Failed Back Surgery Syndrome

Case History: How We Help If You’ve Had Back Surgery.

Mrs. A is a 78 year old patient who attended the practice with chronic lower back pains and general disability. She had FOUR (4) lower back surgeries. The patient was due for surgery number five but decided on a different, more conservative path.

Ovulation

Ibuprofen (Nurofen) Can Inhibit Ovulation

Inflammation is part of the body’s innate intelligence, a method by which damage is repaired. Unfortunately when this gets painful, it can be difficult for some people to let the body heal itself unaided so they reach for the drugs. Can’t blame anyone for this – as you have been aggressively marketed to for generations now.

NSAID’s can do the job, they may dull the pain. However, this fast relief comes at a cost.

Raised liver enzymes, diarrhoea, headaches, dizziness, salt and fluid retention and high blood pressure are only a few of the numerous side effects that come with use of NSAID’s.
