New Report says medical doctors are not the first you should turn to for Low Back Pain; American College of Physicians (ACP), recommends avoiding medications such as Tylenol and muscle relaxants and using other
modalities such as massage, heat, acupuncture, exercise, yoga as the primary approach to Low Back Pain.
The American College of Physicians, a national organization of specialists in internal medicine, published the new recommendations, the first in a decade, in the Annals of Internal Medicine. It means leading medical
doctors are saying the first choice when it comes to treating back pain is by following the Hippocratic oath: “first do no harm.” Powerful pharmaceutical drugs and expensive tests do more harm than good.
The report recommends Drugless remedies should be the first-line therapy. In particular Acupuncture showed noticeable and lasting effect in pain reduction and functional ability. You can find the report here:
