In brief: For severe pain

Back pain is one of the most common reasons patients see physicians in the us.
If you're having numbness, pain down your legs, weakness, weight loss, fevers, or worsening of any related symptoms - i recommend seeing a spinal specialist in a timely fashion.

If the pain is severe or if you have pain, tingling down your legs it is time to see an orthopedist.
