What are the symptoms of cauda equina syndrome compression? How to heal faster?

Cauda equina syndrome is a condition that occurs when the cauda equina nerve is compressed. Its clinical manifestations are mainly low back pain, lower extremity weakness, paralysis, bowel and bladder dysfunction, lower extremity varicose veins and other symptoms.

 Let’s take a look at the specific symptoms of cauda equina syndrome:

1. Low back pain

Low back pain is mostly acute onset, with no clear incentive for sudden onset. After sciatic nerve root compression, patients present with lower extremity pain, usually radiating along the lumbar vertebrae to the buttocks, and often with buttock muscle spasm syndrome.

The symptoms are: (1) Sciatica: mostly intermittent or persistent low back pain or tingling pain associated with spinal stenosis.

(2) Decreased lumbar muscle strength: incomplete claudication and difficulty in walking.

(3) Straight leg raising test: For patients with lumbar intervertebral disc herniation when the patient is lying down or in a semi-recumbent position, 5-6 heel raising tests may be positive on each side. These changes may be related to chronic psoas strain or may be due to pelvic tilt.

2. Lower limb weakness

Lower extremity weakness is the main manifestation after cauda equina compression and is the main cause of paralysis, especially in the lumbosacral and lower extremity range of motion.

Clinically, muscle weakness of both lower extremities is the most common. Mostly unilateral in the early stage. Later, it gradually developed to paralysis of both lower extremities, sometimes involving both sacroiliac joints and sacrum. In severe cases, symptoms of perineal numbness, decreased sensation or even disappearance may occur.

3. Paralysis

Spinal cord injury combined with cauda equina syndrome is characterized by fibrosis in the area of ​​nerve distribution compressed after spinal cord injury. Physical activity disturbances, sensory disturbances, and bowel and bladder dysfunction may occur. There are no clinical symptoms in the early stage. When the lesion worsens, the large vessel compression reaction type appears.

In the early stage, there are hypoesthesia and bowel and bladder disorders, and in the middle stage, there is increased muscle tone. In the late stage, sensory disturbance and bowel and bladder dysfunction due to nerve damage, severe paralysis or surgical treatment.
