Did you know that medication is recommended as a last resort for both acute and chronic low back pain?

Multidisciplinary rehab  therapies such as laser therapy (done by our physiotherapists), massage, yoga and mindfulness-based stress reduction should be tried first. Medication should only be considered after these options have been exhausted. Even then, there are medications to try before resorting to opioids (such as anti-inflammatories). -As recommended by American College of Physicians, 2017. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28192789
