In brief: Depends
If you are not have any issues or if the issues are stable and mild (like a backache that does not interfere with activities, lifestyle), no follow-up is needed.
If you are having new or worsening neurological symptoms (radiating leg pain, numbness, tingling, weakness; trouble emptying the bladder), see a spinal specialist.
