Hi, bear in mind that the regular xray of the lumbar spine only shows the visualized osseous structures, meaning the bony structures, so this is only helpful if you have an obvious displacement of your vertebral body, as in a spondylolisthesis, but if your concern is the intervertebral disk, if your thinking of a disk herniation, you should strongly consider having an MRI done, this would show the degree of the disk herniation, at the same time it can show you any narrowing of your spinal canal or vertebral foraminae.

npansin ko lang, whenever i gain weight mdyo may nraramdaman akong "ngawit" sa lumbar area ko whenever i bent down and then raise up..does this have anything to do with my previous condition?



Hi there!

I've been reading all the posts here and i can't help but put my 2 cents worth into this.

First of all, we should first establish the cause of your back pain...
there are several major cause of back pains ranging from musculo-skeletal spasms, to herniated discs, to narrowing of the spinal canal and foraminae, to tumors and infections, and a myriad of other causes. this can be diagnosed with a thorough history and physical examination...from there, a trial of rehabilitation and physical therapy coupled with a regimen of muscle relaxants and analgesics could be done. About 80% of back pains would resolve especially if this is due to a musculo-skeltal strain of the back muscles. The rest should be worked-up and investigated on more with other imaging modalities such as appropriate xrays and/or an MRI of the spine.

MRIs of the spine are an important part of the management of back pains although it is not supposed to be requested left and right owing to its cost. Usually, we orthopedic surgeons order an MRI if we are contemplating on a possible surgery or if history and physical examination points to a pathology in which surgery might be indicated. Examples of which are spinal cord compression secondary to a herniated disc, an abscess (Potts disease being the most common in the Philippines -- TB of the spine), a narrowing of the canal (Spinal Stenosis) or of the foramen (where the spinal nerve exits), of a possible tumor.

I agree with some of the orthopedic/spine surgeons the others have enumerated...i even know some of them personally...these are orthopedic surgeons who are known not only in our country but also have made there mark internationally.

But, after reading your account on your back pain (but without the benefit of seeing you and examining you in person), i think that your back problem is something which is amenable to conservative treatment. Meaning, prevention would be better than cure. Indeed, gaining weight (especially in the wrong places) would certainly aggravate your back pain. Remember that your spine bears your weight too, like your foot, ankles, knees and hips especially when at an upright position. Back hygiene is essential to be able to prevent your back muscles from straining, becoming spastic and therefore, becoming painful. Proper posture at work, at home and when sleeping should always be on your mind. There are a lot of literature available for this.

I hope i was able to help you regarding your problem.

best cure for back pain that is not caused by trauma, herniation or tumors: more sex! do the cat and camel while doing the deed. takes a longer time to come while doing lumbar exercises :rolleyes:

hi, mukhang meron kang radiating pain from your buttocks to your legs. tinatawag etong sciatica. naiipit ang nerve mo kapag matagal kang nakaupo. try to stand or walk and avoid sitting for prolonged periods of time. you can also take out your wallet because thick wallet can impinge on your sciatic nerve. you could put warm compress, take some anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen or naproxen (flanax) just as long as you have no allergies, kidney, heart problem, liver problem, stomach acidity nor pregnant. after 5 days you will feel a decrease in pain. but be sure to be checked by a doctor because it is hard to prescribe medications without asking histories and do physical examinations on you.

I dont ussually agree that an MRI is the best modality to find the reason a patient's low back pain. 20 percent of people without any history of low back pain will have a disc bulge on their MRI. And patients should also be warry of taking NSAIDS left and right. These can cause stomach ulcers that can lead to a more serious problem than their back pain.

Before you start any exercise, patients with slipped disk should know the direction of the slippage if is posterior, anterior, lateral, posterolateral to the right or left, and so on... The best exercise for this condition will be based on the direction of the slippage. Otherwise, you might be doing an exercise that will only aggravate the condition. Exercises are not the same for all patients with slipped disk (disk herniation). Just an info... ^_^

Had slipped disc before, got surgery using my companys medical insurance. Paid for nothing. I looked at the bill and it is really expensive phew, buti na lang may card. Instant relief from pain and to think tiniis ko ng 1 year bago ko naisip na magpasurgery. 

Note: sometimes pede kang ma misdiagnose ng doctors, another reason na tumagal ng six years yung sakin first check up kala nila I had problems elsewhere until I had an MRI nakita na nila yung problem.
