How great it would be 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! Disc Centers Of America 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 Disc Centers Of America 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.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION
Disc Centers Of America’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, Disc Centers Of America 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. Disc Centers Of America is ready to help you discover
the right combination of treatment approaches to ease
your back pain.
