LUMBAR RADICULOPATHY

Radiculopathy refers to pain that radiates directly along
the course of a spinal nerve root into the lower extremity.
Lumbar radiculopathy symptoms can cause pain in your lower back, legs and/or feet.

What is Lumbar Radiculopathy?
Lumbar radiculopathy: Nerve irritation caused by damage to the discs between the vertebrae. Damage to the disc occurs because of degeneration ("wear and tear") of the outer ring of the disc, traumatic injury, or both.
The central softer portion of the disc can rupture (herniate) and this is what causes the commonly recognized pain of "sciatica" that shoots down the leg.
Your Symptoms may radiate from the lower back down to the buttocks, thigh, leg, and foot. When you bend forward or to the side, this movement may cause your pain or if you're already experiencing pain, these movements may cause your pain to increase.

Lumbar Radiculopathy causes pain in this region of your spine.
The origin or reason for your pain can be the result of a wide variety of causes ranging from chronic conditions to traumatic injury, recent or old damage..
