Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is like the lime build-up on the inside of a garden hose. Over time, it narrows the diameter of the hose, just as spinal stenosis narrows the spinal canal.

Fracture Spinal Process

The Transverse and Spinous Process can be fractured, and in most cases is quite painful but requires only conservative treatment.

Disc Protrusion

The intervertebral disc can rupture and cause pressure on the nerves that provide power and sensation to the legs. The common causes are lifting and twisting injuries, with a risk also from falls or flexion.

Compression Fractures

Percutaneous vertebroplasty is a relatively new minimally invasive procedure used to treat compression fractures if traditional conservative therapy fails. Vertebroplasty may be able to offer spine stability to patients with spinal fractures due to osteoporosis and those who have had trauma or tumors of the spine.
