Leading medical opinion is changing its previous guidelines, which called for medication as first-line treatment.  

“Pills, even over-the-counter pain relievers and anti-inflammatories, should not be the first choice. We need to look at therapies that are nonpharmacological first”.

These are the recent views of the American College of Physicians for the treatment of lower back pain, Dr. James Weinstein, a back pain specialist and chief executive of Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health System and Dr. Damie Nitin, a physician at South County Internal Medicine and on the board of South County Health Care.

“The best kind of medicine is the gentlest treatment that produces the maximum healing response”  Andrew M Weil MD

 Risks of painkillers:

Constipation, Nausea, Vomiting, Dizziness, Confusion, Addiction, Unconsciousness, Respiratory depression, Increased risk of heart attack, Coma, Death and more……..


Having back pain is stressful and stress can contribute to a range of health problems, including high blood pressure, obesity, depression, anxiety and more……….

 7 back pain treatment mistakes:

  1. Treatments that don’t address your pain relief and the causes and “hidden” causes of your pain.
  2. Treatments that are not preventative, corrective and non-invasive.
  3. Treatments that do not address the dangers and side effects of medication
  4. Treatments that do not work at a cellular level, because our cells are the basic building blocks of our bodies.
  5. Treatments that do not treat body and mind (emotions). People often think of pain as a purely physical sensation. However, pain has physical and emotional factors. Chronic pain can cause feelings such as stress, anxiety, tension, anger, fear, hopelessness and sadness. No emotional health, no physical health.
  6. Treatments that do not address lifestyle and dietary changes, because these may be the cause of your pain. Treating them will allow you to get on with your life, your work and your recreational activities.
  7. Treatments that don’t relax you and leave you feeling good.
