Low back pain can result from an acute injury or from chronic overuse that leads to arthritis or can break down the fluid-filled disks in your spine that act as shock absorbers.
The changes caused by the damage may put pressure on a nearby nerve root, pinching it. You may recognize the symptoms such as sharp pain in your neck, shoulder, arm, hand, or low back pain, may also have tingling or numbness.
The cause of pain can be vary, such as strain muscle or ligaments, muscle spasm, damaged disc/bulging disc, injury, fracture, sciatica, abnormal curvature of the spine, osteoporosis, tumor, tuberculosis, and cauda equine syndrome.
How to Get Rid of Low Back Pain?
Low back pain usually resolves with rest and home remedies, but sometimes need other options as medication, physical therapy, corticosteroid injection, and other medical procedures.
Appropriate treatment depends upon what the doctor concludes is the cause of the low back pain. To determine what is causing the pain, the doctor needs information, such as the history, physical examination and imaging (MRI, X-ray, CT scan) which allows us to look into the interior of the body.
If severe pain and neurological symptoms cannot be controlled by conservative care, a medical intervention will be necessary. Aim of the discectomy is to remove the extruded disk tissue and to decompress or to completely set free the pinched nerve.
Percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) is one of the less invasive treatments for lumbar disc herniation. It has the advantage that it can be performed on a day care basis under local anesthesia with shorter length of hospitalization and early return to work thus improving the quality of life earlier.
Compared with open discectomy, PELD could have less muscular injury and bleeding, and less scar formation within the spinal canal.
