Most people will experience back or neck pain at least once during their lifetime. Dr. Keller is specialty trained to treat spinal stenosis. AOG healthcare providers work together with you to provide one-on-one diagnosis and treatment options for all spinal conditions.
Spinal stenosis is a degenerative condition characterized by the narrowing of the spinal canal. This narrowing may cause nerve compression that can lead to uncomfortable symptoms, like tingling, numbness, and shooting pain. At AOG, we take a conservative approach to spinal stenosis treatment that focuses on relieving symptoms and improving mobility through non-surgical methods, including:
- Physical therapy to increase mobility and strengthen the muscles that support the spine.
- Prescription medications to provide relief from pain and inflammation.
- Steroid injections to reduce inflammation around compressed nerves.
Surgery is considered to be a last resort. However, certain patients with more disabling symptoms may not respond to conservative treatment methods. In these cases, Dr. Keller will carefully review the patient’s surgical options and address any questions they may have. We offer the latest advances in traditional and minimally invasive spinal stenosis procedures to achieve optimal results while posing as little risk to the patient as possible.
