Avoid imaging in cases of uncomplicated low back pain (unless there are specific clinical indications). Use acetaminophen, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or muscle relaxants for short-term relief of acute nonspecific low back pain. Consider matching specific physical therapy options to the patient's history and exam findings.
