The National Institute on Drug Abuse and the National Institutes of Health have identified both opioid research and pain research as top priorities. Earlier this year, the American College of Physicians released new guidelines for treating lower back pain, urging doctors to first try non-pharmacological therapies that often fall under chiropractic care, including spinal manipulation, exercise and acupuncture.
Do you think this is a good change of policy?

This new study from JAMA surprised even me. I have known that opioid (narcotic) drugs are little to no better than anti-inflammatories for chronic conditions, but this study done on acute conditions presenting to a hospital emergency department also shows opioids no better than NSAID and acetomeniphen (Tylenol) combo. More reason to try non drug treatments including chiropractic care.
Does this surprise you also?

The National Institutes of Health will be providing over $11.2 million for a study to evaluate to test whether early treatment in the acute phase with spinal manipulation or self-management vs usual care can prevent the condition from becoming chronic. This is a very important study as chronic back conditions account for the majority of the disabiity and costs associated with low back pain and presciptions for opioid drugs.
