What is lumbar radiculopathy
: Radiculopathy is when you have something pressing on a nerve root in your low back region.

Causes of radiculopathy include:herniated disc, slipped disc or a pinched nerve. The lumbar or low back is the most common area to be injured post-accident or slip-and-fall. Nerve root problems are especially common in at L4-L5.

How does a car accident cause lumbar radiculopathy
A lumbar radiculopathy is when a nerve root is compressed in the lower part of your back. Cervical pressure is when the nerve root is compressed in your neck. The pressure can result from a Illinois car accident herniated disc or a slipped - pinched - bulging discs. This decompression surgery relieves the pressure on the nerve by removing the herniated bulging or slipped disc portions in your neck or low back that are pressing on your nerve.
