When You Should See A Spine Specialist

Most episodes of neck and back pain are not serious, and fortunately, they can be treated quickly and simply. However, you would benefit greatly from visiting a specialist if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Back or neck discomfort that lasts longer than two weeks.
  • Symptoms including aching, or stabbing that radiates from the arms or legs.
  • Your leg, foot, groin or rectal area feels numb.
  • Symptoms are so intense that you can’t move around.
  • Numbness or tingling in the arms or legs.
  • Weakness in your arms or legs.
  • Trouble walking or maintaining your balance.
  • You have trouble sleeping because the symptoms wake you up at night.
  • Trauma or an accident that causes significant back or neck injury.
  • Chronic neck or back condition that interferes with routine, everyday activity.
  • Your symptoms don’t seem to be getting better after two or three weeks.
