That’s according the BottomLineInc and the recent report. Here is what they had to say about it:
“The slightest relief the provide is little better than that of NSAIDS, such as aspirin. Self-defense: Regular exercise and education about its benefits reduce the risk of developing lower-back pain by as much as 45%. Analysis of date from 20 trials including 7,295 patients by researchers at University of Sydney, Australia, published in JAMA Internal Medicine.”
Huh? No mention of chiropractic care, imagine that. What is important here is that the meds most often recommended (still), don’t work – instead we have an epidemic of the consequences of their use.
What is also important is that exercise is a big deal and will work. Of course, not all exercises, are equal: what to do, when to do it, how to do it; what not to do and why are factors to consider. I think it’s important to consult someone who knows something about these things.
