The topography of this pain and the associated clinical signs correspond perfectly to the nervous territory originating from T11-T12 and T12-L1. The most common pain is only in the lower back.

This syndrome is misleading because most of the time there is no pain in the responsible vertebral segment recognized by the patient.

Radiological examinations are most of the time normal.


Treatment of the D12-L1 segment:

  • Osteopathy, Physiotherapy
  • Posture treatment (posturologist podiatrist)
  • Infiltration with lidocaine and corticosteroids of the posterior D12-L1 joints
  • Rhizolysis of the posterior D12-L1 articulars.
