This is the kind of pain bothers you, to not only live, but even just for a walk. How is it that the pain arising from the back can penetrate the limb, because it's lame? Although the source is much higher, we feel the effect of the distance: back hurting, but numb, and then drag the leg. The pain radiates to the leg?
Causing radiating pain in the legs can be draft, low back pain, hernia, cancer, stress
This is due to a reflex nervous nature of the pain, the ability to spread the full length of the picture unfolds in the spinal cord. If this nerve somewhere is irritated, there is a remote response.
One of the possible causes of foot pain can be inflammation of the sciatic nerve
The lumbosacralis plexus of nerve fibers emerging from the vertebrae l4, L5, and S1 — S3. This plexus is called the sciatic nerve. From the comfort of your piriformis, it literally divides the thigh, ankle muscles, joints, the strongest longest image of the human body.
Sciatica react, thus the lower extremities. Pain in the lower back to the leg, the so-called lumbosciatica. Usually suffer (patient, or drag) one foot on the side of the nerve, but sometimes two-reaction, in which both my legs hurt.
The pain is not limited to, the patient harassment, or other unpleasant feelings:
If the nerve is affected at the level of the sacrum, through the muscles of the buttocks, the thighs, the pain syndrome, the sacrum, the leg, called sciatica.
Very often people feel pain in the back, legs, in two different categories, I don't see the reason. "It hurts right knee, numb foot. I can't go on foot to climb the stairs" — describe in detail the position of the limbs, forgetting about the pain in the back, which preceded it. I was surprised by the "incompetence" of the doctor, who, instead of treating knee osteoarthritis, suddenly begins to engage the spine.
But it's the spine to the complex nervous system, muscle -, tendon -, and the circulatory system is the underlying cause of the sciatica.
Why is it sick, pull and numb feet
Classification of the pain syndrome of the hind legs
Origin of all kinds of back pain radiating to the extremities, can be roughly defined in three main groups:
Here all the DDP (degenerative process), which violated all metabolic processes in the tissues of the diet, and infectious, inflammatory diseases, and congenital dysplasia of the spine. The threat to the nerve fibers here double:
Vegetative-visceral disorders — this is a huge symptom, which includes all the diseases of the internal organs, and body systems related to impaired adjustment of the autonomic nervous system (ANS)
The autonomic system is closely linked to the Central principle of immediate feedback:
Especially often problems with the feet, the autonomic vascular disorders in the area of the lumbosacralis spine. Poor blood supply can lead to pain in the hind limbs, muscle atrophy in the legs.
Summing up the above we can say:
To find out why he's sick, you pull on numb legs, because the pain was originally in the back, only after a thorough diagnosis:
The treatment of pain in the legs
The treatment is fully sufficient to cause of the disease.
Treatment reflect pain is always a long process as usually occur in chronic, long-standing diseases that affect the human nervous system
Therefore, if a back pain, try to immediately determine the cause of the pain, and then start the treatment without waiting for the moment when it starts to hurt, insensitive, or drag the leg.
If the pain radiates to the leg, first of all think about lumbago (sciatica), or sciatica. Especially if your fingers numb pain in my leg. The most common case. Few remember that such symptoms can be other diseases, such as acute appendicitis.
Important: the rare diseases that the appearance of the described syndrome, we must not forget.
Pain in the lower back, associated with disease of the spine, which is the lower limb called lumbosciatica.
Degenerative process of the lumbar spine, the pain often develops because of the compression of a nerve root, radiating to the lower limbs is the main nerve of the lumbosacralis plexus, the hips, which is divided into fibula, tibia. The latter give the popliteal fossa causes, that the nerves of the lower leg.
Compression of nerve roots occurs when the destruction of inter-vertebral cartilage, the background of the degenerative reactions. This decreases the distance between the adjacent vertebrae, consequently, less openings in the spinal nerve roots. If the herniated disc, annoyed directly the protrusion of the hernia, tumors, abnormal tissue growths, while the spondylosis is bony overgrowths, called joints.
The background of the pathological process is always evolving inflammatory reaction in the form of edema, disruption of the surrounding tissues, worsening the blood circulation in the affected area, or inhibit the normal metabolism. Resulting increased muscle tone in the area of innervation of the roots of the disadvantaged, which leads to strengthening the pain.
The development of changes in the spine usually marked the end of the process the ossification of approximately 25 years is considered a normal physiological phenomenon. This is the premature aging of bones, cartilage structures may be suspended, if the principle of following the proper nutrition and strengthen the back muscles with special exercises.
Diseases of the spine occur in the following types of sciatica:
Important: the most common pain syndrome joint. One form of sciatica in its pure form is rare.
The chronic pain is almost a constant companion of life, which is almost used as the lucid interval is very small. That's why drag in the lumbar region, and along the branches of the sciatic nerve.
The development of pain syndrome may develop paralysis of the lower limbs caused by full compression, the engine rootl moliets. But the more such, can have serious consequences, the pathological process is not managed.
Often low back pain radiating to the leg, or the manifestation of diseases of internal organs. Limb, as long as this number is, the nerves pull and the pain can also be given in the groin.
This phenomenon can be explained by the peculiarities of the innervation of the pelvic organs, limbs.
