NSAIDs Offer Minimal Benefit for Pain Relief

headache-migraines-300x181Over the counter pain medication often serves as the go-to remedy for pain relief for symptoms such as headaches, sprains and arthritis, with over 30 million Americans using non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) on a daily basis. These pain relievers, such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen and aspirin can be harmful, causing side effects like gastrointestinal problems, high blood pressure, kidney damage and allergic reactions.

NSAIDs work on a chemical level to block the effects of special enzymes – specifically Cox-1 and Cox-2 enzymes. These enzymes play a key role in making prostaglandins, which causes the tissue to swell and you to feel pain. While over the counter or prescription drugs may provide temporary pain relief, a doctor of chiropractic can work with patients to relieve pain for good.

When used for daily pain relief, NSAIDs can cause health issues such as ulcers and other problems in your esophagus, stomach and small intestine. This occurs because one type of prostaglandin, blocked by the drugs, is used to protect the lining of the stomach and the GI tract. Additionally, patients who use NSAIDs regularly often experience high blood pressure because the drugs block blood flow to the kidneys, causing them work at a slower pace. When the kidneys aren’t working as quickly, blood fills up in the body, creating higher blood pressure.
