Thoracic or Lumbosacral Neuritis
August 29, 2014
Neuritis is the inflammation of nerves within the spine that causes pain and numbness to the areas that the nerves travel to within the body. Nerve roots exit out both sides of the spine column along its entire length. These nerve roots travels to all the different parts of the body. When a nerve in the spine is pinched or inflamed it can radiate pain to areas that are far away from the actual nerve itself. Nerves from the thoracic (middle) spine extend to the upper abdominal area as well as the back, neck, and area between the shoulders. Lumbar nerves extend through the lower back, gluteal muscles, upper thigh, calf, and down into the foot. Pain or numbness can be felt in any of the areas in which the nerves travel. Sciatica is the most common form of pain lumbar neuritis.
