RCT of Low Back Pain Treatments

This RCT in JAMA showed no difference in a validated disability score at 1 week in patients taking naproxen + placebo, naproxen + cyclobenzaprine 5mg, or naproxen + oxycodone 5mg/acetaminophen 325mg.  The upshot is that not much helps people with back pain except time.  It also gives us good evidence that opiates really don't help people with back pain.  Article Link
