Atlanta Spinal Stenosis Treatment

Atlanta Spinal Stenosis TreatmentOrtho Sport & Spine Physicians is Atlanta’s trusted leader in effective, minimally invasive treatment for Spinal Stenosis. Spinal Stenosis is a condition characterized by a narrowing or constricting of the spinal canal in the lower area of the spine. Our double board certified Interventional Spine physicians and orthopedic specialists are experts when it comes to treating this painful condition. 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 patient as an individual. By keeping our patient-to-provider ratio lower than most other practices, we are able to take more time with each patient. This enables us 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. The goal of our Spinal Stenosis treatments is to help our patients achieve long-term relief from their pain and other symptoms, improved function and a better overall quality of life.

Symptoms of Spinal Stenosis

Symptoms of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis include lower back pain, cramping in the legs, pain that radiates to the hips and legs, stiffness and/or numbness in the spine, hips and legs, muscle weakness and difficulty walking or balancing. With Lumbar Spinal Stenosis, the symptoms may appear gradually and then worsen over time.

Treatments for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis may include stretching, exercise, rest, anti-inflammatory medications (oral and injected) 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 Spinal Stenosis

It can also be caused by Osteoarthritis, bone spurs, bulging or herniated discs, injury or trauma to the spine or Spondylolisthesis. In rare cases, Lumbar Spinal Stenosis is caused by a congenital disorder.
