Spinal stenosis is the condition when the spaces within the spine become narrowed, exerting pressure on the nerves running through the spine. This most often occurs in the neck and lower back. While mild spinal stenosis may not present with any symptoms, others may experience pain, tingling, muscle weakness and numbness that progressively gets worse. Full Range Spine & Ortho provides spinal stenosis treatment at our four clinics around Los Angeles.
Spinal stenosis most commonly occurs along with the deterioration of spinal osteoarthritis, as this degenerative disease breaks down spinal joint cartilage. The vertebrae become compressed, and this narrows the space within the spine where nerves travel. The two main types of spinal stenosis, classified according to location, are cervical stenosis and lumbar stenosis.
Other common causes of spinal stenosis can be tumors, thickened ligaments, herniated discs or spinal injuries or trauma.
Los Angeles Spinal Stenosis Treatment with Regenerative Medicine
Spinal stenosis is diagnosed through x-ray and MRI scanning, which can reveal the location and extent of the narrowing in the spine. Dr. Roy Nini and Dr. Paul Lee are Los Angeles pain management experts who can treat spinal stenosis once an accurate diagnosis is made. Full Range Spine & Ortho uses various regenerative medicine therapies as non-invasive methods of treating orthopedic conditions like spinal stenosis.
Treatment will focus on relieving the condition that caused the narrowing of the spine corridor to reduce or eliminate pressure on affected nerves. It will also seek to facilitate healing when possible by providing a boost to the body’s natural healing processes. This will help to reduce pain and discomfort while restoring function and mobility.
Possible treatment avenues may include physical therapy, spinal decompression, massage, acupuncture, joint injections, viscosupplementation, biological treatments, stem cell therapy, intradiscal PRP (Biologics), sympathetic blocks and interventional pain management. Dr. Nini and Dr. Lee will recommend the best possible treatment modalities to form a customized treatment plan for your unique condition.
