The Clinically Proven Procedure for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis
When simple activities such as walking or standing become a burden, you may feel that pain has taken control of your life. The Vertiflex™ Procedure from Boston Scientific may help you take it back.
Your leg and back pain might be the result of a condition called lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS), which can develop from normal wear and tear on your spine as you age. LSS is common in adults over the age of 60. The Vertiflex Procedure is a safe and minimally invasive treatment for effective long-term relief from LSS pain.
What is Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS)?
Leg and back pain may be the result of a condition called lumbar spinal stenosis. LSS leads to the narrowing of the space in the lower (or lumbar) spine where nerves pass through. The narrowing of the space causes constriction on the nerves, which may result in pain and discomfort down the back and into the legs.
Pain is usually worsened when standing or walking, and leaning forward or sitting down provides relief. For most people, LSS develops gradually over time and is most common in adults over the age of 60.
