[고도일의 통증정복]Pain relief with non-surgical spine treatment

Improving treatment prognosis with neuroplasty, balloon dilatation, intervertebral foramen widening, and ligament strengthening injection

◇ Director of Ko Do-il Hospital

Spinal stenosis narrows the spinal canal, a central nerve pathway that runs from the cerebrospinal cord to the body through the spine.

Soft tissues such as spinal bones, ligaments, and muscles are located around the spinal canal. Spinal stenosis is a degenerative disease of the spine that gets worse over time, but recently it has been spreading to those in their 30s and 40s. Also, with the prolonged Corona 19, more and more people use smartphones or computers for a long time, and as it becomes a habit to always look at smartphones with their heads bent, their necks have Fold them in a straight line and their center is also. bent, making it difficult for anyone, young or old, to feel safe anymore.

Spinal stenosis is difficult to detect with an X-ray and can be confirmed with neurological examinations such as MRI or electromyography.

◇ Non-surgical treatment with quick recovery that can improve symptoms without general anesthesia is in the spotlight

◇ Non-surgical spine treatment

Spinal stenosis is a problem with spinal nerves and the symptoms are severe, so patients think they need surgery. However, in actual medical practice, 90% of cases can be treated with non-surgical therapy without surgery.

Godoil Hospital diagnoses and treats the exact cause of pain based on a detailed examination, including foramen dilatation, epidural endoscopy, high frequency nuclear decompression, and injection therapy that strengthens ligaments.

Most procedures do not require incisions or general anesthesia and can be easily performed on an outpatient basis. In addition, exercise therapy, orthodontic therapy, and zero-gravity decompression therapy can help prevent and prevent recurrence. Because there is almost no damage to the surrounding tissues, it is possible to return to daily life after being discharged on the same day or go to hospital for 1-2 days, so the recovery period is short .

◇ When all treatments don’t work, expect pain relief with an intractable pain clinic

Intractable pain can be suspected if severe pain persists despite various treatments or if severe pain persists even after the cause of the pain has been eliminated by treatment such as surgery or medication. Because it is an unfamiliar disease, even if the pain is felt, the disease is often left undiagnosed. If the intractable pain continues, depression, insomnia and the patient’s emotional damage can accompany it, so it is important to treat it along with the pain.

◇ Increase the prognosis of treatment with ligament strengthening injection, pain, correction, and exercise manual treatment

In addition to neuroplasty, balloon dilatation, and intervertebral foramen, at Kodoil Hospital, a hospital specializing in non-surgical nerve rehabilitation and spinal pain, a ‘ligament strengthening injection’ to strengthen soft tissues weakened by bone diseases back, Various non-surgical treatments such as ‘pain/correction/exercise manual therapy’, which holds the spinal joint in its proper position, is implemented. Prevention of spinal diseases is crucial, but once they start, it is important to treat them promptly and prevent recurrence. This is why we implement more basic and long-term treatment by quickly identifying the cause of pain, correcting lifestyle habits, and preventing recurrence by strengthening exercise education.

“The causes of pain vary from patient to patient, but the fact that they experience great inconvenience in their daily life is the same,” said Koh Do-il, head of the hospital. We will continue to strive to provide a more fundamental and long-term treatment by implementing a customized non-surgical spine treatment that comprehensively considers the patient’s condition, symptoms and lifestyle, away from the standard treatment,” he said.
