The spine pain in lumbar region

If the person has pain in the back, in the lumbar region, the reasons can be different up to the kidney pathology. Most often this symptom is taken by diseases of the lumbosacral region of the spine. Lumbar is the mobile that it is the most common cause of injury in precisely this area.

Why are you developing the pain syndrome?

The kidneys

The pain in the back — it is only a symptom. Acute low back pain related to an infringement of work of the lumbar vertebrae and discs, called lumbago. Why the back pain in the background, all the world should know. There are the causes of the occurrence of this symptom:

  • osteochondrosis of the lumbosacral region of the spine;
  • a hernia between vertebrae;
  • Ankylosing spondylitis;
  • a slip of the vertebra;
  • birth defects (presence of a position of the lumbar vertebra, the split of trip);
  • innate of the violation of the form of the vertebrae;
  • neoplasms benign, malignant and vascular tumors;
  • rheumatism;
  • inflammation of muscles (myositis);
  • the inflammation of the sciatic nerve;
  • fracture of the vertebral column;
  • spondylolisthesis;
  • osteomyelitis;
  • fibrotic;
  • osteoporosis;
  • protrusion of the disk;
  • narrowing of the spinal canal;
  • osteoarthritis;
  • diseases of kidneys (hydronephrosis, pyelonephritis, tumor).

The spine in the lumbar region may be hurt by the simple muscle spasm. It may be in the case of rotation or of the execution of the exercise. The back pain in the lumbar region is most common among people who lead a sedentary lifestyle and raise the severity. Among people practicing sports, this condition is much less frequent.

Sciatica low back pain

If you still have trouble at the bottom of the back of the back, it may be a manifestation of the degenerative disease of disk lumbo-sacral spine. This disease, which mainly affects the discs between the vertebrae. They are thinner, which leads to friction between them and a decrease of the mobility of the disc. There are the factors predisposing the development of this disease:

  • stay for hours in an uncomfortable position;
  • long slopes of the trunk;
  • a lack of training in physical education;
  • the weakness of the muscles and ligaments of the back;
  • wear backpacks on 1 of the strap;
  • the presence of flat feet;
  • a physical work;
  • the largest of the static loads;
  • the poor organization of the space.

Back pain is the main symptom of the degenerative disease of the disc. 1 the extent of the disease, the pain syndrome is absent. With the development of the protrusion of the disk develops lumbago. It is suddenly appear pain in the lower back. Some people feel like an electric shock. It appears during sudden change of posture, or of the conduct.

If the back pain in the lumbar region, the cause may be lumbodynia. This is the pain chronic low back pain. Its appearance does not depend on the motor activity of man. The pain is dull. These people difficult to bend the body. In the position of the man lying on his back, the pain syndrome disappears or decreases.

Osteochondrosis 3 degree develops radicular syndrome. It manifests itself lumborum ischialgia. It is the pain, which gives the lower limb through to toes. Often, it goes with the violation of the sensitivity. The discomfort in the lumbar region due to compression of nerves, blood vessels, and muscle spasms.

Symptoms of hernia

The doctor

If he is concerned about the pain in the lower back, the reasons may also be caused by intervertbral hernia. This disease very common. If the nucleus of the disc, the femur moves. Often, in this context, there is a rupture of the fibrotic ring. The morbidity rate is 150 cases per 100 thousand people. Secrete the reasons for the formation of the hernia:

  • injuries (bruises, falling);
  • osteochondrosis of the lumbosacral region;
  • excess weight;
  • the curvature of the spine;
  • of tight turns.

In the group of risk includes the drivers and office employees who work at the computer. The pain hernia has the following characteristics:

  • is local;
  • often, in the thigh, buttock and shin;
  • associated with other symptoms (numbness, tingling);
  • enhanced by physical activity.

The severity of the pain is determined by the hernia. If it is big, it can develop sciatica. It is manifested by sciatica. It is a pain in the form of lumbagoes.

Most of the patients with hernia develops a type of pain lumbago. Other symptoms of the hernia is the reduced power, reduced mobility, lumbar spine, weakness in the legs. Sometimes violated the urination.

The symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis

When the back pain in the sacral region and the lower back for a while, you can suspect the disease of Ankylosing spondylitis.

It is a chronic disease, a systemic disease, which is most often affects the joints of the spine. The exact causes of development of this disease are not installed. Excrete the causative factors:

  • inflammation of the genito-urinary organs;
  • hypothermia;
  • the injury of the bone;
  • prdisposition hrditaire;
  • the infection.

Ankylosing spondylitis occurs mainly in young people aged 15 to 40 years. This pathology manifests itself with joint and articular symptoms. The pain in the back and stiffness of the spine are an early symptom. The pain is felt in the sacred department. In the early stages, it are mild. Its appearance is due to inflammation.

The pain is bilateral. A lot of people point out that the syndrome of the most severe pain that a side. It lasts for more than 3 months and does not pass. The disease develops very slowly. The pain is painful these people mainly in the morning. Perhaps its appearance after a static load.

At mid-day, it decreases. Syndrome the pain intensifies in a state of rest and disappears on the job. In a phase of strong pain occurs during the night and during the work. During later stages develops sciatica. The pain syndrome in the disease of Ankylosing spondylitis is combined with the deterioration of the overall health of the man, by stress in the chest, shortness of breath, if the head, pain in the muscles of the chest. Often affects the eyes.

The kidney disease


If the bad back-to-back, may be the cause of the renal disease (hydronephrosis or pyelonephritis). The buds located retroperitoneal. In case of inflammation (pyelonephritis) back pain is the most frequent complaint of patients. This disease is often detected in children and young girls. Pyelonephritis often develops in the background of nephrolithiasis.

The disease is contagious in nature. The most vivid flowing acute pyelonephritis. It is characterized by pain in the lower back, nausea, fever, chills, weakness, malaise, frequent urination.

  • of concern constantly in the form of crises;
  • has a different power;
  • the more often one-sided.

  • ct scan;

  • An ULTRASOUND of the kidneys;
  • magnetic resonance imaging;
  • electroneuromyography;
  • - doppler imaging of the vessels;
  • general and biochemical analysis of the blood;
  • the analysis of the urine;
  • cystourethrography.

Necessarily performed the inspection and palpation of the lumbar region and the spine. Requires the consultation of a neurologist or vertebrologist. During the examination, the doctor assesses the mobility of the spine, reflexes, muscle strength, range of motion in the limbs. Almost always the cause of low back pain are diseases of the spine. Their easy to identify on the photo.

Therapeutic measures

Antibiotics preferably ftorhinolonam and penicillins.

Also appointed immunomodulators and vitamins. In the case of a developing hydronephrosis may require surgical treatment.

In the scheme of treatment which include massage, gym, acupuncture.

When the pain in the bottom of sciatica treatment involves immobilization of the spine, the application of analgesics and the introduction intramuscular injection of anesthetics. Also called the vitamins of the B group (Combilipen).

Effective and physiotherapy. Upon detection of the degenerative disc disease shown physiotherapy, massage, receiving pain medication, PHYSIOTHERAPY. Necessarily appointed chondroprotectors.
