PATHOPHYSIOLOGY OF LOW BACK PAIN Dr.

Rodrigo Rivera Sepúlveda Orthopedics and Traumatology Hospital Felix Bulnes University Andrés Bello Introduction • • • • • • Pain Anatomy Embryology Epidemiology Classification Pathophysiology Pain Set by International Association for the Study of Pain: "an unpleasant experienc e, sensory and emotional, associated with potential or actual damage, or describ ed in terms of such damage." IASP Pain • Help v / s Damage - Serves as a sign of care useful in certain situations, avoiding further damage , or help identify a disease - it loses its usefulness when it is severe, dispro portionate, without regard to the cause or the result is deleterious to the pati ent Pain Tissue Trauma Increased concentration of nociceptive substances (eg prostaglandi ns, histamine, serotonin, substance P. ..)

Back pain. Functional considerations. • basic biomechanical functions: 2. Weight transfer static and dynamic axial and appendicular skeleton. 3. Allow the support of physiological movements. 4. Prot ect the structures of the spinal cord and nerve roots. Physiology Pressurized core axial load stabilizing the anulus tight spinal unit allows full range of motion Pathophysiology of DIV Pathophysiology • disc disease: normal disc degenerative process. • It affects their three eleme nts: - Drying the kernel - the anulus fissure - sclerosis and osteophytes Pathophysiology Desiccation of the nucleus (Decreased proteoglycan) Low voltage drive anulus Una ble to stabilize spinal segmental hypermobility and abnormal traction osteophyte s fascetaria Pathophysiology of DIV Pathophysiology • Events abnormal degenerative process: - Rupture of anulus fibrosus: acute or p rogressive nuclear prolapse. - Symptomatic instability: For commitment to artic. fascetarias - secondary Estenorraquis: osteophytes, bulging ring and soft tissu e hypertrophy. Slipped disc • Rupture disc material bulging anulus. According severity can be: - Bulging dis c - disc extrusion (HNP) Slipped disc • Mechanical Compression: Deficit compromised root HNP L3-L4: 10% HNP L4-L5 and L5-S1: 90% Slipped disc • CK: autocrine and paracrine mechanisms: - Estimation. Nerve endings - Sensitiz ation of nociceptors - Promotes loss of proteoglycans (alters balance EZS / inhi bitors) - Neovascularization Back pain. Kinematic Bases • RISK FACTORS: 2. Age (20-60 years). 3. Static spinal posture. 4. Occupation and dynamic postur e. 5. Body vibration exposure prolonged. 6. Fitness and sports. 7. Psychological aspects. • • • Mobility KINEMATICS functional unit. Mobility of the spine. REPRESENTATIVE VALUES OF THE MOVEMENT KINEMATICS OF THE SPINE Pathophysiology • 2. 3. 4. 5.

Cinematic Bases Key Concepts • Clinical diagnosis and imaging • The vast majority is due to mechanical causes postural-tension of less significance. • The physician must recognize the warni ng symptom patterns: pain at rest and / or night pain.€Fever weight loss and mor ning stiffness polyarthralgia acute pain, persistent, refractory to symptomatic treatment.
