Back pain can be a sign of many other medical conditions, including arthritis, pregnancy, kidney stones, infections, tumors and stress.  That’s why you should see a doctor if your pain is particularly bad or lasts for more than a few days. Do not use any complementary health practice to replace conventional medical care or to postpone seeing a health care provider about pain or any other medical condition.  If you have a medical condition, talk to your health care provider.  Tell all your health care providers about any health practices you use. Give them a full picture of what you do to manage your health. This will help ensure coordinated and safe care. A trip to the doctor is probably a good idea if you have numbness or tingling, if your pain is severe and doesn’t improve with medication and rest, or if you have pain after a fall or an injury. It is also important to see your doctor if you have pain along with any of the following problems: trouble urinating; weakness, pain, or numbness in your legs; fever; or unintentional weight loss. Such symptoms could signal a serious problem that requires treatment soon.

Complementary and alternative medical treatments are not a complete substitute for conventional care. Relying exclusively on these treatments and avoiding conventional medical care may be harmful or, in some circumstances (for example, a severe injury or an infection), have serious health consequences. Get doctor recommendations for medications or complementary and alternative medical treatments, such as manipulation of the spine, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (mild electrical pulses), acupuncture (thin needles used for pain relief), yoga, etc. Everyone’s body is different, and treatment should be modified based on individual abilities. Carefully selecting a practioner who is experienced with and attentive to your needs is an important step toward helping you heal safely. 

Be aware that some dietary supplements may interact with medications or other supplements, may have side effects of their own, or may contain potentially harmful ingredients not listed on the label. Also keep in mind that most supplements have not been tested in pregnant women, nursing mothers, or children.
