Differential Diagnoses: Low back pain & sciatica Shooting pain in the lower back, that radiates down to one leg. Degenerative disc The gradual deterioration of the disc between the vertebrae. Lumbar radiculopathy Nerve irritation caused by damage to the discs b/w the vertebrae. Herniated disk -Signs and symptoms include arm/leg pain, numbness/tingling, and weakness. The presenting low back pain symptoms indicate a sciatic nerve involvement since the pain is radiating down the posterior aspect of the left leg. The X-rays show lesions most likely at the L-5. Further tests that may be ordered include; Schober test. This test measures the ability of a patient to flex his lower back. The patient is asked to touch his toes while keeping the knees straight. A positive test will be less than 4 cm between the 2 marks indicating decreased lumbar mobility. A Straight Leg Raise (SLR) test can be used to determine if the patient has true sciatica. A positive SLR test usually indicates S1 or L5 root irritation. A FABER test can be used to rule out Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Pain and sacroiliitis. It is considered positive if movements reproduce pain or cannot be completed due to limited range-of-motion. Nerve testing of the lower extremities can be used to detect nerve irritation, while disc herniation can be detected with radiology testing, such as CT scan or MRI scan (McCance et al., 2014). According to El Barzouhi et al., (2013), patients with sciatica frequently experience disabling back pain. Sciatica or lumbar spine pain with nerve root involvement results in low back pain and leg pain. The condition generally resolves within a period of 8 weeks. If the low back pain does not resolve within 8 weeks, then consider using imaging techniques such as; CT scan or MRI (El Barzouhi et al., 2014). Diagnostic testing is not usually recommended within the first four weeks of the onset of low back pain, with no neurological symptoms, according to national practice guidelines (Dains, Baumann, & Scheibel, 2012). Evidence shows that unnecessary or routine imaging (X-ray, MRI, CT scans) for low back pain is not associated with improved outcomes. Patients who have early imaging had much greater health care use and costs, but they did not have better outcomes (AHRQ, 2015). References Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (2015).
