This kind of pain prevents, not just live, but to walk. How is it possible that the pain of irritation, which is in the back, it can penetrate into the limb and lead to lameness? Even when the source is placed much higher, we feel its effect at so great a distance: your back hurts, but insensitive and pull the legs. The way the pain in the back gives step?
The reasons it gives pain in the legs can be drafty, osteochondrosis, hernia, tumors, and stress
This is due to the nerve reflex nature of the pain syndrome, its ability to spread over the entire length of the nerve emerging from the spinal cord. When this nerve is somewhere irritated, then there arises a distant feedback.
One of the possible causes of pain in the foot can be inflammation of the sciatic nerve
In the lumbar-sacral department is a tangle of nerve fibers, which resulted from the vertebrae l4, L5 and S1 — S3. It is called plexus sciatic nerves. From the comfort of your piriformis, literally the branches of the femoral and ankle muscles and joints, is the most powerful and long nerves of the human body.
Inflammation of the sciatic nerve it responds to the lower extremities. The pain, which appeared in the lower back and is placed on the foot, is called lumbosciatica. Usually it is suffering (pain or pulls) one leg, on the side of the nerve, but it happens and the double-sided reaction, in which both legs hurt.
Pain is all, is not limited, and sick is threatened by other unpleasant feelings:
If the nerve is affected is the sacrum, with the involvement of the muscles of the buttocks and thighs, then painful from the sacrum and in the legs is called sciatica.
Very often people share the pain in his back and legs into two different categories, and do not see that the key cause. "It hurts me in right knee, numbness in the legs. I can't trample on your feet and climb the ladder" — describe in detail the condition of their limbs, to forget about the pain in the back, which all preceded. She wonders also "the inability of" doctors, who instead, to treat arthritis of the knee joint, they suddenly begin to engage in the spine.
But it is the backbone to your daunting nervous, muscular-ligament and the vascular system is the core of the sciatica.
Why hurt, drag and numb feet
The classification of the pain syndrome of the back and legs
According to its origin all kinds of back pain, gives to the limb, one can roughly define three basic groups:
Here you can place all of the VPD (degenerative-dystrophic processes), for the reason that disrupted, all the metabolic processes in tissues and their food, as well as infectious, inflammatory diseases and congenital dysplasia of the spine. The threat to the nerve fibers here is twofold:
Vegetative-visceral violation — it's a huge complex of symptoms, which includes all of the disorders in the functioning of the internal organs and systems of the body, associated with impaired regulation of the autonomic nervous system (ANS)
The vegetative system is closely linked with the central on the principle of direct and feedback:
Especially often problems with the feet can occur when vegetative-vascular disorders in the area of the lumbar-sacral department pain. Bad blood circulation is able to lead to pain sensations in the back and limbs, dystrophy the muscles of the legs.
Summarizing the above-said, it is possible to make a conclusion:
Find out why it hurts, pull out, and my legs are numb because of the pain originated in my back, it is possible only after a careful diagnosis of:
Treatment of pain in the back and legs
Treatment should be completely adequate due to illness.
Treatment of reflex from pain — it's always a long process, as they are commonly arise in the chronic long-term disease manifests itself on the human nervous system
Therefore, if she got sick back, try to immediately determine the cause of the pain and start the treatment without waiting for the moment when they start to hurt, numb, or to pull the legs.
If the pain in the lower back makes on the leg, in the first of all think about lumbago (sciatica) or rheumatic pain. In particular, if numb fingers and the foot of the tooth pain. Most often this happens. And the few who remembers that such symptomatology can be and at other diseases-e.g. acute appendicitis.
Important: On rare diseases, which lead to the formation of defines us syndrome, forget not.
Painful in the lower back, which is associated with disease of the spine and spreads to the lower extremity, it is called lumbosciatica.
During the degenerative process in the lumbar spine pillar pain is most often develops due to compression of the nerve roots and in the lower limb to the primary nerves of the lumbar-sacral plexus — sciatic, which is divided into fibular and tibial. This gives in the popliteal cranial beginning of the nerves of the lower extremities.
Compression of nerve roots occurs when the destruction of the intervertebral cartilage on the background of degenerative-dystrophic reaction. When it reduces the distance between the adjacent vertebrae, and, respectively, are smaller openings for the spinal nerve roots. When intervertebral hernia, that you're upset right protrusion of a hernia, when the tumour — pathological substances neoplasms, when spondylosis — bone growths, called osteophytes.
On the background of a faulty process is always evolving inflammatory response in the form of swelling and impairment of function of the surrounding tissue, impairing blood circulation in the affected area, the oppressed normal metabolic processes. The result of which is to increase muscle tone in the area of innervation of the strangulated roots, which leads to strengthening of the pain syndrome.
The development of changes in the spine usually celebrated with the termination of the processes of ossification for about 25 years and is considered a normal physiological phenomenon. Is premature aging of the pain of cartilage structure may be suspended, if it is in accordance with the principles of proper nutrition and strengthen the muscles of the back special exercises.
Diseases of the spine are manifested by the following types of sciatica:
Important: Most often the pain syndrome is mixed. Any one form of sciatica in a pure form rarely observed.
Chronic pain is almost a constant companion of life, on which almost gets used to it, so as a bright section is very small. When it pulls in the lumbar region and in the course of the branches of the sciatic nerve.
In the development of pain syndrome may develop paralysis of the lower limbs, caused by the full compression of motor nerve roots. But more often in such severe consequences of the disease process still falls short.
Often pain in the lower back, it gives the step, are a manifestation of pathology of the internal organs. Limb in this numb along the course of the nerve stretches, and the pain can give the groin.
Similar phenomena are explained by features of the innervation of the organs of small pelvis and legs.
