Xstop Procedure

///Xstop Procedure
Lumbar spinal stenosis primarily develops in people over the age of 50 and is the result of a degenerative condition as the result of general wear and tear. This condition can cause a great deal of pain in the lower back.
The Xstop procedure for the symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis is an effective way to treat this condition.  This production—Xstop Procedure for the Symptoms of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis video, offers insight about this relatively new surgical option for patients.
Lower back pain and leg pain from lumbar spinal stenosis occurs when the space between the vertebras is reduced. This reduction in space allows the bone or tissue to come into contact with the nerve, which causes the pain. Someone who suffers from this condition will often find relief when they bend over because it widens the space around the pinched nerve.  The Xstop procedure for the symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis uses a spacer that is safely and permanently put into place in the spine to help separate the bone/tissue from these nerves. This procedure provides pain relief and works with the natural anatomy of the spine to stay in place (no screws or hardware are used).
