- Spinal stenosis –The condition in which the spinal canal narrows & compresses the spinal cord & nerves at the level of the lumbar vertebra.
- Piriformis syndrome –This is a neuromuscular disorder that occurs when the sciatic nerve is compressed or otherwise irritated by the piriformis muscle causing pain & numbness along the path of the sciatic nerve.
