  • chronic
  • While not always symptomatic, DDD can cause acute or chronic low back or neck pain as well as nerve pain depending on the location of the affected disc and the amount of pressure it places on the surrounding nerve roots. (wikipedia.org)
  • include

  • Abnormal sensibility may include sharp, pricking, and stabbing pain in the extremities. (wikipedia.org)
  • degeneration
  • A better understanding of facet function and facet-mediated pain, possibly through classification of facet degeneration, may be needed to support the use of such devices. (wikipedia.org)
  • incision
  • Recovery took several months and involved a few weeks rest then a long period of physiotherapy. There was inflammation around the incision and I was constantly looking for pain relief from the burning sensation. I later found out through an MRI that scar tissue had formed around a nerve root which was most likely the cause of the burning.

  • neurogenic
  • Intermittent neurogenic claudication characterized by lower limb numbness, weakness, diffuse or radicular leg pain associated with paresthesis (bilaterally), weakness and/or heaviness in buttocks radiating into lower extremities with walking or prolonged standing. (wikipedia.org)

  • The prosthesis is indicated for back and leg pain caused by central or lateral spinal stenosis, degenerative disease of the facets with instability, and grade 1 degenerative spondylolisthesis with objective evidence of neurological impairment. (wikipedia.org)
  • Degenerative disc disease can result in lower back or upper neck pain, but this isn't always true across the board. (wikipedia.org)
  • Nevertheless, degenerative disc disease is one of the most common sources of back pain and affects approximately 30 million people every year. (wikipedia.org)
  • With symptomatic degenerative disc disease, the pain can vary depending on the location of the affected disc. (wikipedia.org)
  • relief
  • It's taken several years for the pain to settle down from the Laminectomy and follow up imaging shows that there is less pressure on the nerve root from the protruding disc at L5/S1. Overall, I'm pleased with the results even though it's taken years to get relief. (discectomypain.com)
