEARLY SUPPORTED: DRUG COMBINATIONS

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 at all. 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 supports combining drugs for low back pain and sciatica. Further, 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 fine. The Novelli Wellness Center works with back pain patients like you.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION

The Novelli Wellness Center’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which integrates a specialized type of spinal manipulation has helped countless Buffalo, NY back pain sufferers get relief of their back pain. 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 been shown 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 happens 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?        

RESEARCH SUPPORTED: CHONDROITIN SULFATE, TURMERIC AND CURCUMIN

To enhance the relief and assist our Buffalo, NY back pain patients, The Novelli Wellness Center incorporated supplements into the Buffalo, NY 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. The Novelli Wellness Center is ready to help you discover the right combination of treatment approaches to ease your back pain.
