A recent review of 13 randomized trials (high quality studies) found that even though acetaminophen (aka paracetamol) is the most common pain reliever in the USA, it is a poor choice for both low back pain and most hip pain. Through in the strong risks of liver failure in repetitive use, and it's a no-brainer to just say "No!"
Excerpt from the study results:
" There was “high quality” evidence that paracetamol is ineffective for reducing pain intensity... and disability ... or improving quality of life ... in the short term in people with low back pain. For hip or knee osteoarthritis there was “high quality” evidence that paracetamol provides a significant, although not clinically important, effect on pain"
