For acute short-term pain – for example, for backache or joint pain -- opioids should be limited to three days of treatment and be given in the lowest effective dose possible. The prescription should be continued only if the patient shows significant improvement, say the new guidelines that do not apply to treating pain from cancer, other debilitating diseases and end-of-life care, where strong opiates are necessary.

The CSP said that offering patients better access to physiotherapists would allow GPs to save money and spend more time with other patients.
The CSP has launched a new online Physiotherapy Cost Calculator to show how much GPs can save, which says that a typical GP practice provides 249 appointments a week for musculoskeletal conditions at a cost of £6,346.40 a week, whereas it would cost a physiotherapist £3,800.47 to see the same number.
Karen Middleton, chief executive of the CSP, said: “Both GPs and patients are concerned about the inadequate length of appointments. But, it doesn’t have to be this way. “Expanding the number of physiotherapists working in GP surgeries - and giving patients with musculoskeletal conditions the option of seeing them first could add on average five minutes to appointments.”
A pilot scheme is already in place in West Cheshire to allow patients to see a physiotherapist as a first point of contact.
During a three-month pilot over 700 patients accessed the service who would otherwise have seen a GP. It has now been expanded to cover all 36 GP practices in West Cheshire after receiving funding from the Prime Minister’s Challenge Fund.
Dr Maureen Baker, chair of the Royal College of General Practitioners, said: “Whilst the services GPs and physiotherapists provide complement each other, they are very different, so whilst we would welcome better integration between the two we would recommend that any self-referral schemes reflect local needs and are continuously evaluated.
“We would also need assurances that patients do not fall prey to providers who are not accredited by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, whose members are trained to the highest standards and have the skills to identify health problems that go beyond musculoskeletal conditions.”

“Physiotherapy plays a vital role in treating patients suffering from orthopedic or nerve problems and helps in preventing the condition from deteriorating and reaching the surgery stage,” says the survey, cited by local media on Sunday.
The study has shown that 81 percent of physiotherapy experts at various centers around the Kingdom emphasize on listing physiotherapy as one of the major services offered by health centers affiliated with the Ministry of Health.
The study, carried out by Dr. Hisham Alhadairi, who has a Ph.D in physiotherapy, and Hani Alabbad, a master’s degree holder in physiotherapy, was published in The Journal Of Physical Therapy Science.
It says physiotherapy departments at health centers provide primary care for early diagnosed cases and prevent complications and extra costs.
The two researchers said that one of the strategies of the Health Ministry is to provide health care by establishing primary care centers that offer preventive and rehabilitation services. This is reflected in the increased number of primary health care centers from 1,925 in the year 2017 to 2,259 in 2012.
The researchers said the second biggest sector of those who visit outpatient clinics in hospitals have bone or nerve ailments because of sedentary lifestyle. Over 60 percent of Saudis indulge in very little physical activity, which poses more burdens to health care, the study said.

USA Study: Visiting a Physiotherapist first is cost effective and reduces the use of costly healthcare services
Since low back pain is a very common occurrence in the healthcare setting and a likely contribution to disability, these findings are key to reducing medical spending across the industry. In fact, $90.6 billion in direct healthcare costs are spent on treating back pain throughout the United States.
The study illustrates that patients who obtained physical therapy services from a clinic owned by their original physician received twice as many PT visits as compared to patients who were referred to physical therapy not affiliated with the referring surgeon. The therapy was also less customized and less intensive, the researchers found.
