Mindfulness-based stress reduction and cognitive-behavioral therapy may be more effective than the standard treatment for alleviating chronic low-back pain, a new study says. Standard treatment choices for lower back pain include over-the-counter and prescription drugs, cold and hot compresses, exercise, and in some cases, surgery.

Researchers have found that meditation is more effective than medication at easing chronic lower back pain. The study found that a programme called mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) had better results than standard medical care for managing lower back pain.

And now the doctors are telling us that meditation and cognitive behavioral therapy often work better than pain meds and other medical treatments for chronic back pain. A new study shows that mindful meditation and cognitive behavioral therapy can work better and the results can last longer than standard care for chronic back pain. A recent study showed that mindfulness-based stress reduction, which combines meditation and yoga, was more effective than drugs and surgery for alleviating chronic low-back pain. Meditation may work better than painkillers when it comes to soothing chronic low back pain, a new clinical trial suggests.

  • Nice Video clip! Forgive me for chiming in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you heard the talk about Dinanlinson Straightening Life Approach (google it)? It is a smashing exclusive guide for learning how to cure lower back pain minus the hard work. Ive heard some great things about it and my buddy at very last got great results with it.

  • https://taphpharma.com/shop/oxycontin-80mg/ so many people have different experience as far as this drug is concern but to me, oxycontin, oxycodone and fentanyl are the best pain meds of all time. I have lived the pass 8 years of my life under these drugs, thank God for it. i can not do without this drug and i believe there are several out there who can not do without it.

  • Hi I love this video, especially the advice in the second half about back pain lower right side
    . Something I also found helpfull for managing back pain
      was Renkarter Simple Back Report -you can  find it on google if you want

  • Unfortunately a nerve can get trapped or compromised leading to serious pain, and resulting in nerve blocks etc. It’s life changing when you go through this pain. Hopefully no one experiences it like I have. I’m a trained NMT. Neuromuscular therapist. Someday maybe I’ll do a TEDx Talk. I’m trying to beat L3,4,5 nerve pain radiating to groin, leg, feet that have excruciating pain, whilst dealing with Colon Cancer and operation with Chemotheraphy and now while dealing with virus problems I’ve developed neuropathy of hands and feet from chemo and that could last a long time. Laugh though everyone if you can. Enjoy life and hopefully that’s how I’ll get better. See you all soon on YouTube ������

  • I have searched for a back discomfort remedy for few months and this back pain guide fits me wonderfully. Certainly supports in back problems while sleeping. I really like this particular guideline. This is what I had been looking for. Research this tip on Google, the guidebook name is Mason Κonozback
    good luck

  • You’re able to take away your back pain once and for all by modify your exercise slightly I’ve try and now almost relief all the pain. I’m sure you should try it

  • I use opioids for my pain I’ve never gotten high. They just want you to take dangerous drugs like Cymbalta which destroyed my life and I can never get off it.
    The back injections don’t work and cost $6000 a shot.

  • My auntie normally wake up each morning having a lower back pain. I suggested her to follow along with this particular lower back pain guide and then in the next day, she`s got observed great advancements. She`s really content with the guideline.. Look for this guide on Google, the tip name is Mason Κonozback
    all the best

  • Im sympathetic to chronic pain, but research has actually shown that long term use of narcotics do not help pain. While you think its helping, you feel pain, you take it and you feel better, but if you’ve been on narcs for a long time its possible you are just treating withdrawal symptoms, which are painful! I also understand it’s easy for people to blame the Doctors, but think about it, they have rules and regulations they have to follow just like every other profession. If you spent years of your life to become a Dr would you break the rules and risk your entire livelihood?? They became Drs to help people, but they have to help within their scope of practice.

  • My mum has had back pain for years, she just started having a really bad pain in her right shoulder and arm which stops her from being able to move her arm without feeling really bad pain, she also says that the pain shoots up to the right side of her face

  • These people make me sick, if like to see them try to walk around with 2 broken legs, left untreated and see if they don’t come begging for help. What the hell difference does it make to them whether or not you take pain medication? I don’t get it? Because it’s more socially acceptable to die of a bleeding ulcer from the synthetic stuff they try to give you that does nothing, rather than pain medication? It’s ridiculous.

