New ANZCA Recommendations – Don’t Use Drugs, See a Chiropractor!
Brand New Guidelines have been issued by the Faculty of Pain and Medicine in the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) for the treatment of chronic pain and disability.
The new recommendations will have wide reaching effects and impact all medical practitioners (GP’s) and allied health professionals in Australia and New Zealand.
The guidelines relate to the management of all forms of pain. From back, neck and spinal pain, non-cancer pain, to those with neuropathic pains.
What is interesting is that Chiropractors have been championing most of these recommendations for decades.
The most commonly used medication for back and neck pain has been proven to be useless. No better than placebo or a sugar pill.
Despite being ‘the’ recommended front line treatment for back pain in the ‘scientific’ community for over 50 years – no one has really bothered to check it.

Patients should always avoid or be very judicious in the use of Paracetamol, as accidental overdose can easily occur when you are struggling with pain resulting in liver failure and even death.
