Dr. Bart W. Koes, who wrote an editorial accompanying the paper, said that even though the study was large and methodologically sound, it was not necessarily the last word on the subject.
"The fact that it's no more effective than placebo does not mean that it doesn't work for a given patient," said Dr. Koes, a professor of general practice at Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

In an accompanying comment, Bart W. Koes, Ph.D., of Erasmus University in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, wrote that some would argue that the type of spinal manipulation used in this study (mainly low-velocity mobilization) is not similar to high-velocity thrust techniques.
However, he said, randomized trials and a subsequent Cochrane review suggest that neither low-velocity nor high-velocity techniques have more favorable results than the other.
Additionally, the treatments used in this study were largely similar to the use of spinal manipulative therapy in common daily practice, Dr. Koes said.
The important message, he said, is that the management of acute low-back pain in primary care, namely advice and acetaminophen, is sufficient for most patients.
The trial was funded primarily by Australia's National Health and Medical Research Council.Diclofenac was donated by Alphapharm.
Co-author Richard Day, M.D., noted that he was a member of an advisory board for paracetamol for GlaxoSmithKline but that payments went to an audited hospital account for teaching and research purposes.
Dr. Koes, the comment author, declared no conflicts of interest.

"Most people would have thought (acetaminophen) would have some effect, so this was a surprise," said Bart Koes of Erasmus MC University Center in the Netherlands, who co-authored an accompanying commentary. He said doctors should monitor people taking acetaminophen to see if the drug actually works.
