Spinal Stenosis

How Do I Know if I Have Spinal Stenosis?

If you have been experiencing the following symptoms, you might consider making an appointment with Southern Laser Spine:

  • 
Back or neck pain
  • Radiating pain
  • Loss of sensation or weakness in the limbs

Spinal stenosis is most commonly caused by the natural effects aging, but deterioration of the spine can cause a number of changes in the condition of your spine.

You should talk with your doctor about your condition, and may want to consider other risk factors for spinal stenosis:

  • Trauma or injury to the spine
  • Tumors in or around the spinal area
  • Spondylolisthesis, a condition where one vertebra slips out of place

Do I Have Spinal Stenosis?

What is the Right Treatment For Me?

There are several non-surgical options for treatment of spinal stenosis that you should consider first before considering a more invasive approach like surgery. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), steroid injections, or combining medication or injections, along with physical therapy, can all help to improve your spine’s conditions.

When your have used non-surgical treatments for your condition and do not experience relief, your doctor may recommend surgery to help maintain stability in the spinal canal and relieve any pain associated with spinal stenosis.

We generally only recommend surgery for patients suffering from severe pain or immobility. Make an appointment with Southern Laser Spine to discuss your condition and possible treatment options today!
