What’s necessary to relieve back pain and sciatica? The latest practice guidelines by OPTIMa for the noninvasive management of low back pain point to a combination of approaches with manual therapy, patient education, staying active/exercise, and paracetamol or NSAIDs as first-line treatments. The recommendation to use paracetamol for acute low back pain is being reconsidered due to recent evidence and needs to be reconsidered says OPTIMa.
