Why Medications Aren’t Recommended for Low Back Pain

Keyword(s): medication low back pain

Meta description: At Rebel Mobility and Fitness we believe there are better ways to treat back pain than medications. Learn more and see the surprising stats in our new blog.

Bottom Line:

Although NSAID medications can be purchased over the counter, it doesn't mean they don't have risks and dangers.

Why it Matters:

Over the past twenty years, we've seen the effects of low back pain change our healthcare landscape forever.

  • It’s estimated that 100,000 people are hospitalized each year from NSAID related complications.

  • Each day, it’s estimated that 100 people pass away as a result of opioid overdoses.

Leading healthcare organizations have taken note and now recommend that movement-based care options, such as chiropractic, are explored for most low back issues before medications.

The added benefit? Most people who explore chiropractic care take far fewer medications than those who don't.

Why? Because it works.

The care that chiropractors deliver ranks at the top of nearly every list!

Next Steps:

Medications are designed to mask the pain, not fix the problem.

Receiving a whole body movement assessment and getting to the root cause of the problem is the first step towards finding relief with lasting change.

After discovering the cause of your pain, we can work together to craft a customized care plan that will help you reduce your pain and return to the things you love. No cookie cutter approaches here.