  • I know am not alone but these doctors only the got big mouth. I have chronic pain lumbar disc radiculopathy plus groin strain I had every thing the only solution they get is take painkillers physiotherapy not stress but they don’t know how my life through the pain. I have no rest. All my body is itching sometimes I think do suicide. Then I talk to self one day u will be happy don’t do this have faith your Iman 6 years and counting am in pain I sleep as skip one day the next day sleep with pain ��

  • Any one tested out the Backprolax Secrets
    (look on google search engine)? I’ve heard many awesome things about
    this popular back pain remedy.

  • Traditional Practices like Chinese Medicine is an effective treatment for pain without negative side effects. The goal is to educate Dr about Chinese Medicine. I work with patients on a daily basis helping them get the results so they can get their life back.

  • After a couple of months of looking for a remedy regarding my back problems, I discovered this back discomfort guide and it worked with my case. Absolutely supports in back pain during sleep. I am amazed by the effectiveness of this particular guideline. This is just what I had been seeking. Research this tip on Google, the guide name is Mason Κonozback
    With thanks

  • These politically motivated YouTube videos are outrageous lies. But hey, it helps murder folk who cannot get proper medication to treat their pain.j

  • Unfortunately this video failed to address the fact that recent research demonstrates that the use of opioids for chronic pain ultimately makes chronic pain worse. While opioids are great for the control of acute pain (pain lasting under 3 months) they are an extremely poor choice for chronic pain patients as they heighten sensitivity to pain with extended use.They also offer side effects such as depression, delayed reflexes, decreased respiratory function, and many other issues. Delayed reflexes are an especially important issue. If you wouldn’t trust an airline pilot to fly you to your next destination, then their is no way you should trust a driver to drive an automobile while under opioid medication. Yet many patients do exactly that, often with tragic results. The issue severely escalates if the opioid user has been drinking as even if the person is under the legal limit, mixing opioids with alcohol significantly compounds the issue.

  • Few months ago I was Confirm that I have herpes virus and ever since then I have been on research on how I will get rid of my Herpes but on one faithful day i saw someone testifying about Dr clinton and she was saying that she was cured from herpes virus and also I quickly copy his email address and I emailed Dr Clinton and he told me that I need to get some herbs which i purchased so he told me that he will ship the herbal medicine to me through DHL courier service and he also told me that his herbal medicine is going to take fourteen days to cure me from herpes and behold his herbal medicine work according to him and i am free from herpes now,  Dr Clinton is a wonderful man he is the best doctor I ever met in my life you can also email him via;

  • Guys immediate relieve 400mg aspirin and 1000mg vitamin c take in at once when you have lumbago it helped me I’m so glad I found a cure now, repeat if necessary

  • The “concern” isn’t for what’s best for the suffering, it’s for doctors who don’t feel able to treat their patients. Chronic pain patients often need opioid pain medication to function.

    Unfortunately, the DEA and policymakers have created a system where chronic pain patients and patients in end of life care are often unable to get treatment (or adequate treatment) for pain and suffering. In an effort to reduce illicit opioid and prescription opioid use, and treat opioid addicts, they’ve attacked people who are most vulnerable. Chronic pain patients have the lowest rate of addiction among all patient populations, at 0.3%, and yet we’re being punished for the negative choices of others. We should all be able to get the medicines we need to function and enjoy life as much as possible.

    In my case, I was hit by an 18-wheeler and then fractured my spine in a cycling accident. I’ve been bedridden for years, unable to get any opioid pain medication (after exhausting all allopathic treatments and alternative treatments). My husband has cancer and has also been denied opioid pain medication. Instead, he was told to use distraction, massage, acupuncture magnets, meditation, hypnosis… And if none of those worked, they said he should try “acceptance therapy” and psychotropic medicines.

