Pain Management Interventions In Lumbar Spinal Stenosis: A Literature Review London Spine Lumbar Stenosis

The article is a literature review that examines pain management options for lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS), a condition characterized by the narrowing of the spinal canal and intervertebral foramina. The review analyzes 24 original articles and identifies non-invasive and surgical techniques for managing pain. Non-invasive options include physical exercises, epidural corticosteroid injections, local anesthetic injection therapy, and oral analgesics. Surgical interventions involve decompressing the affected spinal region, with or without vertebral fusion surgery. Additional surgical techniques discussed in the review are the implantation of interspinous spacer devices and minimally invasive lumbar decompression (MILD). Comparative studies found that surgical intervention is more effective in managing pain associated with LSS when compared to non-surgical interventions

Abstract

Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) occurs due to the narrowing of the space within the vertebral canal and or intervertebral foramina. This results in the compression of the spinal cord and possibly the roots of the spinal nerves. Lower back pain and neurogenic claudication (NC) are major symptoms of spinal stenosis. This is a literature review that summarizes the important findings pertaining to pain management of spinal stenosis. Twenty-four original articles were assessed. Pain can be treated through non-invasive or surgical methods. Conservative techniques include physical exercises, epidural corticosteroid injection, local anesthetic injection therapy, and oral analgesics. Surgical intervention deals with the decompression of the affected spinal region, with or without vertebral fusion surgery. Other novel surgical techniques include implantation of specific equipment, known as interspinous spacer devices and minimally invasive lumbar decompression (MILD). Most studies offering a comparative analysis have demonstrated that surgical intervention is more efficacious than non-surgical interventions to manage pain associated with spinal stenosis.
