Back pain is one of the most common complaints of Americans over the age of 50. While back pain is sometimes caused by injury or muscle strain, many times it is a result of a degenerative spine condition that has developed with age and repetitive motion.
Once you consult your physician to diagnose your back pain, you can move forward with the best treatment option to fit your condition and your lifestyle. Many treatments begin with conservative methods, such as physical therapy and chiropractic care or yoga and lifestyle changes. For many patients, several months of conservative treatments can yield lasting pain relief. However, if you have tried different types of conservative treatment for several months and you have not noticed a difference in your pain and symptoms, you should consult your physician about possible surgical treatment options to help you find pain relief.
Your physician may suggest that you look into the minimally invasive surgeries offered at Laser Spine Institute. Our procedures are consistently safer and effective alternatives to traditional open back surgery^, and our patients experience a shorter recovery time^ than patients who opt for the traditional procedure. We offer several types of minimally invasive surgery to treat the common spine conditions that cause chronic back pain.
Laser Spine Institute treatment for back pain
The minimally invasive decompression and minimally invasive stabilization procedures offered at Laser Spine Institute are performed in an outpatient setting. Because of our minimally invasive approach to spine treatment, our patients do not have to endure several days of hospitalization with an increased risk of infection and complications.
Our skilled surgeons perform the minimally invasive surgery through a small procedure that avoids the disruption of the muscles and tissue surrounding the spine, allowing our patients to have an aggressively lower risk of infection and a shorter recovery time.*
Take a moment to review the most common types of procedures we offer:
- Discectomy — A discectomy is used to treat a herniated disc, sciatica and pinched nerve as well as other spine conditions that cause a disc to become damaged and possibly move out of alignment, pinching a nerve and creating instability in the spine.
- Foraminotomy — A foraminotomy is used to treat foraminal stenosis, sciatica, pinched nerve, bone spurs and arthritis of the spine.
- Laminotomy — A laminotomy is used to treat spinal stenosis, bone spurs, arthritis of the spine, herniated disc, bulging disc and pinched nerve.
- Facet thermal ablation — A facet thermal ablation is used to treat facet disease, facet joint syndrome, facet arthritis and degenerative facet joints.
In the past ten years, Laser Spine Institute has helped more than 75,000 people find pain relief from chronic neck or back pain. Take a moment and read through a few of our previous patient testimonials to see what kind of an impact Laser Spine Institute has had in our patients’ lives.
