Spinal exercise test is performed when the lumbar intervertebral disc is more obvious. It can compress the spinal nerve root and cause pain in the waist, hip and lower limb along the sciatic nerve. When a certain position is taken to reduce or aggravate the compression of the nerve roots, the pain is also reduced, disappeared or aggravated. Check the feelings of relaxation, should face positively, and actively cooperate with the inspection.

Below normal:

Normal value:
no

Above normal:

negative:
The result of the test was negative. The waist flexes to one side and rotates without pain.

Positive:
This test can be used to diagnose the relationship between lumbar disc herniation and spinal nerve roots.

Tips: Patients with lumbar fractures are not suitable for this examination. Normal value

The result of the test was negative. The waist flexes to one side and rotates without pain.

Clinical significance

Abnormal results:

This test can be used to diagnose the relationship between lumbar disc herniation and spinal nerve roots.

1. The lumbar flexion or the flexion of the contralateral flexion and lateral flexion is aggravated, and the pain is reduced or disappeared when the affected side is flexed or laterally flexed, indicating that the nerve root is located at the posterior tip of the intervertebral disc.

2. The pain is aggravated when the waist is flexed forward and rotated to the healthy side, and the pain is relieved or relieved when the waist is flexed forward and rotated to the affected side, indicating that the spinal nerve root is located outside the prolapsed lumbar disc.

3. The pain is aggravated when the waist is flexed forward and rotated to the affected side, and the pain is relieved or disappeared when it is flexed forward and rotated to the healthy side, suggesting that the spinal nerve root is located inside the prolapsed disc.

People who need to be examined: people with abnormal pain at the waist.

Positive results may be diseases: transitional spine, computer disease, lumbar spinal stenosis, athlete's chest and back pain, lumbar vertebrae fracture, pediatric spina bifida, chronic low back pain

Taboo before inspection: no special contraindications.

Requirements for inspection: Check the feelings of relaxation, should face positively, and actively cooperate with the inspection.

Inspection process

The patient stands in position, and the active active spine flexes and rotates in all directions to observe the appearance and disappearance of pain, and the posture and angle when aggravating and reducing.

Not suitable for the crowd

Patients with lumbar fractures are not suitable for this examination.

Adverse reactions and risks

Nothing.
