How great it would be to take a
pill – or even better: a combination of pills! - and have your
Manahawkin back pain or neck pain vanish
immediately? You are not alone! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center can relate.
Pain disrupts our lives. Back pain prevents many
Manahawkin 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 a loved one or friend, visit Manahawkin Chiropractic Center for relief and chiropractic
advice about pain management without
drugs when or if drugs are not doing what you need or are not in
your treatment plan.
NOT WELL 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 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 lack of studies and overall low quality of evidence,
that supports combining drugs for low back
pain and sciatica. Additionally, 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 is fine.

RECOMMENDED: SPINAL MANIPULATION
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal
Pain Management which integrates a specialized
form of spinal manipulation has helped countless
Manahawkin back pain sufferers realize relief of their back pain. Spinal manipulation is recommended
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 happens. (5) For many back pain sufferers, 50%
relief would be most welcome. What about you?
RESEARCH SUPPORTED: CHONDROITIN SULFATE, TURMERIC AND CURCUMIN
To heighten the relief and assist
our Manahawkin back pain patients, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center integrates
supplements into the Manahawkin 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 are helpful in the short-term
as well as long term. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is prepared to help you find
the right combination of treatment ways to reduce
your back pain.
