There are many reasons for low back pain
The lumbar intervertebral disc causes more!
Degenerative disease of the intervertebral disc
Starting from the age of 20, the lumbar discs will age The process is medically called degeneration of intervertebral disc.
During this process, the lumbar intervertebral disc does not protrude and does not compress the nerves. Will it cause low back pain? Of course the answer is!
The lumbar intervertebral disc is not herniated, and low back pain frequently occurs
Be carefuldisc-derived nerve roots Inflammation and
Endogenous intervertebral disc pain!
The nucleus is an important structure in the human lumbar intervertebral disc. It is elastic and can buffer the pressure caused by exercise and maintain normal spinal function.
The nucleus pulposus will gradually age with age, and then rupture under pressure. After the rupture, the fluid inside the nucleus pulposus will flow out. If it touches the nerve roots nearby , Will directly cause nerve root inflammation, edema and pain. Medically called discogenic radiculitis.
Intrinsic disc pain
The discogenic radiculitis is not controlled, and further deterioration will occur in the fissures of the lumbar intervertebral disc and the edge of the discvascular proliferation or formation Dense blood vessels.
These proliferated blood vessels are the origin of pain and can also cause low back pain. Doctors call them Intrinsic disc pain.
Note: About 40% of patients with low back pain do not have a herniated intervertebral disc. If you can’t find the cause of your low back pain, you can go through MRI examination to determine whether it is low back pain caused by endogenous disc pain.
Endogenous disc back pain VS lumbar disc herniation
Endogenous disc Sexual low back pain can not sit for a long time, lumbar disc herniation is accompanied by lower limb pain. In addition, the endogenous back pain of the intervertebral disc may be related to genetics.
Endogenous low back pain in the intervertebral disc is an early manifestation of lumbar disc herniation. In the early stages, avoiding pressure and trauma to the lumbar intervertebral disc can delay the disease. Experts suggest that middle-aged and elderly people should avoid jumping and other strength exercises to avoid damage to the lumbar intervertebral disc.
The pressure on the lumbar intervertebral disc is different in different postures. Lying flat can relieve the pressure on the lumbar spine. Sitting forward and lifting weights The lumbar intervertebral disc bears the greatest pressure during physical loading!
When encountering lumbar disc-induced pain, experts recommend that you choose conservative treatment or low-temperature plasma ablation based on the severity of the disease.
Rest more, physical non-invasive treatment, "Injection into the focal area"
Patients whose effect is not obvious after 3 months of conservative treatment:
Low-temperature plasma vaporization ablation
Low back pain is not necessarily a herniated lumbar intervertebral disc!
Also watch out for disc-derived nervesRoot inflammation and
endogenous disc pain!
