The herniated disc is the compression of the spinal cord or nerve root that occurs when a portion of an intervertebral disc moves. Hernias usually aff The herniated disc is the compression of the spinal cord or nerve root that occurs when a portion of an intervertebral disc moves. Hernias usually affect the disks are in the lower area of the back (lumbar) or neck (cervical spine). In the latter case we refer to cervical or cervical herniated discs. The pain caused by a hernia may extend from the back towards the leg and lead to leg pain, or to the arm. Most often, the rupture disk occurs by effect of natural aging and deterioration, but can also occur in younger people due to various causes. The trigger for a healthy disc to herniate can be a trauma, a violent blow or poorly executed effort. Cervical surgery may be necessary to reduce pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots, when pain is caused by a herniated disc or a bone of spinal canal. ...
It is the growth of a cell mass in the vertebrae. Cancerous tumors that originate in the spine are rare, but the column is commonplace to other cancer It is the growth of a cell mass in the vertebrae. Cancerous tumors that originate in the spine are rare, but the column is commonplace to other cancers that spread. One in four cancer patients will develop a tumor that metastasizes to the spine and cause pain and injury. However, not all tumors are cancerous column. ...
Lumbar disc hernia is an injury caused by degeneration or wear of the intervertebral discs of the spine, which act as shock absorbers between the Lumbar disc hernia is an injury caused by degeneration or wear of the intervertebral discs of the spine, which act as shock absorbers between the vertebrae. Lumbar hernia is one of the most common and causes compression or irritation of the nerve root, which often just manifesting as sciatic nerve pain, depending on the position and size of the hernia. The main causes of herniated discs are articulate aging, trauma or prolonged exertion. In addition, there are risk factors that favor its appearance, such as obesity, sedentary lifestyle or snuff. Treatment varies depending on the severity of the case, and can be solved with temporary resting, drug administration, rehabilitation exercises or even surgery, it indicated only for patients who do not respond to other treatments and the pain persists markedly. A herniated disc L4 the level of injury when the pain radiates from the front of the thigh, no loss of sensation in the inside of the leg and foot, and causes weakness in the knee. L5 level of injury occurs when the pain radiates down the back of the thigh and there is a loss of sensation in the side wall of the calf and the back of the foot. Therefore, disc herniation L4 and L5 can be distinguished by the symptoms they cause. ...
The spine surgery is to correct structural abnormalities of the spine that cause pain. It is indicated in cases where there is significant compression The spine surgery is to correct structural abnormalities of the spine that cause pain. It is indicated in cases where there is significant compression of the spinal cord or nerve roots, and when it is due undoubtedly to the structural abnormality detected. One of those treated by surgery of cervical spine injury is a herniated disc. Cervical surgery may be necessary to reduce pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots, when pain is caused by a herniated disc or a bone of spinal canal. Trauma surgery may also be required to stabilize the cervical spine and minimize the possibility of paralysis, when a fracture or dislocation causes a vertebral instability. Likewise, cervical surgery is also used in case of degenerative diseases. ...
The spinal fracture is a break or the collapse of one of the bones of the spine. This can happen for a strong impact in the area or for the loss of bone mass, osteoporosis caused by eg. Although removal of bone mass may also occur for other cusas: cancer, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hyperthyroidism and long-term use of corticosteroids. In these cases, the deterioration causes bone fractures can also occur as a result of normal activity, such as bending over or get something. Symptoms include a sudden onset of pain or a chronic, dull back pain and weakness or immobility of all or any part of the body. Traditional treatment for spinal fractures includes extended bedrest, pain medication and the use of corsets. These treatments can reduce pain, but do not stabilize the fracture or correct the related spinal deformity. In fact, a spinal fracture can cause irreversible damage as a total or partial paralysis of the injured. ...
Bone tumors are growths of new bone tissue that develops through the progressive multiplication of cells. Such tumors are divided into benign and malignant tumors. Benign tumors are composed of cells of normal tissue, they are slow growing and do not invade neighboring structures. Malignant tumors the cells are different from normal tissue to grow rapidly, invade nearby structures and can be played remotely by metastases. As for the symptoms, the pain can be intense, localized bit. When symptoms such as weight loss, fatigue and fever appear, you have to think about the existence of a malignant tumor. Surgery is the primary treatment in most of the tumors and may be accompanied by chemotherapy and radiotherapy. ...
The skeletal dysplasias are a group of diseases related to the low height of the individual due to a disturbance in the formation of bones and cartilage, especially in the extremities and spine. They are among the most frequent causes of stunting, and account for about 5% of genetic diseases of the newborn. There are hundreds of skeletal dysplasias, most of them genetic. The most common form of bone dysplasia is achondroplasia, in which there is a short stature by limb shortening. ...
Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure to treat degenerative diseases of the spine. The fusion consists in fixing two bone parts rigidly and irreversibly anchoring a joint using screws, plates and titanium rods. Its aim is to stabilize the spine to relieve local pain. In addition, decompression of the nerve roots relieves sciatic pain and difficulty walking, typical of stenosis, or narrowing of the spinal canal. The technique of spinal fusion is divided into anterior cervical fusion, posterior cervical arthrodesis and posterior lumbar spine fusion. The spinal fusion is performed in the operating room under general anesthesia. ...
Sports traumatology deals with the study and treatment of injuries sustained in sports. These can occur violently, overuse or defects training, technical deficiencies, misuse of clothing, lack of fitness, among other causes. It addresses a sports orthopedic lesions characteristic of certain sports for its predisposing factors and typical forms of presentation. The correct treatment in sports traumatology is based on the preparation of a history of each player that includes both family history and personal health, and history of injury or surgery and orthopedic aspects. These data must be added those obtained by conducting a review of admission that values sport postural aspects, skeletal muscle, joints, ligamentous, fitness, etc. and risk factors for the appearance of lesions depending on the sport. ...
