Lumbar and Sacral Arthritis

Lumbar And/or Sacral Arthritis


  • Neck Disc Herniation A thoracic herniated disc occurs as a result of trauma or natural disc degeneration, and often presents no symptoms; when present, symptoms typically consist of pain radiating around the chest.[oxfordvalleypain.com]
  • Distinguishing, AS from DISH can be a challenge since both can present with hip disease and decreased range of motion of the spine.[hopkinsarthritis.org]

  • . • Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a condition in which the bones loose so much mass that they become brittle and prone to break with slight trauma.[arthritis.org]
  • Osteophytes produce the impression of increased bone mass, thus invalidating bone density tests if in the field of interest and masking osteoporosis. [5] Because back pain is an unrelated finding of lumbar spondylosis, seek the real cause of the patient's[emedicine.medscape.com]
Spine Pain
  • Second, it is necessary to determine whether the acute or chronic spine pain is related to a serious underlying medical illness that is manifesting itself as spine pain.[clevelandclinicmeded.com]
  • Spondylosis (spine arthritis) is one of the most common causes of spine pain and stiffness once you are aged over fifty. Spondylosis is further categorised depending on the region of the spine that it is present.[physioworks.com.au]
  • When AS progresses, the spine pain may disappear. However, this does not signal a remission of the disease.[umm.edu]
Muscle Strain
  • Fortunately, most patients with a muscle strain get better with rest, ice, anti-inflammatory medications, and physical therapy.[paradigmspine.com]

Neurogenic Claudication
  • Neurogenic claudication—the tendency for exacerbation of symptoms due to walking, standing, and maintaining certain postures—is the hallmark of the condition.[clevelandclinicmeded.com]
Foot Drop
  • drop," weakness in a foot that causes a limp Loss of sexual ability Pressure on nerves in the lumbar region (lower back) can also cause more serious symptoms known as cauda equina syndrome.[hopkinsmedicine.org]
  • However, since there is no spinal cord in the Lumbar Spinal Canal, disorders of the lumbar spine can only result in radicular problems such as radiculitis or radiculopathy.[icd10orthocoder.com]


  • Such symptoms should trigger an urgent workup that includes MRI studies and possibly neurosurgical consultation. Acute Low Back Pain Acute spine pain is very common, and the likelihood of spontaneous recovery is in the range of 80% to 90%.[clevelandclinicmeded.com]
