Lumbar Spine Osteochondrosis

Lumbar of the underlying disease, actually osteochondrosis back pain – one of the most common forms. Lumbar spine osteochondrosis the symptoms are determined to the same extent Standard and in men, and in women, manifests itself in the Form of pain in the sacral region, which in their symptomatology and in the lower extremities, which often defines itself in the patient as a "pinched lumbar nerve".


General Description

The most commonly considered Form of osteochondrosis develops on the background of injuries of the back and the seat lifestyle, or automatically in the group of risk for the development of this disease, the people, characteristics of professional activity which implies to drop a load on the back. And it's just the office is not salaried, the certainly to this group, but also carriers, construction workers, workers in Service (a waiter, for example), drivers, etc.

Plays an important role and the factor of inheritance in the context of the examination of the chest osteochondrosis. Here, not much, not little, but around 60% probability is present, if the presence of the disease in close relatives. On the Rest of the impact of environmental factors must influence, in one way or another on the spine.

Lumbar spine osteochondrosis how other of its forms, about your pain of varying severity, can be worn after sleep or prolonged stay in the same Position (prolonged sitting), as well as burning and sharp. In the latter case, they emerge with prolonged adoption of the not-too-comfortable position while impossibility, in such a Situation, the implementation of the measures sought to establish, in order for this pose excluded, together with the load, there will be expansion cards. The actual pain roots as a result of entrapment with the appropriate action of the nerves, as well as to irritation of the nerves in the spine, irritation of the ligaments and muscles (centered in the area of Innervation, i.e., the arrangement of the nervous Department of the relevant Region in his control) and oedema.

It is important to note that it occurs in an isolated Form of this type of osteochondrosis only rarely, because usually the course of the disease can be combined with the symptoms of osteochondrosis of DM, we consider it in our next article.

The common and the earliest Symptom, up-to-date for all forms of osteoarthritis, as we have already noted, is the Manifestation of the pain, in this case, depending on the localization, D. pain in H. in the lower back. Dissemination (irradia) there may be pain in the hips and buttocks, as well as on the lower legs (on the part of the outer surface).

Is used to specify osteochondrosis of the term in more than one of his maximized variant (degenerative-dystrophic lesions), up-to-date, for disc, is actually a significant in the variety of complex pathological conditions implies, will be brought directly in connection with different types of structures of the spine (spine), namely with the discs, joints and osteophytes in the connection. The same problems which have a direct impact on the defeat of the hard disk, the bulge and discogenic pain.Types of osteochondrosis, and the area of concentration.

Protrusion in the case of osteochondrosis of the lumbar spine

A protrusion in the us area of interest to develop, most frequently, in addition, there is a bulge are the cause of pain in the lower back. Even the cross, which, because of its location and characteristics, is in the highest degree Standard is prone to these or other functional problems.

That is, if you highlight on the one hand, this statement, that our focus directly relates to the lumbar spine Department, or exactly on it, a significant part of the loads accounted for. If, on the other hand, one can notice that there is a significant Amplitude of movements, also here it is necessary, on this, the lumbar Department. Damage in view of this, the greatest inclination of the tabs) (also in the us interest, it is necessary, on a data carrier, the centre in the lumbar spine. In addition, we must not forget that changes in the discs occur in this and, of course, in other areas, including, and against the background of age-related degenerative processes.

We our readers were to remember, what a bulge is. The connection of the drives to each other in the spinal tissue through the drives on the Basis of cartilage. The main components of the intervertebral disc is a gelatinous core, and fibrous ring, the fixation is ensured in the framework of the intervertebral disc. Effects of certain factors and conditions opportunity to provoke the fracture of these rings, in the background, which, in turn, a projection to the outside of the Kernel. In the result of this process, an inguinal hernia develops. The same applies to a bulge, then you have developed already to a similar course of the process, but without accompanying rupture of the rings – in this case, it is not easy dilution is governed by the fracture, because the core bulges directly through the Ring. Actually, plump and defined as a projection.

With regard to the symptomatology, a protrusion, it is reflected in the following:

  • the feeling of stiffness in the lower back;
  • Pain in the lumbar spine;
  • Back pain is chronic in nature;
  • Sciatica;
  • Numbness, pain, tingling of the fingers, on the legs, in the feet;
  • Malfunctions at the water, in rare cases, the observed pathology) to let (.

Mainly to address the protrusion of an intervertebral disc, the Department made a conservative treatment. Meanwhile, a significant bulging in the development is not often accompanied by severe symptoms, to treatment, in this case, is enough, without surgical intervention.

Lumbar Spine Osteochondrosis Symptoms

Pain in this Form of osteochondrosis is manifested in different variations of intensity. Thus, it may be, pain is pain, mainly after sleep or after a long sit, but sharp pain and sharp in appearance. In this expression, the last often there is at the Moment to an uncomfortable posture, without the possibility to straighten up. Each Option pain sensation directly connected to be provided with the effects, the ends of the nerve, with swelling of the muscles, the annoyance, and pinched, the roots of the nerves. The pain associated with irritation of the ligaments in the lumbar spine in the Innervation of his nerve endings.

Increased pain in the lower back at the considered Form of osteochondrosis is celebrated when coughing and sneezing, even in the case of a committed upper body movements (especially when bending over to heated seats in front).

Manifested lumbar osteochondrosis can also, apart from pain in the lower back, and also in the Form of sensory disturbances, celebrated in these or those areas (the leather, the lower half of the trunk, leg muscles). The weakening of the tendon reflexes in the legs, or even disappear is excluded. In General, the development of osteochondrosis curvature in the lumbar spine releases.

