Lower back pain (LBP) is frequently treated based on symptoms, duration, and underlying cause. Most of the time, it is acute and resolves on its own. But almost one-third of the patients with acute lower back pain (LBP) fail to recover and develop chronic lower back pain.
American College of Physicians (ACP) recommends that physicians and patients should treat acute, subacute, and chronic lower back pain without medication. Usually, these therapies are enough for acute and subacute lower back pain patients.
All the drugs used to treat lower back pain (LBP) are harmful. Even non-prescription, also called over-the-counter medications, are not risk-free. Because of these severe effects, adding the best alternative therapy for back pain is recommended.
