Pinched Nerve Treatment at Laser Spine Institute Offers Many Advantages
Living with a pinched nerve can be unbearable. It can cause everything from tingling and numbness to burning sensations and shooting pains that radiate down your limbs. That discomfort results from bone spurs, scar tissue, or other matter pressing on a nerve, which inflames the surrounding area and even sends pain to the appendages controlled by that nerve. This pain can limit your activities and may even impede your ability to work. Laser Spine Institute offers a revolutionary treatment to reduce or eliminate your pinched nerve pain. It differs from physical therapy, pain medications, cortisone shots, and other treatments because it actually treats the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms. Traditional open-back surgery will also target the cause of pinched nerves, but it comes with a host of potential complications. These include an increased risk of infection, scar tissue, new back pain, and more.
Minimally invasive pinched nerve surgery from LSI drastically reduces the chances of those complications by:
- Not requiring hospitalization. The short procedure is outpatient and is conducted at one of LSI’s state-of-the-art surgical facilities. This reduces the risk of infection.
- Requiring only a small incision. Through that incision, a series of nesting tubes pushes muscle aside, giving the surgeon access to the pinched nerve site with minimal disruption to surrounding tissue and muscle. This reduces recovery time, the risk of infection, and the amount of scar tissue build up.
- Using only local anesthesia and deep IV sedation. This eliminates the need for general anesthesia which can be dangerous for older patients and can lead to a longer recovery time.
Those are just a few of the benefits you’ll experience if you get laser surgery treatment for your pinched nerve. For more information, contact Laser Spine Institute today. We’ll review your CT scan or MRI for free to determine if you’re a good candidate for the surgery.
