Back pain is common and very rarely an indication that something is seriously wrong with your health. But there are a few “red flag” signs that everyone should be aware of. These are signs and symptoms that may indicate to your doctor or chiropractor that you have an underlying medical condition.
You should seek immediate medical attention if you experience any of the following symptoms:
Saddle anaesthesia, which is a nerve related symptoms in the area of your seat. With this condition, you are likely to notice numbness located at the bottom of your pelvis and around the area of your seat.
Bladder or bowel problems.
Weakness and numbness, especially if it is severe or keeps getting worse.
