New Recommendations for Back Pain Treatment


The American College of Physicians (ACP) released new guidelines for the treatment of the most common form of "non-specific" low back pain this week. Nonspecific pain is when your back hurts and "you're not sure what you did to it."

The headline? For pain that has lasted less than 12 weeks, non-drug treatment is recommended as the first line of treatment, including heat-wraps, massage, acupuncture and spinal manipulation. 

You can read more details in US News and World Report, and a number of other publications. If you want to go straight to the source, The American College of Physicians website has all the details.

We know superficial heat works wonders on low back pain. We believe in it so much, we have a collection of great solutions that help put the heat where you need it. Check out our favorite finds in our For the Back category of heat and ice wraps (many of our wraps can be heated, or chilled, if you think you need to alternate with ice to relieve inflammation.)
