Sacral osteochondrosis is diagnosed quite seldom, most often it has the form of lumbar and sacral osteochondrosis and it has mixed symptomatology.
In the sacral department there are 5 vertebras. Clinical manifestations depend on what intervertebral cartilages are affected. Each intervertebral segment has a “responsibility zone” to which it directs the nerve-endings, which are started with a nerve root in the exit place from the backbone (at the basis of acanthas).
Between vertebras there is a flexible and shock-absorbing “insert”, it is an intervertebral cartilage, which compensates loading and provides flexibility of the backbone.
