Low back pain is one of the most common reasons for doctor visits in the US. πŸ‘‰Last year, The American College of Physicians (ACP) recommended that for patients with acute or subacute low back pain, clinicians and patients should initially select nonpharmacological treatment with superficial heat, massage, acupuncture, or spinal manipulation. (www.acponline.org) πŸ™Œ Having this recommendation published in an evidence-based clinical practice guideline is a huge step in the right direction, especially given the opioid epidemic that we are currently facing. If you are suffering from low back pain, when speaking to your doctor, do not hesitate to ask them about ALL of your options!
