more emphasis on the appropriate treatment of acute low back pain

You'll see more emphasis on the appropriate treatment of acute low back pain...due to increased use of opioids and benzodiazepines.

This treatment trend is worrisome...there's NO proof that opioids (oxycodone, etc) or benzodiazepines (diazepam, etc) are better than NSAIDs (ibuprofen, etc) or acetaminophen for back pain.

And we know these meds carry a risk of abuse and addiction.