Starting from the concrete level of the current curvature, the separation of osteochondrosis of the following types:

  • Kyphosis – in this case, a flattening of the lumbar spine, and often straightened him back to me;
  • Lordosis – straightened spine to the seat heating front;
  • Scoliosis - the spine is curved to the left or to the right.

A pinched belonging to the spinal nerve roots as a result of the development of intervertebral disc degeneration in the lumbar spine is often defined as a series of specific disorders, namely, disorders of defecation or urination, disorders in connection with sensitivity in the genital area or the Perineum.

In General, the pain (and worse) by the action of the during the training. Painful reaction in this case can be celebrated and after this load, and after some time, with the time of their exposure. Especially the complaints of patients are reduced to this bill, to the emergence of dull and aching pain in the lower back, and in some cases there are step by step, what is defined as low back pain. In addition, complaints may arise, to raise it to the emergence of pain in leg with your gain at the Moment, try something heavy (lumbago). The same goes for sneezing and coughing, bumpy ride, with changes to the occupied hull rules, as well as longer stays in the same Position of the body.

As a result of the tightening of the considered disease a constant and strong tension on the part of the muscles of the back, what is sought in the impossibility of the implementation of the measures observed to be erect, or even to breathe. Each movement is accompanied by the increase of the pain. In addition, even in the case of low dwell time of the patient under the terms of the cold, and there is a acute lumbar pain (also defined as "lumbago").

The symptoms of lumbar degenerative disc disease are manifested in the following:

  • Violation of the sensitivity on the part of the thighs, buttocks, lower legs, on the feet (a little less celebrated);
  • Cramps arteries Stop, increased coldness of the legs;
  • Tingling, occurs in the legs, tingling;
  • scaly skin and dryness in the area in which the loss of sensitivity or pain is usually celebrated;
  • Disorders of sweating.

As the unpleasant in the significant complications that appear on the background of osteochondrosis, you can highlight the instability of the spine, in which the drive to fix the right vortex. This, in turn, downhill provoked the "" in the influence of gravity, lumbar spine with the sacrum at the load on the lumbar Department. In the future is not only unpleasant injury, and violation of the most dangerous and concerning the work of the internal organs. may develop Especially "suffer" the motschepolowaja System, it can be seen in men in the Form of problems with potency, and women – in the Form of problems in connection with the adnexa, of the Uterus and of the ovaries.

Symptoms of lumbar degenerative disc disease

In accordance with the most comprehensive classification, identified a number of specific syndromes, relevant for lumbar degenerative disc disease. In particular, the following syndromes belong to:

  • Syndromes Reflex to lyumboishalhiya, low back pain and lumbago heard;
  • radicular syndromes of the spine (or discogenic) the Ilio-lumbar-sciatica, in which accompanied by predominantly damage to the first sacral spine, or the spine of the fifth lumbar vertebra;
  • Radicular syndromes-circulation – manifests itself in the Form of a constriction of the blood vessels radiculo ischemia (in particular, the feeling of pressure veins or arteries) are subject to, wherein the pressing is carried out at the same time with the spine of the book.

Select the text that the listed syndromes.

Lumbodynia implies, in particular, a chronic type of pain, a step-wise manner after a long adoption the awkward position of the body, or after prolonged sitting, as well as to the effects on the body and a certain area after Training.

Lumbago manifests itself in the Form of acute lumbar pain, as indicated by a "witch-shot", in the first lumbago occurs at the Moment of lifting heavy loads, or by an unfortunate in the execution of the movement. Sometimes lumbago, it is also noted after a cough or sneeze.

Diseases, accompanied the lumbar spine osteochondrosis

Lumbar spine osteochondrosis occurs not only in connection with pain and other symptoms, but also in a complex with some of the typical diseases of the internal organs.

So, in the order of more than 30% of the patients with relevance for the clinic, of the lumbar intervertebral disc degeneration indicate that it is tract a of these or those problems with the liver or with the functions of the gastro-intestinal. The fact that this provokes the presence of a disease of the digestive tract, the pancreas or the liver, with pain impulses, the tension of the blood vessels and the muscles and spasms, allowing the state of lack of oxygen with the simultaneous development in certain areas of the body's degenerative process. Exacerbation of the process, it comes to metabolic disorders, which is a peculiarity of this type of diseases.

In addition, as we noted previously, lower back pain can to the development of the disease in the area of the organs of the small pelvis. Women could construct with such a disease as an inflammation of the Appendix (which is defined as pelvic inflammatory disease), and the men in turn, all the "charms" of Prostatitis, i.e. inflammation of the prostate experience.

Manifestations of lumbar degenerative disc stagnates degeneration phenomena accompany in the pelvic area, which develop in consequence of the above-mentioned diseases, including chronic colitis, hemorrhoids and constipation.


Predominantly treatment of osteochondrosis is a multi-components and is quite complicated in its implementation. Mostly all the measures of the therapy will be reduced to the following points:

  • drug treatment;
  • if necessary, surgical treatment;
  • Diet;
  • physiotherapy.

Exacerbation of the disease requires, above all, the compliance of the patient on bed rest. The most important recommendation in this part – rigid/resistant sleeper. Extremely expressed in the manifestations of the seizures, the need for a mini paint-motor capacity, and in the quickest possible access to the appropriate specialists. The emergence of the symptoms, which must point to a possible relevance of lumbar osteochondrosis, requires the treatment of a neurologist.
