Spinal Stenosis Q & A

Your spinal cord runs through a hole in your back, and Stenosis occurs as this hole narrows for various reasons. Since it pinches the spinal cord, this problem can cause you extreme discomfort. As the spinal cord is full of nerves that are used to communicate senses to your brain, it may lead to more serious issues, such as severe pain and paralysis if the condition persists.
Pain is the most frequently experienced symptom of Spinal Stenosis. You might also experience numbness, fatigue, and difficulty walking. Whether you're sitting or standing in the same place for an extended period of time, you may feel significant discomfort. Others have noticed exhaustion, nausea, and body pain as a result as well. The narrowing of the spinal canal is one of the most evident symptoms of Stenosis. There are a couple of further examinations, such a s an MRI, that must be performed to determine if this is indeed the case.
There are a variety of treatment options we can utilize for Spinal Stenosis. Each case is unique and varies depending on where on the spine it’s located and how serious the Stenosis is. If it’s deemed necessary, surgery is one of the major options we can use to treat it. However, we prefer to begin with the least invasive options. One of the most common minimally invasive procedures is regenerative medicine. This process helps to form new tissue that replaces the tissue you lost in your spine. We might also start patients off with epidural steroid injections, soft tissue injections, or trigger point injections to provide pain relief. Anti-inflammatories are frequently provided alongside acute pain medications until the situation improves. Additionally, we have a variety of minimally invasive and state-of-the-art procedures such as MILD (minimally invasive lumbar decompression). MILD is a recently developed procedure that is non-surgical and minimally invasive. It allows us to increase blood flow by extracting unneeded ligaments and bone in the spinal canal. This can be done under sedation and doesn’t require the use of a scalpel. Because of this, we can avoid post-operative scarring that is typically present in open operations of more considerable size. When all is said and done, this procedure can take less than an hour to complete.
Recovering from Stenosis is dependent on how severe the case is. In the event that surgery is needed, recovery time may be longer than usual. Because there is an abundance of sensory places on the back and the majority of movement is done with this part of the body, surgery here can be particularly dreadful. However, Dr. Rehan Ali will help to come up with an effective treatment plan that heals your Spinal Stenosis and allows for a quicker recovery.
