    They seem to be saying that lower back pain is often caused by a bacterial infection which can be treated with antibiotics.

    I thought this was an interesting article since chronic back pain has been the target for CBT.

    And has been reported in the press as being all in the mind. Its also often pushed into a medically unexplained disorders catagory along with ME. So its good that some scientists are finding some reasons.

    There have been several studies on modic and and antibiotics over about a decade. This article above is about the latest papers in the series.
    We have seen several danish and norwegian papers on modic and antibiotics (long-term antibiotics) over several years

    here a norwegian one, with image of modic
