The fact is that patients often present in acute pain to a chiropractor. It is true we avoid recommending long term use of medications and do not believe in treating the symptoms but would rather address the cause of a problem. It’s also true that acute pain and swelling sometimes make it impossible to function, move and sleep. When pain is acute, sharp and debilitating, we do recommend non-steroidal inflammatory medications, such as Ibuprofen 200mg for a short course. Popular brands in Australia like Nurofen are also available generically in supermarket and smaller company brands. While NSAID’s (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) are excellent anti-inflammatory pain medications, they can have severe adverse side effects. Some of these include kidney failure, GI tract/stomach bleeding, decreased platelets in your blood, liver damage, and high blood pressure. So, it’s important to check the ingredients in each medication you buy over the counter or the generic name for a prescription you are written to see if any of the following drugs are in them. Here’s a list of what to look for: Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Naprosyn, Ketoprofen, Flurbiprofen, Oxaprozin, Diclofenac, Etodolac, Tolmetin, Sulindac, Indomethacin, Toradol/Ketorolac, Meloxicam, Piroxicam, Meclofenamate, Nabumetone, Celecoxib/Celebrex Where possible, we like to use a natural pain reliever and anti-inflammatory such as Cumerone, derived from tumeric. Our preference is Nalgesic Forte.
