I would go with Low on the table of risk based on the presenting problem
Acute uncomplicated illness or
injury, eg, cystitis, allergic
rhinitis, simple sprain
And I would give 3 dx points since they advised the patient to change the way they are doing things I think it is safe to say this issue would not have resolved on its on and therefore doesn't qualify as self limited/minor and it is a new problem.
Just my take on it,
