Pain from a lumbar pinched nerve usually travels from the low back, into the buttocks, and into the leg

The nerves form a continuous communication system between the different parts of the body and our brain. Spinal nerves are derived from the spinal cord.  Small nerve roots, which exit the spinal canal through small openings between the vertebrae, give rise to larger nerves called peripheral nerves. If damage to a peripheral nerve or a nerve root in the lumbar spine occurs, then lumbar pinched nerve pain can ensue.

Other conditions that may result in pinched nerve pain in the lumbar spine include a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and piriformis muscle pain.  Although treatment results vary greatly among nerve pain sufferers, the condition is best treated if the actual underlying irritating factor is identified.  Once the problem is accurately identified, a specific treatment approach can be implemented and evaluated.
