Back Pain: When to Seek Immediate Help

Here at our Stoke on Trent chiropractors, we are highly experienced in successfully treating many different types of back pain. We also pride ourselves on educating our patients on potentially serious warning signs to look out for.

While most cases of back pain do not have a sinister cause, we strongly advise that you phone your doctor immediately if you experience any of the below symptoms.

  • New, sudden or worsening loss of bowel or bladder control
  • New, sudden or worsening numbness in your legs
  • New, sudden or worsening weakness in your legs
  • Difficulty standing up
  • New or increased back pain accompanied by fever, painful urination, or any other signs of a urinary tract infection.

Even though serious causes of back pain are rare, it’s important to listen to your body and contact your healthcare professional if you are at all concerned about your symptoms.
