Managing Pain

By any measure, back pain is a huge public health problem. It affects approximately 25 percent of adults. While acute back pain usually resolves completely within weeks, pain becomes a chronic problem in 10 to 15 percent of cases.  To relieve their pain, many people take over-the-counter medications—either acetaminophen or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs, including aspirin, naproxen, and ibuprofen). Stronger medications, including NSAIDs in higher dosages and narcotics, are available by prescription only. Evidence does indicate that patients may benefit from nondrug therapies such as acupuncture, cognitive behavioral therapy, physical therapy, spinal manipulation, exercise therapy, and therapeutic massage.

Individuals searching for relief from chronic back pain pursue many treatment options, including:
