The pain or weakness must correspond to the nerve that is being pinched or compressed by the disc herniation and that is why a good history and examination is necessary to correlate these findings. Broad based disc bulge is often thought to be a pinched nerve until imagining is. intradural cysts. behind a small disc bulge at that level (Figure 3). L5-S1 central bulge and L5 nerve root involvement. I have a pinched nerve L4-L5 abutting the L4 nerve root. A disc made of a gel-like material (nucleus pulposus) surrounded by a thick fibrous ring (annulus fibrosus) is situated between the vertebral bodies of L5 and S1. (2 replies). This produces pain called radicular pain (e. L5 root nerve abutment. Here a patient with a combination of spondylolysis (arrow), minimal listhesis and disc herniation resulting in compression of the L3 nerve within the foramen. Because the disc herniation contacts or even compresses the adjacent lumbar nerve roots, these biochemicals can freely diffuse into the nerve root (as well as into the epidural space), [85] which in turn may create a rip-roaring, pain-generating inflammation in some, but not all patients. Cervical radiculopathy – causes are predominantly degenerative and include foraminal stenosis, such as those imparted by osteophyte encroachment from spondylosis. At T12–L1 and L1-2 there were disc bulges causing mild mass effect on the thecal sac. L4/L5 invertebral disc shows posterior, right paracentral and right foraminal disc.

The thecal sac or dural sac is the membranous sheath (theca) or tube of dura mater that surrounds the spinal cord and the cauda equina. The disc essentially pushes out of its normal place and starts impinging on nearby nerves of the spine, sometimes causing pain. The reason you have pain with transition to standing is that the nerve actually has to move (like a cable over a pulley) and becomes “caught” in the pulley temporarily. This can create a diagnostic puzzle for some inexperienced or careless care providers. This is called a disc herniation or protrusion. Cervical disc herniation often results in neck and arm pain in patients as a result of direct impingement of nerve roots and associated inflammatory processes. 10 is the standard surgical blade; no. • Cervical spondylosis is the defined as “spinal canal and neural foraminal narrowing in cervical spine secondary to multifactorial degenerative changes • Approximately 25% of individuals younger than forty years of age, 50% of individuals over forty years of age, and 85% of individuals over sixty years of age have some degree of disc degeneration.

Ghormley was the first who characterized the ‘facet syndrome’ by back and/or leg pain, as a result from mechanical irritation of a lower lumbar zygapophysial joints. When a patient has a symptomatic herniated disc, the disc itself is not painful, but rather the leaking disc is pinching a nerve. Due to its articulations with rib cage, the thoracic spine is more rigid than the cervical and lumbar regions. Causes of Bilateral Foraminal Stenosis.

Due to the close proximity to the lower pelvic region, patients may be misdiagnosed with herniated lumbar discs, arachnoiditis and in females, gynecological conditions. Facet syndrome is an articular disorder related to the lumbar facet joints and their innervations, and produces both local and radiating pain. This will give the accurate picture of the internal structures of the spine and will clearly show the disc herniation and the nucleus pulposus impinging the nerve root. Do you have pain in your lower leg and/ or ankle or feet? Or the side of the feet?.
