Hello and welcome to HCM,
The vertebrae referred to as 'C' vertebrae are the cervical vertebrae
are present in the neck region.
The vertebrae referred to as 'L' are those present in the lumbar region.
The nerves emanating from the lumbar region supply the lower limb.
Disc also called inter vertebral
discs are the cartilagenous discs present in between two adjacent vertebrae. They are responsible for friction less motion between vertebrae.
These discs may undergo degenerative changes and bulge from their normal position.
This bulging may impinge upon the nerves and thus cause pain in the region supplied by these nerves.
So, the pain in the hips and hips is due to this problem.
This condition may be treated conservatively by rest alone.
If not controlled by rest, surgical intervention may be resorted to.
is showing certain changes at the level of cervical vertebrae. Spondylosis
is caused by fusion of adjacent vertebrae which again is degenerative condition.
You need to visit an orthopedician to manage this condition.
Thanks and take care.
