    Hi A Danish study is being circulated and published that mentions strongly that people with chronic back {disc} problems are helped by a derivation of Augmentin –Seems bacteria has been found in discs and this drug used {Bio-Clavid } was very successful in alleviating a tremendous amount of back pain for many folks –Bio Clavid in Europe is Augmentin here —

    Hi Richie,

    Thanks for sharing…this is a newer study, though abx have been studied before in this context. In Britain, they found that biaxin (aka clarithromycin) also relieved sciatica, caused by the bacteria p. acnes. Interesting, huh?

    Here is an article about what you have shared, if anyone is interested:

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-05-07/antibiotics-may-relieve-chronic-lower-back-pain-cases.html

    Bio-clavid is the euro version of augmentin, which is slightly different from amoxicillin:

    Kind of ironic that studies such as these are tying spinal inflam to infection, but rheumies still deny any bacterial causation for rheumatic diseases:

    Excerpt from article above:

    “The findings support previous research that has linked some cases of chronic back pain to bacterial infection.”
