MILD is an acronym – it stands for Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression. It is an effective treatment for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis. Spinal stenosis is defined as “narrowing of the spinal canal.” Causes of spinal stenosis are often age-related changes including a bulging or collapsed disc, increase in the size of your bones and joints, formation of bone spurs and hardening or thickening of the ligaments that help support your spine.
Nerves can become pinched and irritated, causing symptoms including back or neck pain, pain that radiates down your leg, arm or leg weakness, a weakening of the foot called foot drop, and muscle cramping or numbness that appears in your back, neck, arms, legs, buttocks or shoulders.
