What is Lumbar Stenosis and how can I treat it?
Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS) is a degenerative condition of the lumbar spine. As we age, the soft tissue or “discs” between the vertebrae (bones that make up the spine) become worn down. This causes the spinal canal to narrow which can put pressure on the nerves in the lower back. This pressure can lead to radiating leg, buttock, and/or groin pain. People with LSS typically cannot walk father than 50 feet without feeling this pain and find relief when sitting down or leaning forward.
A solution to LSS is Vertiflex’s Superion® Indirect Decompression System. This device acts as an extension blocker, allowing the spinal canal to stay extended when standing and relieving pressure on those affected nerves. Superion is an alternative to traditional surgery, offering a minimally invasive procedure that is simple, safe and effective. Superion’s effectiveness is validated by years of clinical research and is FDA approved. Ask your doctor today if Superion is right for you or contact Paul Wu, MD.
