The radical findings follow years of debate about the cause of such discomfort and the best way to treat it.
One leading neurosurgeon said the finding was a turning point so important that the researchers behind it deserved a Nobel prize.
But infection experts cautioned against widespread long-term prescribing of antibiotics, which could increase drug resistance across the population, triggering a rise in superbugs.
Around five million people in Britain will suffer chronic back pain at some point in their lives, and the cause is often not clear.

But we can’t have antibiotics anymore....gov. Studies say they are bad...and we can’t have pain pills either..gov. Studies say they are bad.
Obamacare plan......shut up,suffer in silence and then die..please...and hurry it up..we are going broke.
I was just thinking the other day about ulcers (no real reason). They used to be a big deal, right? No real cure? Then somebody figured out that antibiotics could fix ‘em.
Some ulcers, but not others. Depends on the cause.
My back pains went away about two weeks after I started eating low-carb.
Keep a record of what you eat and see if there is a correlation of your back pain with particular foods.
I find ice cream will do it.
It was for me, I had it for years, made some adjustments and the problem went away.
But the article says 40pc, so that’s a better than one out of three chance that if you have chronic, debilitating back pain, this can help. Maybe even cure it!
A good friend of mine has this type of problem, he doesn’t remember ever doing anything that injured it in the first place. Most of the time he’s OK, but a couple times a month he’s pretty out of it.
Back pains are one of the worst. There’s literally almost no way you can move at all that doesn’t stress the back at least a little.
My chair is a recliner and I keep it pushed back some so pressure is not on the lower back. I cannot sit on a hard surface very long or the pain is very bad and I can't walk the next day. It's like bone on bone and a pill isn't going to keep that from happening.
They have to be talking about a condition that is not degenerated discs.
What we’re talking here is insanity!
The Med Mafia is constantly looking for ways to shove more deadly drugs into very misled people.
Let Yehova deal with them in the most appropriatwe way.
One problem, it’s in the Telegraph, which means they just finished making it up.
No, actually they are talking about an issue that degenerates disks. You may be in luck.
>> “One problem, its in the Telegraph, which means they just finished making it up.” <<
That’s true for all of them.
They love to repeat nonsense from the Med Mafia.
Correct. The inflammation caused by the bacteria and the toxins can inhibit or prevent the natural healing process from doing it’s job.
>> “You may be in luck.” <<
Or, more likwly, she could have her immune system wiped out looking for a shot in the dark.
I know a woman whose back started hurting in October 2011. She was in excrutiating pain and ended up in a wheelchair. She was hospitalised once and they gave her antibiotics and she actually got better but as soon as she was off of them she got worse again. She told the doctor and he said that he couldn’t in good conscience give her more because the tests showed no infection.
I couldn’t believe it! She went through a year of pain until they finally found that she had a staph infection in her spine, it had eaten away part of it and she is still rehabbing.
I would have gone to Mexico and gotten the antibiotics myself.
Wow....excruciating truth right there of how dangerous group think science is to humanity.
My back is a train wreck, no antibiotic is going to make any difference.
Stretching, music, humor, and prayer all get remarkable results, though.
Second string remedies: back rubs and an occasional 500mg magnesium salicylate (formerly Doan’s Pills).
Well, if your back pain is caused by being bed-ridden because of some infection, then the antibiotic could resolve the infection, and clear up the back problem. Otherwise, it sounds like a big load of Bravo Sierra. They always seems to find a reason for us to take another pill.
My back has gotten better ever since I started taking steps to make it and the supporting muscles stronger and more limber. This requires all of 10-15 minutes of stretching before I go to bed. The Horror! If history is any guide, I will gradually fall out of the habit of stretching, push myself too hard running, and hurt my back again. They don’t have a pill to fix that.
