Numerous chronic back pain sufferers visit their primary care practitioners first. It’s a pretty standard routing. Primary care recommendations for chronic low back pain care often involve exercise, oral prescriptions of NSAIDs and SNRI’s like duloxetine. In research, there is a curious statistic called “number to treat” which indicates the number of patients with a certain condition who need to have it done the treatment recommendation for 1 of the treatment recipients to get 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 three options, exercise was the only intervention that showed sustained chronic low back pain relief after the intervention ended and up to 48 weeks later.
