Back Pain: Going to the Doctor

It is time to see a doctor because of back pain if the pain started after you fell or were struck, if you feel weakness, numbness or tingling in legs, if you have bladder or bowel problems and if the pain is getting worse or it is not going away.

Dr. Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist at Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, recommends going to the doctor to make sure there is no fracture or if the alignment of the spine is being kept, for example.
