Drug Combinations for Toronto 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 Toronto back pain or neck pain go away immediately? You are not alone! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre can empathize. Pain upsets our flow. Back pain keeps many Toronto 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 bothers you or someone close to you, visit Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre for relief and chiropractic advice regarding pain management without drugs when or if drugs are not working or are not in your treatment plan.


Having drugs in the treatment plan may be successful for some back pain sufferers and not others. Pills may give relief for some hours, days, weeks, months or not any. A new Cochrane Review, one of the most highly respected 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’s ok. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre works with back pain sufferers like you.


Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management which incorporates a specific type of spinal manipulation has assisted countless Toronto back pain sufferers realize 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 projects 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 longer than these averages, but relief comes. (5) For many back pain sufferers, 50% relief would be most welcome. How about you?
