Severe Spinal Stenosis L4 L5 Treatment
  • Spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the gaps in the
    spine, can compress your spinal cord and the
    nerve roots which exit each vertebra.
  • According to orthopedic spine specialists,
    aging-related alterations to your spine are a
    frequent cause of spinal stenosis.
  • The spinal cord or the nerves may get irritated,
    compressed, or pinched due to restricted space,
    resulting in back discomfort and sciatica. Spinal
    stenosis typically worsens over time gradually.
  • This implies that even if alterations may be seen
    on X-rays or other imaging tests if they are done
    for another purpose, you might not have signs
    right away.
  • Depending on where and how serious the spinal
    stenosis is, you can feel pain, numbness,
    tingling, or fragility in your neck, back, limbs,
    fingers, or feet.

Severe Spinal Stenosis L4 L5 Treatment
  • Causes and Symptoms
  • Many factors can lead to spinal stenosis. They
    all alter the spines structure, which results in
    a narrowing of the area around your spinal cord
    and the nerve roots that leave the spine. There
    are several reasons for spinal stenosis, these
  • Osteoporosis and arthritis spurs
  • Swollen discs
  • Enlarged ligaments
  • Fractures and wounds to the spine
  • Spinal tumors

Severe Spinal Stenosis L4 L5 Treatment
  • Usually, the narrowing of the spinal canal occurs
    gradually and worsens over time. Although spinal
    stenosis can develop anywhere along the spinal
    column, it often impacts the neck and lower back.
    The spine surgeons in the UK claim that each
    persons symptoms are unique and can change over
    time. Spinal stenosis in the lower back (lumbar)
    and neck (cervical) can cause the following
  • Sore neck
  • Arm, hand, foot, leg, or another body part numb
    or tingling
  • Heavy sensation in the legs that could cause one
    or both legs to cramp
  • Difficulties with balancing
  • Sluggishness or awkwardness
  • An ache that subsides by bending slightly
    forward, leaning
  • Lower back pain

Severe Spinal Stenosis L4 L5 Treatment
  • Treatment of Spinal Stenosis at L4 and L5
  • Laminectomy is the procedure used most frequently
    to treat spinal stenosis in the L4-L5 area.
  • During this procedure, the lamina is either
    entirely or in part removed to widen the spinal
    canal and relieve nerve compression.
  • The vertebral arch is made up of a little piece
    of bone called the lamina. It covers the back of
    the spinal canal.
  • By removing all or part of this bony spinal
    component, your spinal surgery can effectively
    address the signs and indicators of spinal
  • However, after a laminectomy, spinal instability
    is a possibility.
  • Many spinal stenosis surgeons have combined the
    procedure with spinal fusion to reduce this risk.

Severe Spinal Stenosis L4 L5 Treatment
  • The following conventional therapies are
    frequently used to treat spinal stenosis at L4
    and L5.
  • Exercises for joint stabilization, joint
    mobilization, heat or ice therapy, massage, and
    physical therapy may also be used.
  • Changing ones habits and activities, such as
    giving up smoking and beginning a low-impact
    exercise program,
  • Chiropractic treatment, which employs physical
    adjustments to improve spinal alignment,
  • Acupuncture is a treatment that might encourage
    the bodys own healing mechanisms.
  • These are some conditions when using a spinal
    cord stimulator can help.
  • One of the best spine specialists in the UK who
    has successfully treated people with spinal
    issues is Jwalant S. Mehta.
  • For comprehensive care for any spine-related
    issues, consult Dr. Mehta.
