Numerous chronic back pain sufferers find themselves going to their primary care practitioners first. It’s a pretty normal experience.

In research, there is a curious statistic called “number to treat” which indicates the number of patients with a certain condition who need to have it done the treatment recommendation for 1 of them to get benefit. In this new study, the number to treat for 1 chronic low back pain patient to report benefit from exercise was 7, from NSAIDs 6, and SNRIs 10. Of these three options, exercise was the only intervention that showed continued chronic low back pain relief after the intervention ended and up to 48 weeks later.
