NSAIDS Don't Work Long-Term
Dr. Curt Rexroth D.C. C.C.N. shares several studies the AMA has published concluding NSAIDs are not an effective treatment for low back, neck, and headache pain, leading many doctors to begin prescribing opioids instead. The doctor briefly describes the danger of this as opioids are highly addictive and not actually very effective pain killers. Instead, Dr. Rexroth begs listeners to try chiropractic care first, which the AMA now accepts as a proven method (and more effective) at reducing pain and improving function without any adverse effects.
