    Re: Red Flags in Manual Therapy

    Red flags are indicators of increased risk of serious pathology — but they do not always indicate a specific condition.

    Further investigation and referral are indicated if one or more red flags are present.

    Red flags for spine fracture

    Flags from medical history
    Major trauma such as vehicle accident or fall from a height
    Minor trauma, or even just strenuous lifting, in people with osteoporosis


    Red flags for cancer or infection


    Flags from medical history
    Age over 50 years and new back pain, or age under 20 years
    History of cancer
    Constitutional symptoms, e.g. fever, chills, unexplained weight loss
    Recent bacterial infection (e.g. urinary tract infection)
    Intravenous drug abuse
    Immune suppression
    Pain that worsens when supine; severe night-time pain; thoracic pain

    Flags from physical examination

    Structural deformity

    Red flags for cauda equina syndrome or rapidly progressing neurological deficit

    Flags from medical history


    Saddle anaesthesia
    Recent onset of bladder dysfunction (e.g. urine retention, increased frequency, overflow incontinence)
    Recent onset of faecal incontinence

    Flags from physical examination

    Severe or progressive neurological deficit in the lower extremities
    Unexpected laxity of the anal sphincter
    Perianal/perineal sensory loss
    Major motor weakness: knee extension, ankle plantar eversion, foot dorsiflexion
