Music for Back Pain? – Take 2 Tunes and Call Me in the Morning
By: Dr. William Sturrock
Chronic Back Pain is one of the most common and frustrating conditions that afflicts mankind. Despite the advances in modern medicine over the past 2 centuries, this vexing complaint frustrates both patients and their doctors by its seeming lack of response to multiple interventions. Over the past decade many providers have tried to help these symptoms with a variety of medications, from non-steroidals (aspirin, ibuprofen, etc.), to muscle relaxers and more recently to narcotic class medication without any ‘magic-bullet’ being found. Pain specialists now advise the avoidance of the narcotic class except for brief usage during flare-ups as these meds are not only addicting, they lose effect after just a week’s usage due to development of tolerance. Some providers tout the benefits of manipulation, but there are many patients who say they have tried this without long-term relief and some who feel this has made it worse!
