New Test to Determine if Back Surgery is Needed to Treat Spinal Stenosis

A team of researchers has discovered that a technique to measure pressure in the spinal canal can increase the chances of accurately determining whether a patient with back pain requires spinal surgery. The results of the research were recently published in the European Spinal Journal, and researchers from Perth and Germany have announced that a technique that is used in place of conventional magnetic resonance imaging Davante Adams Authentic Jersey (MRI) may actually increases diagnostic accuracy.

The researchers focused on back pain that is typically related to degeneration Davante Adams Jersey resulting in spinal stenosis. As a result of the degeneration, the spine may change and cause the spinal canal to become narrower. Persons, who suffer from lumbar spinal stenosis may experience severe symptoms, like leg pain, weakness, and numbness. The pain may radiate while Davante Adams Kids Jersey the person Davante Adams Womens Jersey is walking or standing for long periods of time. Not surprisingly, such pain can have a severe impact on a person’s ability to perform routine activities and his ability to work and earn a living. But not everyone who has a narrower spinal canal ultimately suffers from lumbar spinal stenosis.

The researchers were looking at a technique that could help determine whether a person is eligible for spinal surgery to treat lumbar spinal stenosis. Spinal surgeons have always found it difficult to determine exactly which segments of the spine need to be included in the surgery to treat the pain efficiently.

As part of the study, Davante Adams Youth Jersey the researchers inserted a catheter with a pressure sensor into the spinal canal. Using this, they were able to measure the spinal fluid pressure accurately. They found that among patients who suffered from lumbar spinal stenosis, the pressure at the stenosis level was approximately 3 times higher than at the unaffected levels.

Spinal stenosis can leave a person in severe pain and unable to earn a living. Spinal stenosis is included in a list of impairments that qualify for Social Security disability benefits.

"I want to thank the office of Marc Whitehead and especially Jaime Almaguer who was my caseworker. I had begun the disability process myself until I heard about this lawyers' office in Texas. Seemed strange working with folks across the country that I would never meet. Nevertheless, they were able to get my disability first time around. I felt comfortable discussing my issues privately with them and being able to let Jaime do the work. He was responsive, caring and very professional. Thank you all so much, this has changed my life."  Lynne via
