What’s necessary to relieve back pain and sciatica? The latest practice guidelines by OPTIMa for the noninvasive management of low back pain point to a combination of approaches with manual therapy, patient education, staying active/exercise, and paracetamol or NSAIDs as first-line treatments. The recommendation to use paracetamol for acute low back pain is being reconsidered due to recent evidence and needs to be reconsidered says OPTIMa. (1) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka’s approach to Sitka back pain incorporates Cox Technic, exercise, patient education and nutrition as core parts of the treatment plan along with other chiropractic services to promote the quickest and most effective relief available. Certainly some Sitka back pain patients benefit from NSAIDs at times to get through the worst of the pain. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka works cooperatively with local healthcare colleagues for the benefit of our Sitka chiropractic patients.
