Many of us once in your life back aching or "shoot" inlower back more than once. But only a few know what causes this pain. And in medicine is this: know the cause of the disease - can be cured. This will be discussed below. According as a rule, among people known to several titles of this problem.


Let's start with lumbagoabout. This sharp pain that comes on suddenly. Spasm of the muscles of the back and their causes swelling and irritation of the nerve endings. Then there is the virtuous circle: pain causes an increase in spasm, and pinching the nerve roots, and those, of course, cause acute pain. It is so strong that sometimes a person can not move.It is perceived by him as a big disaster. But, fortunately, in 70-80 percent of cases, such attacks are completely for a couple of days. When the attack is delayed, it provokes the displacement (subluxation) of the vertebrae or herniated disc appears. Although the pain becomes less intense.

Sometimes the spasm. And the reason it yavlyayutsya degenerative changes of intervertebral joints, especially the weakness of the ligaments around them. Nerve entrapment increases muscle spasm. Thus it extends to the adjacent muscle. As a consequence - the backbone "charged" and increases the pressure directly on the intervertebral discs, which often can bulge or rupture. Kohyes happens acute muscle spasm, it often vyzivaet back pain (lumbago), but sciatica is very rare. Conversely, when the displacement of the intervertebral joint affected femoral and sciatic nerves, sciatica i.e. occurs. And there are reflex vascular disorders: at the feet of the feeling of gravity, limb nemeor are very "cool" and "driving".

intervertebral hernia

intervertebral hernia (rupture or bulging of the intervertebral disc) is the most severe disease is in a group of degenerative diseases of the spine. It arises as a result of spasm or after the injury, for example, such asfall on the coccyx and the like. But it must be a coincidence of adverse circumstances, because under normal conditions of the spine can withstand heavy loads.

The symptoms of intervertebral hernia:

  • A sharp pain, which later spread along the pinched nerve in Oney or both legs, that is, sciatica;
  • can disturb sensitive feet;
  • will appear skewed body;
  • In severe cases, possible paralysis of the legs (This is rare - less than one percent of the cases. But in spite of this, should leadand an example).

If you go tomographic examination (quite healthy people who are older than 40 years and who absolutely have never had any problems with the back), then at least every 3rd It has an intervertebral hernia. But these people are not aware of it. We are talking about ordinary changes that nroiskhodyat with age. Therefore, it is desirable, so that doctors and patients have never forgotten that the hernia on the CT scan - this is not a diagnosis, but even more so - not a sentence.
