The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Drugs Scourge -

IT is bad news for the many peo­ple af­flicted by the agony of back pain.

Which­ever treat­ments they try — heat pads, chi­ro­prac­tic treat­ments or er­gonomic chairs — only one in five can ever ex­pect to re­cover.

The study from the Cana­dian Krem­bil Re­search In­sti­tute found only 20 per cent of suf­fer­ers had their symp­toms go away.

It con­cludes that other ex­perts may have got it wrong in sug­gest­ing back pain will re­solve in most cases.
