Negative for SLR, leg extension at the knee, heel walking or squattingAbdomen: WNLRectal: WNLNeurological: symmetrical DTRs, Negative for numbness or tinglingASSESSMENT:1.Lower back pain that extends down the left leg. Most likely musculoskeletal strain, R/O differential diagnosisDifferential Diagnosis (DDx):1.Sciatica2.Herniated Disk3.Spinal Fracture4.Spinal stenosis5.TumorDiagnosis/Patient Problem: Musculoskeletal strain is the most likely diagnosis. Musculoskeletal strain is an injury to the muscle as a result of stretching or tearing of muscle fibers beyond the normal limits (“Musculoskeletal Strains and Sprains”, 2015). Overuse and strain on the back muscles and ligaments can cause inflammation. Patients report that pain can be alleviated by rest, heat, and cold and aggravated with certain range of motion, walking, sitting or standing. Palpating around the spinal column can usually localize the pain, and range of motion in that particular area will increase the pain but no neurological deficits will be noted (Dains, Baumann, & Scheibel, 2016).R/O: Sciatica – Acute back pain with radiculopathy that is relieved with sitting. Positive for sitting knee extension. EMG test if problem is chronic.Herniated Disk – Lower back pain that radiates to the buttock and below the knee that presents for less than a month. Positive for SLR. No diagnostic study.Spinal Fracture – Trauma to the back and spine with palpable tenderness over the fracture site. A spinal fracture is seen as an emergency so the patients should be immobilized and x-rayed.Spinal Stenosis – Pain gets worse throughout the day which is aggravated by standing but relieved with rest. Presents with possible neurological symptoms and signs of osteoarthritis of the joints. No diagnostic study.Tumor – History of cancer with progressive pain that occurs at night and at rest. Weight loss, fever, and tenderness near tumor. ESR and bone scan test (Dains, Baumann, & Scheibel, 2016).PLAN:1.Collect a focused history asking various questions to include information about fever, trauma, systemic diseases, age, bowel and bladder issues, long term medications, location of pain, onset and duration of pain, pain characteristics, factors that aggravate and alleviate the pain, radiation of pain, stumbling when walking, numbness or weakness, family history, and any illnesses.2.Perform a physical assessment to include general appearance and behavior, gait, vital signs, skin, ears, eyes, nose, mouth, back and extremities, percuss and palpate back and spine, perform range of motion of the spine and straight leg raising, check hip mobility, examine feet, evaluate muscle strength, measurement for muscle circumference, Test sensory function, assess deep tendon reflexes, palpate abdomen, and check rectal sphincter.3.No diagnostic test would be performed because the patient did not have any neurological deficits.4.Educate the patient on ways to reduce low back pain by using the appropriate techniques to lift heavy objects. Give handouts with specifics techniques to use and what to avoid.ReferencesDains, J. E., Baumann, L. C., & Scheibel, P. (2016).
