Lumbar Radiculopathy

Atlanta Lumbar Radiculopathy Treatment

Atlanta Lumbar Radiculopathy TreatmentFor expert Lumbar Radiculopathy treatment in Atlanta, Georgia, you can turn to the experienced professionals from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. Lumbar Radiculopathy is a painful condition that is caused by a compressed nerve in the lower area of the spine. Our double board certified Interventional Spine physicians and orthopedic specialists are experts when it comes to treating chronic and painful spinal conditions. We are committed to using the most minimally invasive treatments available to help patients find long-term relief from their back pain and other symptoms and return to normal activity levels.

At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we see each and every patient as an individual, not just a number. By limiting the number of patients that we see per day, we are able to spend more time with each patient. This gives us the ability to take a more thorough medical history, to conduct a more complete physical examination and to understand each patient’s unique challenges and goals for treatment. By taking the time to accurately diagnose pain and other symptoms and get to the root of the problem, we are able to recommend more effective and long-lasting solutions.

Symptoms of Lumbar Radiculopathy

In addition to lower back pain, patients with Lumbar Radiculopathy may experience other symptoms including numbness, tingling or weakness along the course of the nerve. Treatment for Lumbar Radiculopathy is focused around relieving the compression of the affected nerve. In some cases, this can be achieved using anti-inflammatory medications (oral or injected), exercises to build support in the back and physical therapy.

In the cases where all conservative treatments have been exhausted, surgery may be considered. In this case, minimally invasive, endoscopic spine surgery may be recommended. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is pleased to be one of the Southeast’s leading providers of minimally invasive endoscopic spine surgery (also known as “band-aid back surgery"). With endoscopic spine surgery, patients go home with an incision so small that it can be covered with a regular sized band-aid and enjoy fewer complications and a shorter recovery time as compared to traditional open back surgery.

Causes of Lumbar Radiculopathy

Lumbar Radiculopathy is most commonly caused when nerve problems in the spine are left untreated. The longer that this condition remains untreated, the more serious it will get. In the late stages of Lumbar Radiculopathy, patients may start to lose motor function, reflexes will begin to be impaired and radiating pain will worsen. If you think you may be suffering from from this spinal condition, contact our Atlanta Lumbar Radiculopathy Treatment Specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today so we can get you on your way to achieving long-term pain relief, improved function and a better overall quality of life.
