New Guidelines Issued For Treatment Of Lower Back Pain

CBS News (2/13, LaPook) reports on its website that the American College of Physicians released new guidelines that says "the first line of therapy” for chronic low back pain "should be non-drug treatments.” The new guidelines recommend "heat wraps, massage, acupuncture and spinal manipulation” for pain lasting less than three months, and recommend treatments such as "stretching and strengthening exercises, tai chi, yoga, acupuncture, and mindfulness techniques” for pain lasting more than three months.
        Newsday (NY) (2/13, Ricks) reports, "The new guidelines emphasize that opioid” pain medications "should be considered only as a last resort.”
        The New York Times (2/13, A21, Kolata, Subscription Publication) reports that in its recommendations, the ACP "did not address surgery.” Instead, "its focus was on noninvasive treatment.” In addition, imaging "scans... for diagnosis are worse than useless for back pain patients, members of the group said in telephone interviews.” Scan "results can be misleading, showing what look like abnormalities that actually are not related to the pain.” The new guidelines (2/14) were published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.


Far too often, physicians will make mountains out of molehills by doing invasive biopsies or surgery to remove abnormal masses or cell growths within the body. The problem with this approach is that in many cases the otherwise harmless cancer cells will spread and grow to other areas of the body. This is similar to opening Pandora’s Box.  Pandora’s Box is the mythological story of all treachery and evils that could trouble mankind upon opening the box. There are millions of people who have harmless cancer cells that remain stagnant in areas of the body as long as they are left alone. For example, many women have uterine/ovarian cysts or cysts within the breast glands. If these harmless abnormal growths are left alone, most women will surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy drugs to try and eliminate the cancer cells. We understand that harmless tumors and cancer cells may live in our bodies and will not bother us as long as they are left alone. This is especially true when you have the 6 criteria’s of health. There have been many reported cases of patients making inquiry into a suspicious growth in their body. A poor decision of surgically removing the growth is often made, and unfortunately, the growths come back in even more places and at an advanced rate of growth. When your body symptoms are good, do not make mountains out of molehills by opening Pandora’s Box.
