Low Back Pain

N.K. Sviridova


Low back pain (LBP) is a major social and economic problem. The prevalence of acute and chronic LBP in adults has doubled in the last decade and continues to grow rapidly in both men and women. LBP has a significant impact on the functional activity as it limits certain kinds of professional activity and is one of the main causes of disability. Given this, the diagnostic evaluation of patients with LBP can be very complex and requires special clinical decisions. When answering the questions about the causes of pain, choosing among several structures, which potentially involved in the formation of LBP, the key factors of this disease should be taken into account, because the wrong diagnosis can lead to therapeutic errors. Based on practical guidelines for the management of LBP, most international experts believe mandatory to use for LBP relief nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which have strong analgesic effect and a strong anti-inflammatory action. We have analyzed a large number of clinical studies that confirm the effectiveness of lornoxicam and its benefits in the treatment of acute pain.
