When a nerve in the lower spine becomes pinched, swollen or irritated due to a bone spur or herniated disc pressing against it, it may lead to the painful condition called lumbar radiculopathy. This condition is commonly found in patients between the ages of 30 and 50 and it typically includes symptoms such as weakness, numbness, foot or leg tingling, muscle spasms, or even sciatica. Lumbar radiculopathy can be alleviated non-surgically using treatments such as but not limited to therapy or medication.
