Hi doctors, can you tell me what is lumbrosacral neuritis/radiculitis?

Generic: If a nerve is pinched in the lower back, by a ruptured disc, this is termed radiculopathy. If the nerve root is merely irritated or inflamed, this would be radiculitis. Neuritis would refer to peripheral nerve in the leg, a more distal process.
