Nerve Compression Can Cause Many Health Concerns

Nerve compression has the potential to cause a variety of debilitating health concerns, all of which impact your quality of life. So, if you suspect that you’re suffering from this serious ailment, it’s critical to receive immediate medical attention.

We recently consulted with a patient who was suffering from severe nerve compression, which resulted in extreme pain and weakness in his lower extremities. As a result, he was unable to enjoy his life or work the job he once loved.

After running a variety of tests to diagnose the problem, we scheduled him for anterior lumbar interbody fusion with posterior stabilization surgery. 

Shortly after the procedure, the patient began to feel better, soon noting that it was the first time in more than two years that he was able to wake up in the morning without the fear of pain.

Here’s what he had to say:

“I am very grateful to Dr. Sharma and his team for what they did in a relatively short time. I am sorely disappointed with my previous orthopedic spine surgeon and pain management doctors who let me live in pain and suffering indefinitely and offered no possible solution to improve my quality of life other than physical therapies and ESIs.”

There’s no better feeling than helping someone in pain regain control of their life!
