Yes, it's of concern. I need some more facts. Bend slowly forwards, then backwards, then to the side and slightly backwards. What happens in your back and leg? Do it carefully.
Then go to Chiropractic Help home page and type Slump Test into the Search function in the navigation bar on the right. What do you feel?
Something to watch out for. If the knee starts to buckle, on the stairs or even walking, then you definitely shouldn't delay. Also, when walking are you having difficulty dorsiflexing your foot. Raising the toes. Are you tripping?
Take a pin and poke your legs, comparing sides. Try and isolate as exactly as you can where that numbness is. Does it go below the knee? Where?
The rule of thumb is, get a professional opinion without delay if the pain in your back starts spreading down your leg.
Let me know the answers to these questions. Keep to the same thread.
