Doubled Risk of Heart Attack for Chronic Pain Sufferers

Share Article

Chronic pain sufferers are gripped, in a climate of panic and fear, amid revelations, concerning the 'doubled risk' of heart attacks, for sufferers who use over-the-counter painkillers on a prolonged basis.

James Finn, 36, father of two, who suffers from Ankylosing Spondylitis said, "Being a father, I am very worried about the risks, but the thought of not using something to control the pain, just wouldn't be worth entertaining."

According to a clinical study published in June, 2006, by the British Medical Journal, the risk of heart attack doubles with high doses of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) and Diclofenac over a prolonged period of time. (although, according to researchers, these pain relief drugs were safe to take on a short-term only basis). Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis and Chronic back pain sufferers are considered to be particularly at risk because their quality of life is often dependent on the regular intake of these types of painkillers

Donna Gray, Director of Magnetics 4 Back Pain said, “February 2006, saw the approval of Magnetic Therapy by the National Health Service; so hopefully chronic pain sufferers will feel more confident about exploring natural pain relief alternatives as a result. We have found that many users of Magnetic Therapy report that they have been able to reduce the amount of painkillers they regularly use.”

According to Ms. Gray, there are two free reports to help Back Pain sufferers decide if Magnetic Therapy might be for them and which give readers an overview of other Complementary therapies currently available.

Ms Gray set up Magnetics 4 Back Pain in the belief that Magnetic Therapy is a truly viable and natural alternative for pain relief. She personally witnessed how the pain-relieving powers of Magnetic Therapy helped her mom 'get her life back,' after being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
