Common spine conditions that can be treated by Laser Spine Institute’s expert medical team in St. Louis

Living with neck or back pain is not an uncommon occurrence. In fact, nearly 80 percent of all Americans will experience this type of pain at some point in their adult life. Though many people are able to find relief through conservative treatments rather quickly, for approximately 10 percent of them, the pain will be lasting and severe, making spine surgery the only option for reducing their symptoms improving their quality of life. Laser Spine Institute offers these patients a minimally invasive alternative to the traditional open neck and back surgeries offered in a hospital setting.

Some conditions commonly treated at Laser Spine Institute include:

These common spine conditions are often caused by the natural deterioration and weakening of the spine with age. Factors leading to increased wear and tear of the spine include weight gain, inactivity, weakened core muscle and repetitive motion, all of which can break down the components of the spine and cause a pinched nerve. If you develop a pinched nerve due to a common spine condition, you may experience symptoms like pain, numbness, tingling, muscle weakness and limited mobility.

The purpose of our minimally invasive spine surgery is to relieve pressure on local nerves, nerve roots and the spinal cord which, in turn, relieves discomfort. If you are experiencing the chronic pain and symptoms that generally accompany these and other common conditions, contact Laser Spine Institute today for more information.
