Treatment

  • Abstract Two patients had lumbo-sacral radiculopathy following radiation treatment of cancer. Twenty previously reported cases were similar.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In fact, most patients’ symptoms improve with conservative treatment alone.[comprehensivespine.weillcornell.org]
  • Treatment: Treatment for radiculopathy varies with the nature and severity of the disease process or injury that has caused the disorder. Initial treatment must be directed at reducing pain and inflammation around the injured spinal nerve.[premierneurologycenter.com]
  • Treatment will be effective only in the case of a clearly identified etiology. Targeted etiological therapy will eliminate the disease. In some cases, lumbosacral radiculopathy requires prompt treatment.[back.vsebolezni.com]
  • Given the effectiveness of more active treatments, traction is generally not recommended in the treatment of acute LBP.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis Those who have progressive and prolonged symptoms may experience neurological damage if the cysts continue to compress nerve structures.[orpha.net]
  • Furthermore, Logan’s other factors support conservative therapy: young age, new symptoms, mild muscle weakness, and the limited number of muscles involved, all favor a good prognosis without surgical intervention.[comprehensivespine.weillcornell.org]

Etiology

  • Treatment will be effective only in the case of a clearly identified etiology. Targeted etiological therapy will eliminate the disease. In some cases, lumbosacral radiculopathy requires prompt treatment.[back.vsebolezni.com]
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The engagement of the first sacral nerve root is one of the most common etiologies in Sciatic Pain Syndrome (SPS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Electrodiagnostic studies can help distinguish radiculopathy from other etiologies and is important in identifying physiologic abnormalities of the nerve roots and the muscles. X ray or MRI are used to confirm the diagnosis.[premierneurologycenter.com]
  • Etiology There are a number of conditions that can cause the cysts to become symptomatic, including traumatic injury, heavy lifting, childbirth, epidurals, and trauma to the spinal cord.[orpha.net]

  • Summary Epidemiology The annual incidence of perineural cysts is estimated at approximately 5%, although large cysts that cause symptoms are relatively rare with annual incidence estimated at less than 1/2,000.[orpha.net]

Pathophysiology

  • The development of progressive radiculopathy 34 years after lumbar radiation exposure in our patient is consistent with prior cases of post-irradiation lumbosacral radiculopathy with multiple spinal cavernous malformations.[ 13 17 28 ] The pathophysiology[surgicalneurologyint.com]
  • The pathophysiology of sciatica is not completely understood, although the current understanding is that mechanical alterations combined with inflammatory changes lead to pain.[wakespine.com]

Prevention

  • Return to work and prevention are based on effort training, consultations for working place adjustments and ergonomics.[euro-prm.org]

  • Radiculopathy Prevention While radiculopathy can’t always be prevented, staying physically fit and maintaining a healthy weight may reduce your risk of radiculopathy.[hopkinsmedicine.org]
  • We understand the stress and inconvenience of living with a painful condition and encourage you to seek help as soon as possible to prevent your condition from worsening. Causes of Sciatica[wakespine.com]
  • Can radiculopathy be prevented? There is no specific prevention for radiculopathy. Maintaining a reasonable weight, good muscle conditioning, and avoiding excessive strain on the neck and back can reduce the chances of developing radiculopathy.[medicinenet.com]
