Spinal Stenosis

Neck and lower back pain are often caused by pressure on nerve roots within the spine. When the area reserved for the nerves within the spine narrows, it is called spinal stenosis. This can cause pressure or irritation on the spinal nerves. Spinal stenosis is caused by an injury, disease or degeneration that affects the vertebrae or discs. At Medici Medical Arts, we offer diagnosis and treatment for patients suffering from spinal stenosis pain at our clinics in the Atlanta area.

Spinal spondylosis, osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, bone spurs and herniated discs are all common causes of spinal stenosis. In addition, spinal stenosis can be a result of any types of growths that limit the space occupied by spinal nerves, like tumors and thickened ligaments. Spinal stenosis is most common in the cervical and lumbar regions of the spine, affecting the neck, arms, lower back and legs. X-rays and MRIs are used to help diagnose spinal stenosis and the underlying cause of the narrowing of the spinal nerve space.

Symptoms and Treatments for Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis may occur without any symptoms. If the nerves are impacted, pain, numbness and weakness in the affected muscles can occur. In the cervical spine, symptoms may be felt in the neck, shoulders and arms. In the lumbar spine, pain, numbness and weakness can affect the lower back, hips and legs. Symptoms may come and go with certain movements that put more pressure on that area of the spine. Changing positions or stretching could alleviate symptoms in some cases.

Treatment for spinal stenosis depends on what is causing the pressure on the nerves in the spine. Conservative treatments include injections, physical therapy, medication management and electrical stimulation. If an intrusion or injury is causing pressure on the nerves, surgery may be required to repair the spine or remove tumors or bone spurs.

If you have worsening pain in your back or neck that is impacting your quality of life, contact us at Medici Medical Arts today. We will help diagnose your spinal condition and find an appropriate treatment option to give you relief.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

Christina S.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
