Research published in the  Lancet shows that: Paracetamol with low back pain is not better than a placebo and does not contribute to reducing pain, improving sleep or the quality of live. Still many physicians prescribe paracetamol for reducing pain in the lower back.
 
From the view of hypnotherapy a person has a great influence on the feeling of pain. The subconscious mind can be used to reduce or eliminate pain using self hypnosis. Self hypnosis can be learned in one session and is effective in reducing stress and very helpful in reducing or eliminating pain. That hypnosis works for pain reduction is demonstrated by the fact that it is used for anesthesia by local hospitals in England, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and Italy.
