We are all likely to experience some back pain at some time in our lives. Usually the pain subsides without any medical treatment but there are times when you should
make an appointment with a specialist in back care. It does not take much to strain your back; sometimes a poor night’s sleep or a little too much activity can trigger pain in the spine. Most people who have back pain are better within three weeks with some rest, over the counter pain relief medication and some appropriate gentle stretching and exercise. However, in certain cases medical attention is the best option.
If you experience the following symptoms, it would be appropriate to consult a physician specializing in spine care at North Star Medical Center.
