Back pain is very frequent in western countries and it represents a very high social cost. The treatment is based on five modalities: medication, physiotherapy, invasive technics, rehabilitation programs and psycho-social approaches. Several treatments may be proposed simultaneously and introduced gradually. Steroid administration by epidural injection is frequently used in Belgium, even though no prospective randomised studies have shown a real benefit over the long term. The indications for epidural injection must be carefully chosen. These include subacute pain (less than six months) in the lower limbs despite a well observed medical treatment. Patients are invited to give informed consent; the technic must be performed in an appropriate environment by an experienced physician. The initial treatment of back pain is medical. This pathology is multifactorial and the relief of symptoms is often incomplete. The patient should be urged to feel responsible for and involved in his treatment. [less ▲]

Assessment of chronic pain is one of medicine's most difficult challenges. A structured and flexible multidisciplinary approach allows full characterisation of the various components of the pain syndrome. This then allows the use of a rational combination of pharmacologic, physical, psychological, and surgical techniques. It is essential to gain the patient's confidence, collaboration, and compliance. Patients can better manage their situation when their needs are clarified and when care is oriented toward concrete therapeutic objectives. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to contribute to draw up reference values relating to electromyographic (EMG) parameters in dorsal and lumbar paraspinal muscles. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 75 healthy subjects without back pain underwent electromyography of multifidus bundles, which are innervated uni-segmentally by the dorsal ram of the spinal nerve. T8, L3, L4, L5 and S1 myotomes were systematically explored. Output variables were spontaneous denervation activity and quantitative EMG data obtained by multi-MUP (Motor Unit action Potential) analysis. RESULTS: No abnormal insertional or spontaneous activity (such as fibrillation, positive sharp waves or fasciculation) was recorded at rest. Neither sex nor age influenced motor unit action potential features in our series. Reference values were drawn up for T8 and L5 segmental levels using the mean values of 20 motor unit potentials in each patient studied, the reference interval being defined by the lower and the upper outlier limits on individual values. CONCLUSION: This study offers reference data to electromyographers to help better identifying possible myogenic or neurogenic pathological changes, especially in lumbosacral radiculopathies.

Lumbar paraspinal muscles examination is an interesting part of the electrodiagnostic evaluation of patients with suspected lumbosacral radiculopathy. However, many electromyographers hesitate to routinely include that technique in their study of lower limbs. The purpose of this paper is to specify the anatomy and electrophysiologic data of multifidus lumbar paraspinal muscle. Previous anatomic studies indicate that the medial lumbar multifidus and lumbar interspinalis muscles share unisegmental innervation by the dorsal ram of the spinal nerve. Electromyography of these muscles can improve the sensitivity of lumbosacral radiculopathy detection. Multi-MUP analysis of quantitative electromyographic parameters in lumbar paraspinal muscles, in a population of 75 healthy subjects without back pain, allowed to set up normal values for the L5 myotome.
