141. Opioids for low back pain.

Opioids for low back pain. Back pain affects most adults, causes disability for some, and is a common reason for seeking healthcare. In the United States, opioid prescription for low back pain has increased, and opioids are now the most commonly prescribed drug class. More than half of regular opioid users report back pain. Rates of opioid prescribing in the US and Canada are two to three times higher than in most European countries. The analgesic efficacy of opioids for acute back pain (...) is inferred from evidence in other acute pain conditions. Opioids do not seem to expedite return to work in injured workers or improve functional outcomes of acute back pain in primary care. For chronic back pain, systematic reviews find scant evidence of efficacy. Randomized controlled trials have high dropout rates, brief duration (four months or less), and highly selected patients. Opioids seem to have short term analgesic efficacy for chronic back pain, but benefits for function are less clear

The differential diagnosis is complex since etiologies include trauma, neurologic and degenerative disc disease, spondyloarthropathies, and other musculoskeletal and inflammatory conditions. LBP may not always be accurately diagnosed by the reference standards, physical examination, and plain x-rays. Other commonly used imaging tests
