DIAGNOSIS
 
 
Acute Lumbago, also called Shanyao ( lumbar sprain~). Lumbago usually occurs when people bend their wrist to work with improper posture or strength, or when they overload their waists, which cause intensive contraction of the muscles leading to rupture of soft tissues such as the muscle fibers and fascia and other injuries. Or it may also result from sprain of the waist, which brings on impaction and malposition of the lumbar vertebral joints as well as rupture of the ligaments and joint capsules around the joints, or even protrusion of the lumbar intervertebral disc. }

Lumbago 

according to the diagnostic methods mentioned in the previous chapter, combined with experimental tests,tuina therapy has significant effects on lumbago excluding those caused by visceral diseases. Lumbago may clinically be divided the acute and the chronic types.

 

Chronic Lumbago: It refers to the intermittent sore and distending pain in the lumbus caused by delayed or uncured acute lumbago and chronic strain of the soft tissues, which is characteristic of extensive, but not sharp pain aggravated by fatigue and relieved by rest and also related to changes of weather. There is no marked disturbance, but a pulling sensation in waist movements .The diseased part is of preference for warmth and aversion to cold. Of special functional tests, the calcaneus-hip test and the lifting straightened leg test prove positive

This type of acute pain may have a sudden attack after trauma, injury of soft tissue is signed by marked tenderness, and tension of the muscles increases because of their protective contraction. When small joints are impaction or mallocated, local swelling is not evident, but there is severe pain. While in patients with protrusion of lumbar intervertebral disc, the pain may radiate to the lower limb. In the special lumbar functional tests of ordinary cases, positive results can  be seen in flexing test(Nrudzinski's sign) and straightening the abdomen test. In the patient with protrusion of lumbar intervertebraldisc, tests of lifting a straightening leg and increasing pressure on it and tests of dorsiflexion and plantar flexion of the great toe are both positive.
