When Should You See a Back Specialist for Low Back Pain

Usually normal lower back pain is not going to require that you see a back specialist in Brisbane. The pain will generally go away on it's own. However, if the pain does not get any better after a couple of days and you feel as you can't do normal daily activities, you might want to call your doctor.

If you are not sure of when you should call your doctor and see if you need to see a back specialist in Brisbane, here is a guideline that might help you make that determination.

  • If you have numbness in your buttocks or legs.
  • If you have weakness in the legs to where you cannot bend your foot upward, get out of a chair without help or climb stairs.
  • If you pain increases, have a fever, it's painful to urinate.
  • Have long term back pain that all of a sudden gets a lot worse and it wasn't caused because of more activity.
  • If you have extremely bad pain that doesn't improve after a few days of some home treatment.
  • The pain wakes you in your sleep.
  • Pain does not go away after two weeks of home treatment.
If there are signs of very serious problems you may have to skip a back specialist in Brisbane all together and call for emergency help if you should happen to have any of the following signs or symptoms:
  • The back pain happens with chest pains or other heart attack symptoms.
  • If you were in a car accident that seemed minor or had a fall or a direct blow to the spine and show the following symptoms:
    1. Unable to move any body part.
    2. Very severe back or neck pain.
    3. Weakness, tingling or severe numbness in the arms and legs.
    4. You can't walk or stand at all because of overall body weakness and not just because the pain is too bad.
    5. Sudden loss of bowel or bladder control even if you have not been injured.
NOTE: If you are having back pain, the best question to ask yourself is why is it happening? This could be the first step to helping the problem.
