Painkillers for chronic pain deemed unsafe by NHS

You may have seen in the news that the NHS are unsure if prescribing painkillers for chronic pain is the best practice. Doctors soon will be recommending alternative therapies to combat this.

Painkillers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen can do 'more harm than good' and should not be prescribed to treat chronic pain, health officials have said. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence claims that there is 'little or no evidence' the drugs, as well as aspirin and opioids, work.  

At City Chiropractic in Liverpool City Centre we can provide chiropractic, physical therapy, acupuncture, sports massage and shockwave therapy.

We manage chronic pain on a day to day basis. Many of our patients report not needing painkillers as much or at all any more.

I can’t believe the difference in my Arthritic pain since attending Liverpool City Chiropractic . It’s gone. I still have Arthritis on my x-ray but no pain from it. I can not recommend Dak and Naomh enough. Thank you

If you are unsure if we could help please come in for a consultation and let us show you what we do best.

yours in health
