About Spinal Stenosis
Lumbar spinal stenosis is a condition that results in the narrowing of the spinal canal caused by spinal cord and nerve impingement. Though some patients with spinal stenosis may not experience any obvious symptoms, others may suffer from pain, tingling sensations, numbness, or muscle weakness, among additional concerns. The two main forms of the condition are lumbar stenosis and cervical stenosis, which often result from changes in the spine that occur from osteoarthritis. At Tricity Pain Associates, our certified physicians will tailor your treatment options to address the type of spinal stenosis that is occurring and cause of the condition. During your initial consultation, our team will evaluate your symptoms and determine the ideal approach to generating optimal outcomes for your health and comfort. To learn more about your treatment options for spinal stenosis, contact our Round Rock or South Austin, TX location.

"I have nothing but great things to say about Dr.Kim ! This is my first experience with a pain management doctor and I highly recommend Dr.Kim .Nerve and chronic pain can be debilitating and that's exactly what I was experiencing 6 months ago when I first came to Dr.Kim.Wasnt sure what to expect but after Dr.Kim quickly diagnosed me with stenosis and a bone spur causing the pain and inflammation he wasted no time in treating me with a series of injections, pain medications and physical therapy. While I am not quite back to 100% I am in a MUCH BETTER place than I was 6 months ago.Dr.Kim is truly sincere about your needs when it comes to injuries and pain and he is a GREAT listener!

Spinal Stenosis Treatment
While treatment for spinal stenosis is largely guided by the extent of pain or other symptoms, your care may include medication therapy or a more advanced approach. Our team of experts will perform diagnostic imaging and tests to determine the cause and type of spinal stenosis. We will then develop a treatment plan specifically targeting your unique needs, which may incorporate steroid injections, medication, physical therapy, or percutaneous disc decompression. During a disc decompression procedure, our specialists precisely remove an area of the ligament from the spinal column to create more space in the spinal canal, alleviate pressure, and diminish pain. Regardless of what your treatment needs might be, our skilled team will take the time to explain your options and help you decide on a solution to optimize your health and wellness.
If spinal stenosis is affecting your quality of life, we encourage you to schedule a visit with our certified physicians at Tricity Pain Associates in South Austin and Round Rock, TX.
