BACK PAIN -Paracetamol or just Placebo?

Cochrane says -for acute back pain, 4g of paracetamol a day is no better than a placebo although NICE recommends paracetamol as the first-line painkiller for low back pain. The conflicting reports makes for more confusion even as GPs are issuing a staggering 22.9m prescriptions to paracetamol every year.
