Cauda equina compression

Started by AlexJames03 on 10/12/2017 12:08pm

Does anyone know What is cauda equina compression? As I have just been diagnosed with this and all I can see is articles on syndrome and not compression?

Hello, AlexJames03--thank you for your question. Cauda equina syndrome involves the compression of the bundle of nerves at the end of your spinal cord, so whether it's called cauda equina compression or cauda equina syndrome, it essentially refers to the same condition.

This is an excellent article about what you may be experiencing: ( Cauda Equina Syndrome ).

We hope this helps, and we wish you the best of luck throughout your treatment.
