Common problems involving the lumbosacral spine

Learn about some of the common problems involving the lumbosacral spine, its composition and some of the symptoms you may experience. Remember that if you suffer from persistent back pain, you need to see a doctor to obtain a proper diagnosis and treatment.

The lumbosacral spine

The term lumbosacral spine refers to two components of the spine: the lumbar region (lower back) and the sacrum, which is a bone that connects the spine to the pelvis. It is in this area where the nerve roots that descend from the skull-brain begin to branch out to the buttocks and legs, muscles of the lower abdomen and sphincters, which makes it a very sensitive area.

Common Problems


Bumps, injuries or bad posture can cause acute pain in the lower back. Usually, this pain disappears after a few days of rest. If this does not happen, it is likely that the injury is more serious or that the cause of the pain is something else. In any case, it is important to receive timely attention in the event of an accident.

Herniated lumbar disc

Herniated disc is the protrusion of the contents (or part of the contents) of the intervertebral disc due to a structural weakness, which can have multiple causes. This area is the most susceptible to herniation, as it carries most of the body weight.

Nerve clamping

Nerve clamping puede estar relacionado a una hernia de disco pero no necesariamente. Esto puede ocasionar un daño neurológico que derive en dolores intensos, así como en debilidad muscular en la parte baja del cuerpo (piernas).


To determine the exact cause and design the best course of treatment, physicians require imaging studies (such as MRIs or X-rays, as determined), as well as knowledge of the patient's medical history, among other things.
