- Risk Factors
Spinal neuralgia, or nerve pain, can be an especially frustrating condition because it may not resolve itself like a normal injury, sprain or strain. Instead, the condition can become chronic and produce persistent symptoms of pain, tingling, numbness and muscle weakness. Spinal neuralgia can affect any level of the spine and is most commonly caused by age-related conditions like degenerative disc disease and facet disease.

Laser Spine Institute treatment for neuralgia
If you have been recommended for open spine surgery but are concerned about some of the risks and difficulties that can come with a traditional procedure, reach out to Laser Spine Institute. Our minimally invasive spine surgery uses a small incision, often less than 1-inch, to access the spine. This means an outpatient experience with a shorter recovery time^ compared to traditional open spine surgery.
To learn more about minimally invasive spine surgery at Laser Spine Institute, contact us today. We offer a no-cost MRI review* to see if you may be a candidate for one of our procedures.
