When to Seek Medical Care
Most adults will have an episode or multiple episodes of low back pain during their lives. Most of these episodes do not require a visit to the doctor. The majority of low back pain resolves without any treatment or with over-the-counter medications and a short period of rest.
However, any person with the "red flag symptoms" (the warning signs listed above) should be evaluated by a doctor.
