What Is Lumbar Spinal Stenosis And Its Possible Symptoms
Lumbar spinal stenosis (or LSS) is a spinal condition where the lower spinal canal becomes narrowed and often results in pain in the lower part of the back. This narrowing can cause pressure on the spinal cord, triggering the sensitive nerves which carry pain and discomfort signals to your brain. While most commonly affecting the lower back, spinal stenosis can occur at any point along the spine, causing localized discomfort in the affected vertebrae. Some of the most common causes of lumbar spinal stenosis include:
- Osteoarthritis (Caused by aging and general wear of the spinal cord from everyday activities)
- Rheumatoid arthritis (Where the immune system attacks and inflames otherwise healthy tissue)
- Narrow spinal canal (Caused by a genetic condition or injury)
- Injury to the vertebrae
- Spinal tumors in the lower back
- Degenerative bone diseases
- Previous failed or partially successful surgery and scarring in the spine
Most sufferers of LSS experience intense pain and furious burning sensations, mainly in the lower back. Additionally, in some cases, you can lose feeling in affected areas or experience numbness in the feet. Weakness in the feet is a common sign of LSS which can often lead to overcompensation where patients may slap the foot down hard, leading to an increased risk of falls or foot injury. Lumbar spinal stenosis can also cause significantly more severe symptoms in some but not all cases, which include the following:
- Loss of bladder control
- Severe or increasing numbness in the lower body
- Tingling sensations in the feet, legs, hips, and legs
- Severe back pain or discomfort in the lower extremities that lowers mobility and makes it difficult to stand or walk
It may be time to find a doctor and treatment plan if you suffer from these symptoms. If you haven’t been diagnosed with LSS but are suffering from similar symptoms, the process is little more than a simple x-ray or another similar imaging test like a CT or MRI. In the past, LSS has been treated via injection or surgery; however, that is no longer the case as the experts at Macomb Pain Management can help and see if the mild® treatment is proper for you.

What Is mild® And How Does It Relieve Pain Without Surgery Or Medication?
Mild® is an exceptional and low-impact procedure available at Macomb Pain Management that can relieve lumbar spinal stenosis discomfort in patients via minimally invasive treatment directly to the affected areas of the spinal column. Unlike invasive surgery, the most common treatments for LSS are physical therapy, chiropractic procedures, and pain medication. However, those treatments may not be adequate, where a minimally invasive procedure may provide relief that others cannot. Mild® can be paired with most other treatments, meaning you may continue physical therapy, pain medications, and different strategies for further pain relief. Additionally, mild® is long-lasting, unlike steroidal epidural injections and other temporary treatments.
The mild® procedure entails a safety profile and level of risk compared to a steroidal injection, with a similar short recovery time. Further, it is a straightforward outpatient procedure, which a doctor typically finishes within an hour of starting and requires little to no time in a recovery room. With almost 85% of LSS pain being caused by a thickened ligament, the doctors at Macomb Pain Management can use the mild® procedure to reduce the excess ligament tissue permanently. This process is similar to removing a kink in a hose or drinking straw, where the pressure is on the walls of your nerves, and it allows for a healthy and natural reduction in discomfort.
Additionally, mild® is genuinely a minimally intrusive treatment method and uses an incision of only 5.1 mm, the size of a baby aspirin pill. It only uses a mild local anesthetic around the injection site and does not require total anesthesia, thus reducing the overall risk of the procedure. This tiny injection site means no unsightly scars or long recovery times. Most patients who undergo treatment from Macomb Pain Management can expect to resume daily activities within twenty-four hours and see a reduction in pain within days of the procedure.
What To Expect After A mild® Treatment And How To Recover
Mild® is an outpatient-focused procedure and will not impact your everyday routine or require significant recovery time. Patients who undergo a mild® process can expect to recover in as little as twenty-four hours. Additionally, your doctor from Macomb Pain Management will develop an at-home or in-office physical therapy program to help adjust your body and muscles to restore mobility. In rare cases, the procedure may require additional follow-up and extended treatment. However, in almost all circumstances, you can expect to be back on your feet and feeling better within the week. Depending on the severity of the condition, most patients will take a few weeks to regain full mobility.
