Dr. Wang shares when women should see an expert if they are experiencing back pain.
It’s very common to get back pain and so, if you have been lifting heavy objects or moving into a new house and you get some back pain, it’s probably not a big deal, but if it persists, if it goes on for more than a week or two and it gets worse and it’s not getting better, you should definitely see a health care professional.
