"Medication For Back Pain: The Temporary Short Term Fix...And Long Term Danger!"

Pain medications, pain shots, nerve blocks, muscle relaxers...They help in the short run but do they last? No! When the pain is extreme you may need to take something to take the edge off but don't think it's gunna be the cure.

Most meds work by tricking the brain into not feeling the pain. Pain shots may dull the nerves for a short time or help reduce internal inflammation in the short term. Unfortunately, the cause of the problem is still there and could even be getting worse.

Your body is experiencing pain, or maybe numbness, or weakness because there is a problem and your body is telling you that. It's common sense to know that just covering up the pain with some kind of drug can eventually create more problems.

What is the real cause of the pain?? The answer: pressure on the nerves from a misaligned spine or pelvis, a disc problem (degeneration/bulging disc or herniated disc), and inflammation; or all of the above!

DRX 9000 Spinal Decompression may be the answer for any disc problem causing back or leg pain. Chiropractic care can correct the misalignments and help low back muscle tension. Don't hesitate to call or email our office for more information.
