Homeopathic Research: Low Back Pain
Research: Homeopathy for chronic low back pain: a prospective observational study with 2 years follow up.
Objectives: To evaluate the details and effects of an individualized homeopathic treatment in patients with chronic low back pain in usual care.
Consecutive patients beginning homeopathic treatment in primary care practices were evaluated over 2 years by using standardized questionnaires.
One hundred twenty-nine adults were treated by 48 physicians. The severity of the diagnoses and complaints showed marked and sustained improvements with large effect sizes. The use of conventional treatment and health services decreased markedly: the number of patients using low back pain-related drugs was half of the baseline.
Discussion: Classic homeopathic treatment represents an effective treatment for low back pain and other diagnoses. It improves health-related QoL and reduces the use of other healthcare services.
