Surgery Better For Lumbar Pain

Surgery is twice as effective as therapy and drugs at treating lumbar (i.e. back) pain. (Original source here).

Since this finding was contrary to my own personal experience and previous research, I followed the link and then read more about the condition involved. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/001260.htm

It's too general to say that surgery is better for lumbar pain. Other conditions can be involved in lumbar pain.
