For the tens of millions of Americans who suffer from spinal stenosis, the condition can produce chronic pain and inability to walk properly. Spinal Stenosis occurs due to degenerative arthritis changes in the spine pinching on nerve roots, leading to aching, burning pain in the buttock area and legs.
Treatment options at the pain management clinics in Santa Ana and surrounding areas include both medication management along with interventional procedures. The medications may be oral or topical and often produce significant relief during periods of exacerbation. The type of medication may include NSAIDS, muscle relaxer or a short term narcotic.
Interventional treatments with Orange County and Los Angeles pain management doctors may include three different types of epidural steroid injections which have been shown to be over 85% effective in published studies. Pain doctors are often able to relieve pain from numerous nerves being pinched at the same time for months at a time.
Additionally, most patients with spinal stenosis suffer from back or neck pain due to the arthritis. Pain doctors can perform facet blocks, medial branch blocks and possibly the revolutionary radiofrequency ablation procedure for pain relief that may last up to 18 months.
The Orange County pain clinics in the Network accept over 50 insurances including all PPO’s, Medicare, Workers Compensation and Personal Injury Liens. Call (714) 261-9131 to schedule appointments for pain relief.
