Hello Dr. Graham,

I have come down with a severe muscle pull in my lower back
due to multiple factors. Some caring friends have expressed
that they are perplexed and frustrated that I am declining to
take pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory drugs amid significant
pain and limited mobility.

I have alternatively been using frequent chiropractic care,
rest, partial water fasting, lumbar support, and icing during
my time of injury, and have seen slight improvement with my
pain and mobility so far. Considering the extent of my injury,
it seems reasonable that I am still in pain. Also, I bet that
some inevitable activities such as getting in and out of the
car, and sitting down on a chair or toilet, contribute to the
overall pain.

I personally don't want those drugs in my body, and I think it
could disrupt the healing process or create an added stressor.
What would your own reasons be for declining an anti-
inflammatory pharmaceutical if you were injured? Would you
also decline an herbal anti-inflammatory?

My gut feeling has been to forgo the drugs, but I don't know
how to educate and reassure my loving friends about my choice.
I would be grateful to hear your thoughts please.

Thank you,
Persimmon Enthusiast
