Chronic back pain may not respond to standard medication and treatment

Medication and standard symptomatic treatment plays an effective role in assisting short term acute back pain in the initial stages.

Millions of people worldwide are realizing with a great deal of angst and frustration that chronic back pain may not be cured by medication. In many cases people turn to standard physical therapy and chiropractic treatments, and in a great percentage of cases, surgery looking for a life of pain free living.

Mind altering drugs, designed to mask the pain have a short term, diminishing effect. The more and longer one takes them, the stronger the dosage required to provide any notable relief. 

Standard treatments whilst effective with acute, short term back pain, fail the vast majority of chronic back pain sufferers providing only short-term relief to their symptoms with their pain shortly returning.

If we look across westernized countries, USA, Canada, UK, Australia to name a few 80% of people suffer from back pain at same stage throughout their life. Many of these people respond to the standard approach and recover during the early acute stages of back pain (3 months). The concerning fact is that the vast majority of back pain sufferers are not cured, being left with constant or recurring debilitating pain affecting all areas of their life’s. 

The toll this has on individuals suffering chronic back pain and to their families and loved ones is severe. The financial cost alone is enormous costing Americans upwards of $50 Billion dollars per year as well as Billions of dollars per year in medication and time taken off work due to severe flare ups. Chronic back pain sufferers appear to age so much faster than non-sufferers due to the constant battle of getting through the day and trying to function as normal as possible.
