No Adverse Effects Reported in Patients with Spine Stimulators Treated with Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation

of the most frequently prescribed meds for sciatica! (4) NSAIDs are
reported as effective for spine pain in a different study, but the difference
is not clinically significant between NSAIDs and placebo.
It further states that there are no simple analgesics that give
clinically important relief over placebo. (5) Well, Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC’s
