Issues in the use of complementary/alternative medical therapies for low back pain.

Abstract:

:Unfortunately, current conventional medical treatments for low back pain are not managing the problem effectively. Standard approaches to treatment, particularly surgery, may even be exacerbating the problem and causing additional pain and suffering. In this context, it is understandable that LBP patients often go outside of the conventional medical system seeking other treatment options. Conventional medical physicians who treat low back pain patients, therefore, need to become more aware of the fact that their patients may be using complementary/alternative medical therapies.
