Lumbar Radiculopathy Definition and Symptoms

Lumbar radiculopathy is damage to the discs in between the vertebrae in the spine. The damage occurs because of deterioration of the outer ring of the disc, or traumatic injury. Symptoms include pain that moves from your lower back down to your legs, pain that worsens when you cough or sneeze, and numbness or tingling in the legs.
