New back pain guidelines from the American Academy of Physicians counsel against prescribing pain medications. Chronic back pain should be treated with OTC medication and regular activity, not prescription pain meds. This is refreshing news for those of us on the front lines of the opioid epidemic. The study also confirmed what many of us already suspected . . . steroid injections provide little, if any, therapeutic help, and diagnostic MRIs are virtually useless to identify disc pathology caused by a work injury. The new guidelines have yet to be adopted.
