Pain Management Interventions in Lumbar Spinal Stenosis: A Literature Review – Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

The article discusses the management of pain associated with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS), which is characterized by the narrowing of the spinal canal and compression of the spinal cord and nerves. The review looks at 24 original articles and identifies non-invasive and surgical methods for treating LSS pain. Non-invasive techniques include physical exercises, epidural corticosteroid injections, local anesthetic injection therapy, and oral analgesics. Surgical intervention involves decompressing the affected spinal region, with or without vertebral fusion surgery. Other surgical techniques mentioned include the use of interspinous spacer devices and minimally invasive lumbar decompression. Comparative studies indicate that surgical intervention is generally more effective than non-surgical interventions in managing pain associated with spinal stenosis.

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.
