What is Lumbar Spinal Stenosis?
• It is a condition in which the lower spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal nerves in the lower back.
• Best visualized as a “kink in a drinking straw”, this compression can contribute to pain and mobility issues.
• Pain when standing
• Pain when walking
• Pain when sleeping
• Relief when sitting or bending forward
When to speak to a doctor:
Whether you were recently diagnose with LSS, have had surgery or are getting epidural steroid injections that are no longer providing pain relief, talk to a MILD doctor to see if you are a candidate for the MILD Procedure.
Your Next Step:
• mild® is an early treatment option to consider if more conservative therapies, such as physical therapy or pain medications, are not providing adequate relief. The mild® Procedure addresses a major root cause of LSS by removing excess ligament tissue to restore space in the spinal canal. The mild® Procedure typically takes less than an hour and can be performed through a single, tiny incision smaller than the size of a baby aspirin (5.1 mm)
• Increase standing time
• Increase walking distance
• Experience lasting relief over time
• Safety profile similar to an epidural steroid injection- 2 year stud has a safety profile similar to an epidural steroid injection, but with lasting results. In this study, there were no statistically significant differences in the safety profile between study groups.
