what to use for low back pain

New guidelines are clarifying what to use for low back pain.

Many patients end up on drug therapy for back pain. But meds are only moderately effective...and there's not much evidence to support using ANY of them long-term.

Acetaminophen (Tylenol) or NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, naproxen, etc, are usually tried first for acute or chronic back pain.
