Can a Lumbar Disc Injury Cause Back Spasms?

drx9000 Glastonbury CTAbsolutely. The discs in the lumbar spine act as a cushion, allowing us to move, walk, run, jump, etc … Let’s take a disc injury like a bulging disc as an example. In this case the disc bulges outward, which literally puts pressure on nerves or a nerve root. When this happens, that disc space between vertebrae will flatten. Much like a flat tire, it will flatten and bulge.



Remember, nerves control the muscles, so if we have pressure on the nerves it will create problems with the muscles those nerves go to.



So, if you put pressure on a nerve or nerve root, you may get back pain or sciatica, but you can also get back spasms, leg numbness, or something similar. Depending which disc level or levels get injured can tell us what symptoms may occur and where.

This drug is also called Acetaminophen and retails in such brand names as Dolorex Forte, Lortab Elixir, Norco, Polygesic, Vocodin among a host of other names. The drug falls under narcotic pain relievers in terms of categorization and the main function is pain relief. It is reported to be effective in cases of moderate or severe pain by producing a calm state akin to that of heroin or other hard drugs.

Too often, people wait until the pain becomes unbearable before they contact a chiropractor. Waiting can cause long-term damage, so it is important that you contact your chiropractor when the pain originally begins. Chiropractic goes to the root of the problem, helping patients live pain-free without the use of medication.

Hi, i am an avid fan of back pain remedies because i had this condition even though i am still young and it is kind of rare for me. I have consulted doctors and specialist and saying i have the same condition with the one old people is experiencing. I am hoping i could understand it a little bit deeper though despite of the medical technicalities . Can i do that, do you some simplified version of this that anyone can understand without medical knowledge.
