    (As Treatment of Activity Intolerance is Activity) 
  In the absence of Red Flags, treatment is similar for most patients with activity intolerance due to an acute episode of low back symptoms (Handout 1:  Back problems?).  After assuring the patient that there is no hint of a dangerous problem and that a rapid recovery is expected, the goals are to provide accurate patient information about low back problems, to help provide comfort by means of symptom control methods, and to recommend activity modifications.
