LUMBAR RADICULOPATHY - THE BENEFITS OF PROLOTHERAPY
Often many patients who have been diagnosed with lumbar radiculopathy actually have more than radicular pain that comes and goes with changes in activity or changes in position.
This means that the nerve is pinched intermittently possibly due to an underlying injury to the ligaments of the lumbar spine.
The ligaments become weaker and allow more movement than normal. The vertebra then moves more and the nerve can be pinched. This pinching causes severe pain along the legs and feet. If the radiculopathy is intermittent then the pain in the leg will be occasional or intermittent. Prolotherapy in the injured and weakened areas will stabilize the lumbar vertebrae. Intermittent radiculopathy typically responds well to prolotherapy.
