BACK PAIN – A LIFESTYLE AILMENT
Increasingly the medical community is turning its back to the predominant medical model for treating backaches. In the light of recent studies expensive and invasive treatments recommended by doctors and hospitals that rely on strong opioid-based drugs, injections and surgeries are being compelled to take a back-seat. This year’s Lancet’s series of three articles raised scathing remarks on the rampant use of “inappropriate tests” and “unnecessary, ineffective and harmful treatments”. Hence, if you are dealing with lower back pains, opt for solutions primarily in the domain of life-style.
