Lumbar Radiculopathy Overview:

bilateral lumber radiculopathy

Lumbar radiculopathy refers to the irritation of nerves caused by damage to the discs present between the vertebrae. This condition occurs in nearly 3-5% of the population. Often men in their 40s and women between the age range of 50-60 are affected with lumbar radiculopathy. Often 10-25% symptoms persists for more than six weeks in people suffering from this condition. Let us learn more facts about this disorder for free consultation.

Lumbar Radiculopathy Causes and Diagnosis:

Causes:

Many disease states can cause this condition, however, the most usual causes include a structural problem like a bone spur, herniated disc, traumatic event or mechanical stretching. The discs may also be damaged due to a congenital defect, strenuous activity or a traumatic event. When the disc is damaged, then the materials in the discs start leaking and this will result in squeezing the nerve root. This condition will cause tingling, numbness, weakness and pain.

The irritation of the nerves can be caused due to the mechanical compression of the nerve. Other rare causes for mechanical compression of the nerve include infection or tumor. Both tumors or infection can reduce the amount of space in the spinal canal and compress the exit nerve. Other causes of lumbar radiculopathy include diabetes, degeneration or inflammation from trauma.

Diagnosis:

The physician will start the diagnosis of lumbar radiculopathy with a physical examination and medical history of the patient. The doctor will ask you about the type of symptoms, location and duration so that he/she can localize the nerve that is responsible for your condition. The doctor will check muscle strength, reflexes and sensation to determine any abnormalities. The patient will be asked to obtain imaging studies. X-rays are often obtained first. An MRI scan will be obtained to look at the soft tissues around the spine, including the disc, nerves and the ligaments. If the patient is unable to undergo an MRI scan, then he/she may be asked to obtain a CT scan.

In certain cases, your doctor will order a nerve conduction study or EMG (electromyogram) to determine any damage to the nerve.

Patients also complain about the localized neck pain and back pain. Often the pain caused due to this condition radiates from a lower extremity and called as sciatica.

The treatment for lumbar radiculopathy in india ranges from medical management to surgery.

Patients having unrelenting pain, incontinence indicating spinal cord irritation, severe impairment of the function will be referred by the surgeons to undergo surgery. The surgery performed depends upon the overall health and age of the patient. The goal of the surgery is to remove the compression of the affected nerve. Considering the cause of the condition, either laminectomy or discectomy will be performed.

  • A laminectomy is a procedure to remove a small portion of the bone that covers the nerve to allow it an additional space.
  • A discectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the portion of the disc that has herniated out and is compressing the nerve.
