Not Strong Enough To Stand And Or Sit When Exposed To A Pinched Nerve?
Excuse me Doctor, I Deny want to ask about the condition of my mother who has a pinched nerve in the lumbar, you have done physiotherapy and acupuncture but after several therapies you are not able to stand or sit and also have pain in the pelvis. Please info related to this for further handling. thanks.
A herniated nucleus pulposus (HNP) is a condition in which the core of the spinal disc / disc protrudes out of the way to pinch the spinal cord. usually this condition is triggered by genetic factors, obesity, the habit of lifting heavy weights, and also smoking.
Medical treatment of patients with HNP conditions, depends on the severity of the patient, where of course treatment with drugs will function as pain relievers and reduce the inflammatory process that occurs in the pinched nerve. However, drugs will not make the condition that is pinched. So that action is needed such as physiotherapy, for example, so that the position of the protruding disc is attempted so as not to pinch the spinal cord. The effect obtained from physiotherapy is not instantaneous and takes time, so it takes persistence from the patient to want to undergo physiotherapy regularly. In addition to physiotherapy, there are also other therapies using a special pinched nerve corset, which is used to maintain posture so that the vertebrae of the spine do not pinch the nerves too much. While surgery is only needed by a small proportion of patients with HNP, usually HNP surgery is recommended for those who for 6 weeks of treatment but do not experience improvement in symptoms, muscles become stiff and weak, unable to stand or walk, and unable to control excretion. small water or large water.
That's why Deny is expected to bring your mother back to the doctor so that she can re-evaluate Deny's current condition. The most appropriate treatment plan for the situation depends on the results of the information obtained from the medical evaluation.
As for some suggestions so that the complaints that are experienced do not get worse are to maintain an upright and symmetrical posture (not tilted to one side of the body), then try to have an ideal body weight, because the fatter a person will burden the spine so that it tends to cause a shift in the spinal discs. .
