Symptoms and treatment of lumbar osteochondrosis of the spine segment.
Lumbar osteochondrosis is the most common disease. Both women and men also suffer from this disease. The diseases of lumbar region are familiar to everyone. Each of us at least once had back pain (as is often said “pinching of nerve in the lumbar region”) – pains in the sacral region, pains in the lower extremities.
Occurrence of the pain syndrome in the case of osteochondrosis of lumbar segment of the spine is caused by compression of root structures (radiculopathy), spinal cord compression (myelopathy compression), spinal cord injury due to disturbance of blood supply, due to compression, narrowing (stenosis) of arteries and veins (compressive-vascular mieloishemia). Note that the first two cases (radiculopathy and myelopathy compression) popular term “nerve block in the lumbar region” is almost entirely true.
Symptoms of lumbar osteochondrosis.
Roots compression of disc hernia in the epidural space.
Epidural space is the space where the spinal roots are located. The symptoms of osteochondrosis of lumbar segment at the same time correspond with the degenerative affected disc.
If it is affected the roots L1, L2 – strong radicular pain, disturbance of sensation in the area “the rider pants” (the upper third of the inner thighs, groin). If the hernia is located in the middle the pain occurs immediately in both legs.
If it is affected the root L5 – desensitization, shooting pain in the lumber region to the thumb down, reducing the strength of the extensor thumb.
If it is affected the root S1 – shooting pain and then reducing of the sensitivity of the external surface of the femur, leg, foot to the little finger and fourth finger. The symptom is accompanied by precipitation of the plantar and Achilles reflexes.

As usually happens “Low back pain treatment? What nonsense! it can be postponed, nothing horrible, it will be done and pass”. In fact, back pain requiring immediate treatment, in the most cases. It should be understood that chronic degenerative osteochondrosis of lumbar region is accompanied with extremely dangerous complications.
