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 moreGet help now ›
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

Revamp your question and send through again. ...Read moreGet help now ›

Need more info: Lumbar disease usually cannot cause myelopathy. Myelopathy is compression of the spinal cord or an intrinsic brain disease. The spinal cord ends at about L1 (the upper most part of the lumbar spine) in most patients so lumbar disease (meaning the lower back area) doesn't cause spinal cord compression. A more specific question may be more helpful. ...Read moreGet help now ›
The lumbar part of the spine is the low back. It is made up of five bones (most of the time) stacked one on top of the other. They are connected by disks, facet joints, and ligaments. These soft parts allow for movement controlled by the spinal muscles; the muscles can also keep it stiff when need be. The lumbar spine also contains and protects nerves to ...Read more
