This common drug does NOTHING for back pain
If you’ve had those on-again, off-again battles with back pain, you know the score.
You’re never truly free of back pain.
The best you can hope for is to free yourself from it… FOR NOW.
At least, that’s what the mainstream will have you think — because the best they can do is give you some meds for the symptoms until the pain goes away on its own.
Then, when it comes back, it’s more meds and more waiting.
I’ve got something better, and I’ll share my secret in a moment.
First, the latest research shows why you’re never truly free of that pain if you rely on painkillers: They don’t work!
The study looked at 35 clinical trials involving some 6,000 patients and found that NSAID medications such as the wildly popular drug ibuprofen do absolutely zip for most of the people who take them.
In fact, FIVE out of SIX patients get no benefit at all!
Don’t be tempted by the idea that you might be the lucky winner — because even if you are that one out of six who gets relief, you could end up with something worse.
NSAIDs will boost your risk of dangerous intestinal problems such as stomach ulcers and internal bleeding.
This particular study focused on NSAIDs, but your other options for pain pills aren’t much better.
The same research team previously looked at acetaminophen — a.k.a. Tylenol — and found that drug also won’t help much. Same goes for opioid painkillers, which are only slightly better than a placebo but come with a risk of overdose, addiction, and death.
It might seem like you’ve got no place left to turn.
But I promised you something better, and I’ve got it.
I recommend a two-step approach to fight the immediate pain now, while attacking the cause so it doesn’t come back later.
First, for quick relief when pain comes on suddenly, try natural anti-inflammatories such as topical MSM. For relief of ongoing back problems, consider nondrug therapies such as acupuncture, chiropractic, and cold laser.
And second, work with a doctor who can help figure out why you’re in so much pain in the first place. It could be something as simple as poor posture — especially if you spend a lot of time sitting — or as complex as an old undiagnosed injury.
Once you find and fix that problem, you’ll never have to worry about being pain free “for now.”
You’ll be pain free for good!
