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.

You can take that one to the bank.
Yes I had some bad discs (confirmed by MRI) but was able (via a rather brutal exercise program) to build up enough core strength to lower my pain level 95%.
It took several months, and it wasn’t fun, but I’m forever indebted to the phys therapists on this one.
