Assalamualaikum, when I was in elementary school, I once fell from a tree in a sitting position. When I was ± 25 years old until now I am 38 years old often feel pain in the tailbone / buttocks. My current diagnosis is that I have LBP and after an MRI check there is a pinched nerve in my spine/tailbone area. Does my history of falling from a tree when I was in elementary school affect the pinched nerves that I suffer now. Thank you…

Hi Ari, Thank you for the question.

What do you mean by herniated nucleus pulposus (HNP)? HNP is a protrusion of the cushion between two vertebrae that can cause the spinal nerves that pass through the area of ​​the bulge to be pinched. Normally, between the vertebrae there are pads that are spongy in the middle like jelly and the outside is a tough tissue. As we age, the elasticity of these cushions decreases, making them susceptible to injury in the event of an injury. An injury or other factor can put pressure on the vertebral column so that the inside of these pads protrude and press on the nerves. The following are some of the risk factors for a person developing HNP:

heredity being overweight, lifting heavy weights, smoking The injury you experienced as a child is unlikely to be related to your current condition. The presence of a pinched nerve in the lower spine can cause symptoms of pain in the legs, weakness in the legs, numbness or tingling in the legs. The severity of symptoms experienced by patients also varies.

Treatment of HNP depends on its severity. Not all cases of HNP require surgery. Surgery will be advised by a doctor if:

symptoms do not improve after 6 weeks of treatment there is muscle weakness difficulty walking can not control urination Please you consult again with the specialist who suggested this examination. Your doctor will adjust your treatment according to the severity of your symptoms. Usually for mild symptoms the doctor will give you pain medication and will suggest physical therapy for you. For a while, avoid physical activity that is too strenuous, especially those that involve waist movements.

Hope this information is useful.
