In brief: Lumbar radiculopathy

Lumbar radiculopathy refers to pain where a nerve is compressed in the lower back/lumbar region causing pain that radiates or shoots down the leg following the innervation pattern of the nerve that is being compressed.

In brief: Sure

Lumbar radiculopathy refers to the typical symptoms of a "pinched nerve".
These include severe, lancinating pain in a consistent distribution. Other symptoms include numbness or tingling and occasionally weakness. It is most commonly caused by a herniated disc. Check out spine-health.Com.

In brief: Nerve root malfuncti

Lumbar radiculopathy just means that a lumbar nerve root is not working properly.
It is commonly caused by a herniated disc or spinal stenosis. Other diagnoses are often medical, such as neuropathy, guillan barre and polio. These generally cause a poly radiculopathy vs a herniated disc which causes a monoradiculopathy.
