Symptoms of Intervertebral disc displacement lumbar w/o myelopathy?

And the question IS?: I'm afraid your question mark should really be a comma if anything. I'm not catching your drift. Are you asking for a list of symptoms associated with IVD disease without myelopathy....or if one could even exist without the other? Perhaps, you're copying something out of a report? Revamp your question and send through again. ...Read more

Spinal Disc (Definition)

Spinal discs are located between the vertebrae (blocks of bone) of the spine (expect the upper 2). They act like shock absorbers and are also important in allowing our spines to be flexible. They have a tough outer rim made of strong fibers and a fleshier shock-absorbing tissue in the center. These "shocks" can wear out with routine life activities, age and injuries. They can ...Read more

Cord compression due: To disc issue in the neck region usually with degenerative disc disease ; a small spinal canal diameter. Prior history of neck injury can accelerate degenerative changes ; smokers accelerate this rate 4x over a nonsmoker. A herniated large disc can cause a myelopathy which is cord compression but it is most often associated with degeneration leading to a too narrow spinal canal for the cord. ...Read more

What is intervertebral disc disorder with myelopathy lumbar region?

Nonsensical: The spinal cord ends at about l-2, and most common disc issues are present at l4-5, and l-5-s-1. In order for a disc to affect the spinal cord, we are talking about a problem in the lower thoracic spine, or a rather unusual high lumbar disc fragment, perhaps. Myelopathy means involvement of spinal cord, so are we really using the term incorrectly here? Ask your doc about this. ...Read more

Mri of cervical spine says there is disc space desiccation from c3c4 through c5c6 intervertebral disc space level. What does it mean?

Degenerative change: Means that the disc, which is a sort of "cushion" between the vertebral bodies, is losing elasticity due to chemical alterations in its substance, generally associated with aging and wear and tear. It is an early manifestation of degenerative disc disease/arthritis. Very common, likely not to cause symptoms as an isolated finding. No treatment per se, no follow up if this is the only finding. ...Read more

I have lowe back pain. X-ray shows lost intervertebral disc space....What is the managment and tretment?

Work Up: The first step is a comprehensive history and physical with correlation of studies and how your life is impacted by back pain or radicular symptoms/sciatica/leg pain. Management and treatment range from the very conservative such as anti-inflammatories and physical therapy to epidurals and other interventions. Surgery is usually a last resort. ...Read more

What is bulging intervertebral disc with sac effacement en l-5s1?

Bulging disc: The disc at the l5-s1 level is bulging and causing pressure on the spinal sack, but not causing nerve compression. Most of this type of findings on MRI are asymptomatic or possibly a cause of back pain. Core strengthening, pain management, and rarely surgery can improve symptoms. ...Read more

Few dr suggested for surgery few for medicines for lv3-lv4 n lv5 intervertebral disc levels (i have already asked for), im doing therapy now, is that ok?

Yes: Surgery is elective, and usually chosen as an option by the patient who has failed all other means of treating his/her symptoms (meaning meds, injections, physical therapy, if appropriate weight loss, e stim, etc.). If you get to the point when pain or neurological deficit is interfering with day to day activities despite other tx, then talk to ur doc about surgery. ...Read more

What exactly is a sequestrated lumbar intervertebral disc?

Separated: There are different degrees of herniation. The most severe degree is sequestered. It just means a piece of disc has ruptured through the back wall of the disc into the nerve canal and then migrated away to the extent it is no longer in contact with the disc. ...Read more

Could you tell me the difference between annulus fibrosus and nucleus pulposus in intervertebral disc?

Shell vs jelly: Annulus is the rings of connective tissue, like cartilage, that form the outer part of the disk. Nucleus pulposis is the jelly filling.
A herniated disc occurs when the jelly squirts out of the shell whereas a "protrusion" occurs when a part of the annulus is pooching out. ...Read more

What is typical physiotherapy treatment of prolapsed intervertebral disc (pivd)?

Different kinds: One type that is popular and has a good track record is mckenzie technique named for robin mckenzie, an australian physiotherapist. The theory is to find a lumbar range of motion that is relatively comfortable and train the patient to engage in these exercises. Often for a prolapsed disc, it involves back extension exercises which seeks to "centralize" the pain into the back and out of the leg. ...Read more

Follow up: You may have instability in one of your lumbar segments. I would recommend you follow up with your spine doctor. They will probably order X-rays that are taken with you standing and bent over to asses the stability. Sometimes it can be treated with physical therapy and others are better treated with surgical stabilization. ...Read more

What is neural forminal hypertrophic vhanges of the ligamentum flavum bilataterally bulging of intervertebral disc and facet arthropathy?

Anatomy: Not enough space here to write. If you google these things, you will find nice pictures to explain it all. Foramen is the "hole" in the bone where your nerve roots exit. Facets are the joints that hold vertebrae together. Ligamentum flavum is a ligament within the bones that runs down the spinal canal. All of these problems you mention can lead to back pain and nerve related pain. ...Read more