    The only doctors who have a free pass to prescribe opioids (govt issued waiver) are DATA 2000 addiction medicine doctors AND they can ONLY PRESCRIBE OPIOIDS TO OPIOID ADDICTS. Other doctors who would like to treat their patients who are suffering risk DEA raids, loss of livelihood, and even incarceration. It’s ludicrous.

    The CDC had admitted to inflating the numbers of prescription opioid related deaths, illicit drug related overdose and deaths used in combination with other substances, and how numbers are derived. For example, if someone dies with any opioid in their system, it’s counted as an opioid related death. If an 80 year old dies from cancer and has any opioid onboard, it’s a prescription opioid related death. If someone, like Prince, dies with illicit fentanyl onboard (not to mention high doses of 5 other substances) it’s counted as an opioid related death because illicit fentanyl is an analogue of prescription Fentanyl. If a person dies with alcohol, benzodiazipines, illicit fentanyl, heroin, in their system, it’s counted as a prescription opioid death.Again because illicit fentanyl is an analogue of prescription Fentanyl. These faulty reporting methods on which
    policy-makers are basing all the insane laws and guidelines. Obviously, it hasn’t been working. How long will it take for them to come to their senses? With the ignorant, old white guy, reefer madness mentality among our policy-makers, I’m not holding my breath.

  • Hi…
    Respect for selfrespect,
    Complaint to United distance  Nations (Today known as UNs) about to secure lives, living life and rights of citizens  of republic distance nations from monarch or emir containing distance nations those are united.
    Defination of Nation:
    A large body of people united by common descent, history, culture, or language, inhabiting a particular country or territory.
    Without any security for work, It is not considered as domain work (work which is according to governmental procedure.).

    Why satellite humen surveillance of Mr.Suraj Murlidhar Pharande and its sensation to sensable brains and from bioterrorism ( COVID-19 coronavirus infection become as pandemic?) 

    Why peoples in the world are not United to fight against COVID-19 till it causes death?

     Timely report to respective place to cheack status of complaint.

    Donation of rights are worlds biggest crime (an action or omission which constitutes an offence and is punishable by law.)����������

    Crime corrupts every things life.

                               Yours faithfully,

      Mr. Suraj Murlidhar Pharande.

              Respect for selfrespect.

    Spread this message.

    Take care to avoide and spread of pandemic COVID-19 coronavirus infection. Corona virus is not spreading through water such information I read but humen saliva contains 99.5%  of water so use disinfectant in water to avoide COVID-19 coronavirus infection. 

           Respect for selfrespect,

      My name is Mr.Suraj Murlidhar Pharande from Nimbut,Baramati,Pune,Maharastra,Citizen dependent India.

       You well known about me as satellite  humen surveillance and its sensation to sensable brains as like you.

       Write application to IHRC or such organisation which gives relief from such satellite torture to me and you also. If possible then give news about surveillance and its sensation to sensable brains in the world.

      First secure yourself before messaging to another peoples.

        Spread this message to other peoples.

       I know what is tomorrow for this crime?,  They make some laws and restrictions to others for satellite use and maintain there position as like today to do such crime again.

    From childhood I am not known  about what happens with my brain but at starting of teenage and at the 21st year of my life they try to kill me to show you peoples as these things are happened here but these things when I saw on TV as they show me surveillance is going on and every humen sensable brain in the world sense it, but this time span is too and no  government   or peoples complaint against so it stay on but my starting days of teenage too much torture were done by these peoples I felt in exam which causes my educational failure.

      I don’t have right to fullfill my sex need (as it requires partner or I see on internet pornography they impaired my digestion also brain functioning.) At age of 21 in college they do such things with me by satellite and one girl  from thers community come to ask about marriage then they try to kill me as I drink insecticide after that I complete  my master degree they again harash me at college and after completion of degree course I run for job and simultaneously for marriage I register my name    at mali marriage beuro then I contact with girls and there’s parents some positive response I got about marriage in that days I write about surveillance to get relief to NHRC,IHRC and various Presidents and prime ministers of various countries but again they try to kill me but this time they broke my hand and head by 4 persons and admit at mental hospital for six months out of them three months I stay in my house but tablets by force and satellite torture they feed me (by black mailing again we will admit you at mental hospital).

