London, GB (PRWEB) April 20, 2014 -- Dr. Allen’s therapeutic devices relieve sciatica and lower back pain naturally. This is important to know, as according to Anesthesiology News, more than 3% of all Americans use opioids for chronic pain relief, and many experience constipation as a side effect, Fine Treatment reveals.
The article 'Evidence Lacking for Long-Term Opioid Use in Low Back Pain', published in Doctors-Lounge, dated April 16, 2014, states: "There is evidence of short-term efficacy (moderate for pain and small for function) of opioids for treatment of chronic low back pain (CLBP) compared with placebo; however, the effectiveness and safety of long-term opioid therapy for treatment of CLBP remains unproven, according to a review published in the April 1 issue of Spine."
At the same time, the Anesthesiology News reviewed the article in Clinical Anesthesiology, 'Study Finds Gaps in Knowledge of Opioid-Induced Constipation', published in March 2014, and stated: "When opioids interact with the gastrointestinal tract, the drugs can trigger opioid-induced constipation (OIC), which poses a serious obstacle to effective pain management. However, data from a recent study showed that about half of physicians who prescribe opioids for long-term use do not prescribe prophylaxis for OIC."
“Constipation is a top side effect” of opioid use, said the study author Sharon Hwang, MD, MPH, medical director of CE Outcomes, a health care research firm in Birmingham, Ala. It is usual that patients receive up to nine tablets of senna per day—three tablets, three times daily. If laxatives are insufficient, next steps include tap water enemas and suppositories. After 72 to 96 hours of constipation and failure of rectal treatments, clinicians may administer methylnaltrexone (Relistor, Salix).
"Any long-term intake of medication, including opioids, for CLBP should be considered with caution, as severe side effects may follow," notes Dr. Simon Allen. "Two Dr. Allen’s Devices are designed to treat chronic pain in lower back area: the one for herniated discs positions the thermo-element over the spine, while the second device is designed for sciatica relief and applies 2 thermo-elements to the sore areas in the lower back region, as sciatica can affect both sides of the body.’

“Dr. Allen’s therapeutic device needs to be applied correctly so that it covers the sore area,” notes Dr. Simon Allen. “Dr. Allen’s therapeutic devices give an immense help to sufferers with chronic pain, letting them enjoy their life again without opioids and other medications.”
