Spinal intervertebral disc herniationSpinal intervertebral disc herniation is a common problem among younger people, aged 20 to 40, but sometimes this health issue is encountered by older people too. The pain usually originates in the lumbar spine and radiates to one or both legs. The pain is usually worse while sitting; some alleviation is felt during light walks. In more serious cases, patients can experience issues with bowel movement; this requires immediate medical attention. Diagnostic approaches are based on clinical tests as well as magnetic resonance for lumbar spine. Treatment comes in the shape of physical therapy, nerve blockages or surgical treatment of disc herniation.
Lumbar spinal stenosisSpinal stenosis (or narrowing of spinal canal) is a common ailment among elderly population. The narrowing is caused by arthrosis in the intraverbal joints as well as thickened ligaments occupying the space in the nerve canal and thus compressing the nerves. Spinal stenosis usually comes with radiating pain and numbing sensation in legs, aggravated by walking and standing. The pain usually decreases while sitting or bending forward. The best treatment method is releasing the compressed nerve roots through microsurgical decompression.
