Some spine conditions, such as a herniated disc, bone spur, or spinal stenosis, can lead to the painful compression of nearby spine nerves as they branch out of your spinal canal. This pain can radiate to your extremities and make the simplest of activities, like getting out of bed in the morning, feel impossible. When a soft tissue near the spinal cord or nerves of the back compresses a nerve, this can result in significant acute or chronic spine conditions.
If you are suffering from nerve compression in your spine, you may need a Laser Spine Surgery at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine Union, NJ.
What Happens During a Laser Spine Surgery at Oasis Orthopedic & Spine in Union, NJ?
