Abstract

About 15% (12–30%) of the population experience pain in the lower back – LBP (lumbosacral region). Back pain is nonspecific in most cases (90–95%). In the past decade, the number of patients with back pain has remained virtually unchanged while the cost of medical care for this category of patients has risen manifold, which constitutes one of the most important problems in health care today. The paper considers main approaches to drug and nondrug therapies for nonspecific acute LBP in the context of current evidence-based medicine data, as well as new possibilities of effective and safe relief of pain syndrome in this group of patients.
