BACK PAIN SPECIALIST’S PLAN FOR BACK PAIN RELIEF ADDS EXERCISE Many chronic back pain sufferers take themselves to their primary care practitioners first. It’s a pretty standard routing. Primary care recommendations for chronic low back pain care usually involve exercise, oral prescriptions of NSAIDs and SNRI’s like duloxetine. In research, there is a curious statistic called “number to treat” which denotes the number of patients with a certain condition who need to go through the treatment recommendation for 1 of them to report benefit. In this new study, the number to treat for 1 chronic low back pain patient to report benefit from exercise was 7, from NSAIDs 6, and SNRIs 10. Of these 3 options, exercise was the only intervention that demonstrated sustained chronic low back pain relief after the intervention ended and up to 48 weeks later.
