Nonspecific Lower Back Pain in Adults

A muscle relaxant such as diazepam is occasionally prescribed for a few days if the back muscles become very tense and make the pain worse.

About 8 in 10 people have one or more bouts of low back pain. In most cases, it is not due to a serious disease or serious back problem, and the exact cause of the pain is not clear. This is called nonspecific lower back pain. The usual advice is to keep active, and do normal activities as much as possible. Painkillers can help until the pain eases. In most cases, the pain disappears within six weeks but may come back (recur) from time to time.

Advise patients to stay as active as possible and to continue normal daily activities.

Assessment should include psychological, occupational and socioeconomic factors in the patient's life since such non-physical factors can complicate both assessment and treatment.

Patients who have not returned to ordinary activities and work by 6 weeks should be referred for reactivation / rehabilitation.

Do not recommend or use bed rest as a treatment for simple back pain. The aim is to use symptomatic measures to control pain to let patients return to normal activity as rapidly as possible and to minimise bed rest. Some patients may initially be confined to bed as a consequence of their pain but this should not be considered as a treatment.

Carry out diagnostic triage.

Advise paracetamol at regular intervals for simple back ache.

My back pain has returned with a vengeance. Muscles spasms and shooting pains down my legs. I knew it was going to happen from yesterday.

It has helped a lot along with increased tramadol and diclofenac. But, I still can’t really do anything. Could not go to work, for my final day before annual leave. Could not go the Christmas Carole Service at Summer Girl’s school. Can’t tidy up the very messy house.

This morning was very tough. I have a stinking cough and every single little cough, with me braced by laying on the sofa, leaning toward the floor and taking my weight onto my hands, legs bent to take the weight, had me screaming in pain.