     Today, Neuro phones sound and show name and photo of Mr.Sharad Pawar and his family members and give warn like past we will kill you.

       Because I write about reservation for member of parliament of citizen dependent India and legislative assembly of state for every category that gives for every five years new respective candidate from every community possible  and better regulation as they secure my living life (of every citizen other than elected members) from these elected  members.

    If Monarch ( supreme powers has single monarch onely)  having nation or republic nation supreme powers both have peoples and elected representatives also If these type of two Nations are working together use or safety for that work (and representatives) gain onely by monarch having nation while elected representatives get changed after respective period so efforts and money invested is more of these peoples while assurance of work completion is not there (wastage) but that monarch can interfere with regulatory affairs of republic nation (People’s know why representatives  newly elected is necessary, for regulation onely.) as today.

       Whole this directs to create a social hindrance for those peoples who are not in theres fever to use there rights govern by government and always fight to represent (To stay with they without any means of living life I.e.onely life.).Divine power gives meaning about rights of living life onely thers genes have while others are retainers or slaves (others are alive because of there means onely) for they. 

     Timely report to respective place to cheack status of complaint.

    Donation of rights are worlds biggest crime (an action or omission which constitutes an offence and is punishable by law.)����������

  • We need those med yall crazy cus you don’t have chronic pain I know is wrong but the pain is to much that I will kill myself if I don’t take them only people that don’t have pain make this video n they don’t have chronic pain come on please stop the bs you don’t know how it feel

  • to prevent back pain i think is to avoid not only to the food that we eat but also in some daily routine the we used to do because some patient don’t know why they got back pain what they do not not it trigger in some positioning of our body would probably occur back pain somehow.

  • I know I am turning this into a “political” direction, but if Trump is re-elected, things will just get much worse for chronic pain patients. His complete lack of humanity, empathy, and ethics have cost so many people their lives. There are people who are bedridden, who live in constant agony. Instead, Trump is working with PROP and Kolodny to take what little relief anyone has completely away. This has been an absolute nightmare for me, and my mother, who suffers terribly. We have no rights. We have been reduced to “drug seekers” and “addicts” because we desire relief from illness and injury. Trump has damaged the field of pain management beyond repair. I can’t stand him.

  • https://taphpharma.com/shop/oxycontin-80mg/ so many people have different experience as far as this drug is concern but to me, oxycontin, oxycodone and fentanyl are the best pain meds of all time. I have lived the pass 8 years of my life under these drugs, thank God for it. i can not do without this drug and i believe there are several out there who can not do without it.

  • What I love is that get these idiot doctors and others who will drink the Kool-Aid but they don’t dare put someone like me up to talk about what the so-called War on Drugs and so-called opioid epidemic is. That’s been almost 20 years fighting this war and I would like to take the time right now to congratulate drugs for winning the war on drugs because it was lost before I ever got in the fight. This is about one thing plain and simple control. Controlling the mass a people and how much money do they spend and or make.

  • As an intractable pain patient you have no idea what people like you have done to me. I understand there is problem with opioids but over 80% of deaths are from black market fentanyl not prescription medications.

    Doctors and our government are responsible for essentially MURDERING pain patients throughout America.

  • Errr…yeap to all of that, but…who was it that dished out the opiods in the first place? And though it’s easy to say it may take some time to recover, inbetween times you may lose your ability to earn income and keep the roof over your and your family’s head. Not only that, but many in the field of pain management don’t hold the same opinions, so you become a batting ball between them about what treatment should and shouldn’t be done.

    Sorry, but the quality of research seems to be decreasing in this area and people…medical practitioners… jump from one new theory to another, just like they did with opiods and many other examples, incl. Radium with its health properties…that turned out to be death sentences.

  • The epidemic is caused by junkies who take heroin and other illegal drugs-some laced with Fentanyl. Fuck you and this fucking propaganda! Signed, A person who’s not being properly treated for severe chronic pain.
