immediately? You are not alone! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa can understand.

West Des Moines 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 a loved one or friend, visit Executive Chiropractic of Iowa for relief and chiropractic
tips about how to manage it without
drugs when or if drugs are not working or are not in
your treatment plan.
NOT CLEARLY SUPPORTED: DRUG COMBINATIONS
Incorporating drugs in the treatment plan may be
successful for some back pain sufferers and not others. Pills may deliver
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, reported 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 lack of studies and overall low quality of evidence,
that supports drug combinations 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 ok.
