Study Finds Common Back Pain Treatment Doesn't Offer Relief

Description

A commonly prescribed treatment for people suffering from chronic back pain may not be providing any relief. A new review suggests that antidepressants when prescribed for chronic pain, provide little to no back pain relief. The review did find that the medications could however offer a modest benefit for osteoarthritis and sciatica. Their review looked at data from 33 clinical trials studying the use of antidepressants for chronic pain. Antidepressants are frequently prescribed by doctors to help chronic pain sufferers with their mental distress.

  • Study: You Can Probably Avoid An Appendectomy With One Simple Treatment

    Nobody in their right mind would want appendicitis, but a new study says there is a way to have a fighting chance of avoiding surgery for it. Researchers from the University of Washington School of Medicine found 7 in 10 appendicitis patients treated with antibiotics ultimately avoid surgery. Of 1,552 participants from 14 states, about 71% of those who took antibiotics did not have surgery within three months. What's more, UPI reports participants in the antibiotic group missed about 3 1/2 fewer days of work. With surgery, the appendix is fully removed. But with antibiotics, appendicitis can return. The researchers next want to study the frequency of reoccurrence.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
