New Back Pain Treatment is INSANE
When you’re dealing with chronic back pain, you can forget hitting the golf links or meeting friends for a lunch date.
Just getting off the couch can be AGONIZING.
Roughly 80 percent of Americans end up dealing with some form of back pain – from strained muscles to herniated discs to sciatica.
And Big Pharma loves to throw CRAZY new drugs at us, promising relief.
Even if that means pushing a dangerous med that has nothing to do with pain management.
You’re not going to believe their wild new scheme… but I’ll show you EXACTLY how to keep yourself safe.
In the last decade, a disturbing trend has grown within the pharmaceutical world…
Docs are prescribing anticonvulsants for back pain – without any science to back it up.
These meds – like Lyrica and Neurontin, for example – are meant for people with neurological disorders like epilepsy and sometimes fibromyalgia.
They are NOT meant to treat an aching back.
Research from the University of Sydney in Australia discovered a shocking 535 percent increase in anticonvulsant prescriptions in the last ten years.
And these drugs have been linked to a number of truly horrific side effects.
There’s even a Facebook group called “Lyrica Survivors” where patients share their experiences of depression, brain fog, weight gain, vision loss, dizziness, fatigue, incontinence, and more.
And the anticonvulsant gabapentin (sold under several brand names, including Neurontin) causes similar adverse effects.
These drugs are a nightmare even for patients with the conditions they’re approved to treat!
But Big Pharma has docs handing out anticonvulsants left and right, even when there are effective and safe treatments readily available.
If you or someone you love is suffering from back pain, don’t get tricked into taking a bogus prescription.
Sometimes a routine chiropractic adjustment is the best way to get rid of back pain for good.
You can also try massage and acupuncture.
And for all-natural, risk free anti-inflammatory help, try arnica over ibuprofen or acetaminophen.
Arnica is an ancient herb that relieves aches and pains. It comes as a topical cream as well as in pill form.
And, of course, adding natural anti-inflammatory foods and spices to your diet can help your body fight the pain on its own.
Try: turmeric, ginger, blueberries, and omega-3 fatty acids (like the kind you get in fish).
