"Landmark Trial Shows Opioids for Back Pain No Better Than Placebo
Jun 07, 2024

Opioids do not relieve acute low back pain in the short run and lead to worse outcomes when the back pain becomes chronic. This is the result of the first randomized controlled study of safety and efficacy of the use of opioids for lower back pain.

After 6 weeks, there was no significant difference in pain scores of patients who took opioids compared to those who took the placebo. And amazingly, after one year, the placebo patients had lower pain scores than those taking the real thing.

This study* was conducted by Christine Lin PhD. in Australia with 347 adults who had been experiencing low back pain for at least 12 weeks.

Doctor Lin comments about the study:
"We need to reassure doctors and patients that most people with lower back pain will recover with time if they manage the process properly by - staying active, avoiding bed rest, and if necessary, using a heat pack for short term relief.Ē

*Study conducted by the National Health and Research Council and University of Sydney.

This study is very surprising but good information to know. We think itís great that Dr. Lin basically says whatever you do if you have lower back pain, donít stop moving. We know thatís hard but itís the best course for recovery."

ALSO: Thanks for your overwhelming response!

Sales of the new online course have exceeded our most optimistic expectations. We loved creating this particular course because it allowed us to deep dive into the most common TMS symptom - back pain.
