Emergency conditions need immediate attention and typically are referred to the emergency room. While there are numerous conditions, a few are listed below:

  • Cauda equina syndrome —spinal and leg pain, neurological symptoms, changes in bladder/bowel, or saddle anesthesia 
  • Metastatic spinal cord compression—symptoms include spine pain with the band-like referral, gait changes, and escalating pain
  • Spinal infection—symptoms include spinal pain, fever, worsening neurological symptoms 
  • Septic arthritis—should be expected until proven otherwise if the patient is unwell, with or without a fever, and sudden onset of a hot, painful joint and multi-directional restriction in movement
