Spinal Stenosis in Staten Island, NY

Calmare Pain Relief Solutions offers treatment for spinal stenosis to the residents of Staten Island, Brooklyn, and the surrounding communities in New York.

What is spinal stenosis?

Spinal stenosis is a condition whereby the spaces in the spine narrow. This narrowing causes pressure and pain in the patient’s back, mainly in the lower back, and in most cases, can also cause root nerve compression.

Spinal stenosis can be a result from many things, including aging, arthritis, osteoarthritis, and other factors.

The most common symptom of this condition is pain. Narrowing of the spine can cause pain in both the spine and the upper legs. In addition, stenosis can cause root nerve compression that also will cause tingling and numbness in a patient’s legs. Other symptoms include clumsiness, difficulty walking, and hot or cold sensations in the legs.

How is spinal stenosis treated?

The condition may be treated with Calmare® Therapy, a non-narcotic, non-invasive medical procedure for the treatment of chronic pain. For more information about Calmare® Therapy, please click here.

Who is a candidate for treatment?

You may be a candidate for treatment if your spinal stenosis is severe or if you have had other treatments in the past to no avail. Your doctor will talk with you in depth about your medical history and will want to know about the severity of the pain you experience, the location of the pain, and any prior treatments you have undergone.

What is the recovery process?

Your most immediate part of the recovery process will likely include walking with a brace, which may speed your healing. You also may benefit from physical therapy sessions that typically last less than one week. The amount of recovery time will depend on the type of work you do. For instance, if you have a job that involves a lot of sitting, you may be cleared within a few weeks. If you have a job that requires some type of activity, the recovery time could be longer.

Patients are under medical management during the recovery phase with an emphasis on minimizing and reducing pharmaceutical usage.
