Antibiotics For Back Pain

Antibiotics For Back Pain


Susan brady’s back pain was once so
severe the doctors were planning a major operation to fuse together her spine. But then one consultant diagnosed a
bacterial infection between her bones and prescribed a long course of
antibiotics followed by a minor procedure on her disc. Scans show the infection’s gone as has
much to the pain. Now new research suggests antibiotics
could cure forty percent of people with chronic low back pain. I’ve gone through so much with my back
found it very soon debilitating and it really kinda condenses your life. So, when someone says you can use
antibiotics for 100 days in it will get better this infection hence
the back pain will start go and also help sciatica, I thought kinda
seemed a bit too good to be true. The research is so radical but it could
force a complete rethink on how back pain is treated and spare
many patients surgery. The theory is that a slipped disc allows
bacteria to enter the spine and only by treating the infection will
the pain go. What we see is a patient before they had
antibiotic treatment. This Danish doctor studied 162 patients with eighty percent cured. But she’s had
to endure the ridicule of skeptical colleagues. These people suffer constantly, they have
constant pain, so this is a very cheap treatment it’s
very very efficient. The alternative is a life on painkillers. So why did you give them
antibiotics, this special subgroup, for 100 days get
back on life and give them, you know, get them to
go to work and things like this so that they have a happy life again.
Other doctors warn more research is needed to confirm the findings and the caution antibiotics must be
used with care. One of the problems with antibiotic
resistance spreading in all sorts medical context
is the fact that people have used and doctors have
prescribed too many antibiotics in the past, and, but obviously if this is a bacterial infection that is causing these problems
and it is appropriate to use antibiotics. Susan’s back is now so much
better that she’s planning a trip to Paris, a mini-break, only possible because of the
antibiotics.
