Good evening, thanks for the question
The lumbosacral spine is located in the lower back area to the buttocks of the entire vertebra. If there is a narrowing in the channel that contains the spinal cord or called spinal stenosis, then the risk of causing pressure on the nerve fibers through which. Nerve stress in the area will affect the innervated area, from the buttocks to the lower limbs. Apart from being due to nerve stress, complaints can also arise due to the inflammatory process. At a young age the condition is more due to disruption in the growth process, whereas in adults to the elderly is caused by degenerative processes.
Perceived complaints include:
1. Pain, weakness, or tingling in the legs, calves, or buttocks.
2. Cramps in the calf when walking.
3. Pain radiates to one or both thighs.
4. Pain that is reduced in the position of bending, sitting, or lying down.
5. Impaired motor limbs
If it has been diagnosed as spinal stenosis from an X-ray examination, then further treatment is needed to overcome the cause and reduce pain.
Treatment can be through both operative and non-operative methods. Non-operative methods include:
1. Anti-inflammatory medication to reduce pain complaints. Moderate to severe pain may require potent analgesics on the recommendation of a doctor.
2. Epidural injection.
3. Physical therapy that aims to stabilize, provide protection, restore strength, and increase spinal flexibility.
Operations will be recommended if non-operative efforts as above do not produce the expected results. There are several methods of surgery depending on the clinical condition of each patient for consideration. Consult with a neurologist for evaluation and determine the next treatment plan according to your medical condition.
That's all, hope you can help
