MONDAY, Feb. 13, 2017 (HealthDay News) — People with low back pain should try drug-free remedies — from simple heat wraps to physical therapy — before resorting to medication, according to new treatment guidelines.
Low back pain is among the most common reasons that Americans visit the doctor, according to the American College of Physicians (ACP), which released the new guidelines on Monday.
The recommendations put more emphasis on nondrug therapies than previous ones have. They stress that powerful opioid painkillers — such as OxyContin and Vicodin — should be used only as a last resort in some cases of long-lasting back pain.
Another change: When medication is needed, acetaminophen (Tylenol) is no longer recommended.
Recent research has shown it’s not effecti
People & Anxiety Disorders
Anxiety attacks can come from the smallest thing or without any trigger. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental issue facing Americans, affecting approximately 40 million adults, or 18 percent of the population.
Unfortunately, given the stigma associated with mental illness, odds are quite good that you most likely have a number of patients in your practice who suffer from some type of anxiety disorder, you may not even know it. The sad fact is that these patients are simply too afraid or ashamed to say anything to you about it.
The good news, however, is that there has been some intriguing research showing that chiropractic can actually help reduce symptoms of panic attacks.

Auto Accidents & Back Injuries
The spine is a complex structure that consists of bone, muscle, tendons, ligaments, nerves and other tissues. Spine fitness is essential towards maintaining the body’s optimal performance as it functions to support an upright posture, provides flexibility to allow the body to bend and twist freely, and protect the spinal cord. While a healthy back can easily be taken for granted, a back injury or other type of complication may result in long-lasting consequences that could alter an individual’s aspect of daily life.
Unfortunately, back injuries are among the most common types of complications suffered after an automobile accident. Each day, thousands of individuals are involved in head-on, side-impact, and rear-end auto collisions, often leading to spinal injuries even during minor car crashes. Depending on the force of the impact, a single or multiple areas of the back may be a
Approximately 80 percent of the population has or will experienced acute or chronic symptoms of back pain at least once throughout their lifetimes, according to several research studies. While a great majority of these issues are only temporary and they do resolve on their own, the injuries and/or conditions behind the individual’s back pain can accumulate tremendous financial burdens from the medical system over time, amounting to a great increase in medical expenses, including lost employee hours and a loss of productivity from the workforce if the affected individual has to take time off to recover from their specific type of back pain.
Among the many types of complications, most described as extension related low back pain, some of the most common include: spinal disc herniation and bulges; degeneration of the spine; annular tears; ligament sprains; muscle strains, particularly in the quadratus lumborum; osteoarthritis; rheumatoid and ankylosing spondylitis; f
