Osteochondrosis of the lumbosacral spine is very common, as it was in the lower divisions of the highest load on the spine. Characteristic for this type of osteochondrosis or lumbago, backache
Lumbago - bed rest against lumbago
- E is the very situation that on television when the ointment advertise with analgesic properties, such as Fastum gel.
Why start lumbosacral osteochondrosis
Spine in the lumbosacral region experienced the highest load, which is why there often worn spinal discs. Furthermore, the intervertebral discs cartilage layer is relatively thin, and the vertebral bodies are larger than in other parts of the spine. If we add to this bending of the lumbar spine forward (lumbar lordosis), then the exchange rate changes in the intervertebral disks are created all conditions for their bias and prejudice disc displacement of spinal nerve roots extending from the spinal cord (protrusion). Able to finish the severance drives infringement roots and the spinal cord itself (herniated disc).
In connection with these structural features polysegmental osteochondrosis
Osteochondrosis - learn how to properly distribute the weight
lumbar - sacral (with the defeat of several vertebrae) develops more frequently than in other departments (one segment of the spinal cord corresponding to one vertebra). At the same time, in order to avoid abnormal mobility of the spine begins to grow bone and vertebrae are spliced between owl - formed pathological immobility of this department - spondylosis
Spondylosis - when the defense gives up
Which leads to dysfunction of the spine and the organs and tissues that are innervated by spinal nerves pinched.
The symptoms of lumbosacral osteochondrosis
Lumbar sacral osteochondrosis usually begins unnoticed. His first symptoms appear, when changes in the intervertebral discs is already significant. There are aching initially associated with high physical activity or long-term presence in the forced position. And then the pain become permanent.
Pain in the lumbar region and sacrum may be extended to the entire back, but more often they give in the buttock, hamstring, thigh and foot. Increased pain is often associated with a cold. Supercooled - pain in this case become unbearable, the patient can not sleep, forced to constantly look for a position where the pain will be less intense. Aggravation can last from several days to several weeks.
Backache - what is it?
Backache or lumbago - a sudden severe pain in the lumbar region, which develops when the physical strain, awkward turn of the body, after overheating and then cooling. The pain is tearing, throbbing, piercing, shooting character. This leads to the fact that the patient suddenly frozen in a forced position, any attempt of movement increases the pain, there is a muscle spasm of the lumbar region. The pain associated with infringement of spinal nerves.
Episodes of severe pain can stay from several minutes to several days, and then just as suddenly passes. Relieve pain can only absolute physical rest and a horizontal position on the semi-rigid hard, flat surface. Fasting how sharp the pain goes away, a few days or weeks at the waist held light pain, aggravated by coughing, sneezing, any physical action associated with stress.
When stress occurs lumbago long back muscles, which disrupts the movement of the spine as a whole and increases pain. Paresis and paralysis usually does not happen. At rest, the pain is reduced and even completely passes resuming at movements. Over time, the pain becomes chronic recurrent nature, with some aggravation may occur as an acute lumbago.
Symptoms of osteoarthritis lumbosacral
Isolated osteochondrosis sacral spine is very rare, it is often combined with lumbar osteochondrosis
Lumbar degenerative disc disease - the influence of provoking factors
. The main manifestations of lumbosacral osteoarthritis are pain in the lower back, extending to the buttock, back of the thigh, shin and outer part of the foot. At the same time it can appear as increased or decreased skin sensitivity in this area, cooling of the lower extremities. Occasionally may occur radicular pain - severe sudden pain from hip to toes feet associated with the infringement of spinal nerves.
It may also disturb the constant nagging pain in the back of the leg, which can give the heel and on the outer edge of the foot. At the same time in these areas may experience numbness, and cold extremities. Due to vascular disorders appear in the lower leg and cooling sensation of chilliness in leg and foot.
When the sacral osteochondrosis often develop paresis (temporary immobilization) of individual muscle groups located in the lower leg.
Osteochondrosis of the lumbosacral spine always occurs with pain.
