Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

Lumbar spinal stenosis is narrowing of the spinal canal in the lumbar spine, which results in compression of the nerves which causes low back pain, gluteal pain, and leg pain. Pain is made worse with walking and made better with rest and forward flexion at the waist.

Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatment

The injection therapy treatment of choice for lumbar spinal stenosis is an epidural steroid injection. This 10-minute, minimally invasive procedure involves using a live X-ray to place an epidural needle into the epidural space. A steroid is injected into the epidural space to decrease inflammation, reduce pain, enhance function, improve sleep and decrease the need for pain medication.

If you are experiencing pain as a result of lumbar spinal stenosis, call TPMG pain management specialist Dr. Dawson of TPMG Interventional Pain Treatment Center at 757-232-8844 about injection therapy. No one should have to live their lives with preventable pain. Try injection therapy today and start on the path towards feeling better.
