Numerous chronic back pain sufferers visit their primary care practitioners first. It’s a pretty normal experience. Primary care recommendations for chronic low back pain care often involve exercise, oral prescriptions of NSAIDs and SNRI’s like duloxetine. In research, there is a curious statistic called “number to treat” which denotes the number of patients with a certain condition who need to undergo the treatment recommendation for 1 of them to get benefit. In this recent 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.
