Your Solution for Post-Laminectomy Syndrome Relief

Are you experiencing persistent pain following spinal surgery? Does discomfort in your back or legs hinder your daily activities despite undergoing laminectomy? You may be suffering from post-laminectomy syndrome (PLS), but fear not – at Holistiq Spine & Orthopaedic Clinic, we specialize in comprehensive management strategies tailored to alleviate your symptoms and restore your quality of life.

Understanding Post-Laminectomy Syndrome

Post-laminectomy syndrome, also known as failed back surgery syndrome, is a complex condition characterized by persistent pain following spinal surgery. Despite the initial intent to relieve symptoms, some patients continue to experience discomfort, which may be localized to the surgical site or radiate to other areas of the body. This persistent pain can significantly impact physical function, emotional well-being, and overall quality of life.

Comprehensive Evaluation

Our approach to post-laminectomy syndrome begins with a comprehensive evaluation to understand the underlying causes of your ongoing pain. Our experienced team will conduct a thorough review of your medical history, perform a detailed physical examination, and may recommend diagnostic tests such as imaging studies or nerve conduction tests to identify any structural abnormalities or nerve damage contributing to your symptoms.

Personalized Treatment Approach

Once the underlying factors contributing to your post-laminectomy syndrome have been identified, we develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to address your specific needs and goals. Our multidisciplinary approach may include a combination of the following strategies:

  • Medications: We may prescribe medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), muscle relaxants, neuropathic agents, or opioids to help manage pain and improve your overall comfort level.
  • Physical Therapy: Our skilled physical therapists will work with you to improve strength, flexibility, and mobility in the affected areas through targeted exercises, manual therapy techniques, and modalities such as heat or cold therapy. Physical therapy can help reduce pain, restore function, and prevent further complications.
  • Interventional Procedures: Depending on your individual circumstances, we may recommend minimally invasive procedures such as epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, or nerve blocks to target specific sources of pain and provide targeted relief.
  • Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS): For patients with severe or refractory pain, spinal cord stimulation may be an effective option. This innovative therapy involves the implantation of a small device that delivers electrical pulses to the spinal cord, disrupting pain signals and providing significant relief.
  • Health Coach: Chronic pain can take a toll on your emotional well-being, leading to stress, anxiety, and depression. Our Health Coach team includes counselors who can provide support, education, and coping strategies to help you manage the psychological impact of post-laminectomy syndrome.
