If you, like millions of other Americans, suffer from chronic back and leg pain as a result of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS), you know what it’s like to find many everyday actions difficult or even impossible.
LSS sufferers experience many frustrating issues in their daily life due to loss of mobility and painful symptoms that prevent them from fully engaging in activities they used to enjoy.
These symptoms may include:
- Diminished physical endurance
- ‘Pins & needles’ pain or numbness in the legs, buttocks or calves
- Difficulty maintaining balance
- Dull or achy pain that spreads to the groin, legs or buttocks
- Sciatic pain
Lumbar spinal stenosis is often the result of aging and “wear & tear” on the spine from everyday physical activities. With LSS, a narrowing of the spinal canal can cause pain, numbness, tingling or weakness in the back and legs.
Many people with LSS have already tried various treatments for relief, such as epidural steroid injections, rest/reduced activities, physical therapy / exercise or pain medications, yet they still suffer from this chronic pain condition.
The next step for many patients might normally be undergoing a painful, invasive back surgery that can mean long recovery times, which may necessitate time missed from work. Because this is often a problem for those who rely on a regular paycheck to meet their financial obligations, many people opt instead to simply live with the pain.
Until recently, these were the only options available for LSS patients. But thanks to the latest advances in state-of-the-art treatment options, there’s a new, minimally invasive solution to reduce or eliminate pain: the Superion® Indirect Decompression System (IDS).
The Superion® treatment gives new hope to LSS patients who have tried all other alternatives to back surgery, with nearly 90% of LSS patients still enjoying a more pain-free life for years after the procedure.
What is Superion®?
The Superion® Indirect Decompression System is a life-changing alternative to traditional back surgery. It is a simple, safe and very effective solution to relive pain for LSS sufferers.
The Superion® implant is a small titanium device that comes in various sizes to best match your spinal anatomy. The procedure is especially preferable to invasive back surgery because it can be done on an out-patient basis in usually under an hour. Surgical bleeding is minimal , and no bone or tissue is destroyed in the process.
The purpose of the implant is to keep the spine properly positioned to prevent nerves in your back from pinching. The device enables the spinal canal to stay extended when standing to relieve pressure on affected nerves.
