Pinched Nerve Symptoms May Be Relieved With Laser Spine Treatment
Pinched nerves occur when bone spurs, herniated discs, or other tissue press on a tiny nerve, prohibiting it from sending messages properly and irritating the surrounding tissue. As a result, you may experience pinched nerve symptoms including tingling, numbness, and a burning sensation or shooting pains that radiate down your limbs. If left untreated you could sustain nerve damage that results in a loss of reflexes and feeling in certain areas of the body, and even muscle atrophy. These pinched nerve symptoms can leave you in immense pain and rob you of your ability to go to work, care for your family or take part in our favorite activities. But thanks to Laser Spine Institute, you aren’t doomed to a life of chronic discomfort. We can utilize our state-of-the-art laser spine treatment to gently cut away the tissue that’s pressing down on your nerve and causing you pain. It’s a permanent fix that gets to the root of your problem; unlike the solutions other doctors may have offered you to simply manage the pain of your pinched nerve symptoms. And it’s a safer alternative to the open-back surgery that is sometimes offered as a last resort for pinched nerve treatment.
Here’s how it works:
- An LSI staff person reviews your MRI or CT scan to determine whether you’re a good candidate for laser spine treatment.
- You visit one of LSI’s treatment facilities where we conduct a medical history and physical along with lab work, an EKG, and an MRI or X-Ray if needed. A surgeon discusses the upcoming surgery with you.
- The out-patient surgery is performed using only local anesthesia and a small incision. The offending tissue is removed and the incisions are closed.
- If needed, a course of physical therapy is started.
All of this occurs in just five days and many patients feel substantial improvement in their pinched nerve symptoms in that short period of time. More than 85% of our patients tell us that they experience an increase in their quality of life within three months of their surgery. This means their pinched nerve symptoms have decreased or vanished completely, and they’re back to living life to the fullest.
