Epidemiology, clinical and radiologic diagnosis | WFNS spine committee recommendations   Low back pain (LBP) is more common in adults than most people realize, with more than 60 percent of adults reporting back pain at some point or the other in their lives. However, in less than 5 percent of cases is disc disease responsible […]

Strong Association of Lumbar Disk Herniation with Diabetes Mellitus: A 12-year Nationwide Retrospective Cohort Study

diabetes and disk herniation

A study using Taiwan’s National Health Insurance database found a strong link between diabetes mellitus and lumbar disc herniation, revealing a significant discovery involving over 19 million people over a twelve-year period and highlighting the importance of understanding these associations.1 The study highlights that individuals with diabetes are more likely to develop Lumbar Disc Herniation […]

Exploring the Intersection: Integrating Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Functional Tests Assessment for Lumbar Disk Hernia Patients

disk hernia

Lumbar spine issues, especially disk herniations, afflict a large portion of the world’s population. But despite being a leading cause of lower back pain, diagnosing disk hernations (DH) accurately is challenging due to various factors. While Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) serves as the gold standard, their accessibility and cost limit their widespread use. Therefore, clinicians […]

Where lumbar disk herniation comes from

lumbar disk herniation model

Patients with lumbosacral radicular pain due to lumbar disk herniation (LDH) often attribute their symptoms to specific events they believe caused their condition. This recognition of potential triggers is an important aspect of understanding and managing their pain. The traditional model suggests that cumulative damage resulting from excessive forces or repeated loading leads to disk […]

Image Findings

Do Image Findings for Spine Relate to Low Back Pain? a narrative review It is well known that low back pain IS a pain on the globe1 with certain countries approximating 44% of their population with at least one episode in their lifetime.2 Drilling down on the cause of such back pain has been somewhat […]

The LBP Forecast After Lumbar Disc Herniation (LDH)

Lumbar Disc Herniation LDH

What does the LBP future look like after a lumbar disc herniation (LDH)? the spinal forecast Lumbar disc herniation(LDH) is an event, which could be progressive or instantaneous, whereby the nucleus pulposus of an intervertebral disc slips out of place. Normally, a healthy disc borders the nucleus with a fence-like structure called the annulus fibrosis. […]

Models of Disc Degeneration

Modelling Disc Dynamics

What is the goal of the Study? This Study aims to learn more about in-vitro models of disc degeneration. In this review paper, the authors sought a clinical perspective on the current state of in-vitro modelling related to the disruption, overloading and biochemical changes within the intervertebral disc.1 Why are they doing this Study? Learning […]

Posture and Disc Herniation

Posture and Disc Herniation

Goal of the Study? Logically, one would think that an intervertebral disc with internal disruptions would be more likely to experience a disc herniation. Currently, especially in physiotherapy, there is a push to steer away from concepts of disc damage for the fear of fear avoidance in patients. In this research1, published in the European […]

Disk Degeneration Higher than Reported in the Youth at this Hospital

disk degeneration

Goal of the Study? The goal of this study1 was to have a closer look at the younger population’s lower back MRI findings. Most epidemiological investigations on youth and back pain MRIs have looked at developed countries. In this study, the researchers looked at an underdeveloped country, Uganda, along with the youth’s clinical features of […]
