LOS ANGELES, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- There are few certainties in life, but one reliable truth remains: As we get older, our health afflictions can become increasingly challenging. Of all the health concerns a person might face, one of the most common – and most troubling – is spinal stenosis. Fortunately, with laser back surgery from Dr. Rezaian and his team at the California Orthopaedic Medical Clinic, Inc., those suffering from spinal stenosis are afforded an opportunity to live day-to-day without the pain, aches and weakness that commonly afflict those with the ailment. Spinal stenosis treatment from Dr. Rezaian involves the cutting-edge Universal Endoscopic Laser Discectomy (UED), allowing for a new level of precision in treatment, a faster recovery and substantially reduced risks. If you've experienced the frustration and disappointment of a failed back surgery from a lesser surgeon, Dr. Rezaian and his remarkable team is the best possible option for treatment with life-changing results.
Spinal stenosis occurs when the small spinal canal – consisting of the nerve roots and spinal cord – becomes compressed, causing a "pinching" feeling along with pain, cramping, weakness and numbness. Some people suffer from an unusually small spinal canal from birth, though over time, spinal stenosis eventually affects a majority of people 50 years of age or older. The two types of spinal stenosis are listed below:
Lumbar Spinal Stenosis
Lumbar stenosis occurs in the lower back, leading to symptoms of sciatica such as tingling, weakness and numbness that radiates from the lower back into the buttocks and legs.
Cervical Spinal Stenosis
Cervical spinal stenosis occurs in the neck, and can be far more dangerous, as it involves compression of the spinal cord, in some cases leading to significant weakness or even paralysis. Treatments for spinal stenosis include exercise and stretching, activity modification and epidural injections, however, in many cases, a person suffering from the ailment might benefit from Dr. Rezaian's expert surgical treatment.
