The Dangers of Drugs

for Back Pain Treatment


Conventional health care practitioners are quick to prescribe medications like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), acetaminophen. But even if these medications can provide immediate back pain relief, their effect is only temporary – the pain will come back sooner or later and in some cases will cause increased sensitivity to pain!

If you suffer from ongoing joint pain, your doctor may recommend that you get a corticosteroid, or hydrocortisone injection. Because cortisol can drastically reduce inflammatory conditions, the synthetic form of cortisone is often used to treat several kinds of inflammatory conditions, ranging from an acute allergic response to chronic pain that can go on for years.

Your doctor will tell you that the effects of an injection into a joint are local and not systemic. If the effects of anything in the body are systemic, this means that it affects the entire body, as opposed to just one area. Is there any part of the body that is completely isolated from the rest? The entire body is a network of cells, all communicating with one another.

You’ll learn in this guide about possible consequences of overusing drugs and synthetic substances and what you can do instead.
