Traditionally, pain with ICIs is concentrated in the lumbar, then pierces the sciatic area and "descends" on the legs (along the sciatic nerve). What provokes the appearance of Ishias and what can it threaten? In the first place, it is necessary to realize that osteochondrosis of the lumbar spine leads to a narrowing of the gap between adjacent vertebrae. It is through it that one of the nerve roots passes, which innervates a certain region of the back. In this case, the surrounding tissues are also ignited and this is a direct threat of transition to the sciatic nerve.
With hernia of the intervertebral disc, a cartilaginous disk between the adjacent vertebrae, which performs the function of amortization, at the time of the fallout of its pulp nucleus in the spinal canal, there is compression of one of the nerve roots. Because of instability of the spine, there is a displacement of individual vertebrae and in sharp movements, at moments of lifting heavy things, there is a squeezing of the nerve due to the rotation or movement of the vertebra.
The causes of ischiasis may be both tumorous and infections of the vertebral column, congenital anomalies of its structure. It is important to know and be able to recognize the main symptom of ishias - attacks of acute pain in the lower back, which are often "given away" in the leg or buttocks.
Inflammation of the sciatic nerve is accompanied by a disturbance of sensitivity in the legs, a periodic sensation of tingling and numbness of the lower back occurs. Muscle weakness with time increases and falls down, covering the area of the buttocks. If the disease is started, the pain is present only in the upper part of the leg above the knee. In the case of injury, the spinal cord ischias, along with inflammatory changes in the sciatic nerve, is accompanied by paresis and paralysis - a person stops feeling limbs.
At ishias, the person is forced to take the position of the body, which will minimize the pain syndrome. Inflamed sciatic nerve is concerned with pain attacks, therefore, after prolonged and complicated anti-inflammatory therapy, it is possible to relieve syndromes of ishia. But with any short-term effect, which the body regards as provocative (cough, laughter), the pain may come back and remind yourself.
Subsequently, the disease passes to the opposite side and the person starts to experience severe pain not only due to inflammation of the nerve, but also due to a violation of the sensitivity of the genital and pelvic organs.
In someone, the effects of Ichias are manifested with little discomfort when walking and mild pain, and in someone - a sharp pain that literally bends in half.
Now, doctors have the necessary methods for thorough diagnostics of the spine and soft tissues (MRI, CT, X-ray). With the results of these diagnostic studies, you can choose treatment with the confidence that it will be effective. In order to prevent irreversible consequences, the first "bells", with pains in the spine, you should immediately consult doctors with the help and advice.
