EXAMINATION AND TREATMENT OF THE AGING SPINE: Implications for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

The incidence of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) increases with age and this condition is becoming more prevalent with the reported increase in life expectancy. This results in increased pain, decreased function and an overall decrease in quality of life for a large portion of the population. Unfortunately, LSS is not only common but also very expensive, costing an estimated $50-100 billion per year with 75% of this money coming from those that have become temporarily or permanently disabled. There are many medical treatments available for LSS however they are often expensive or have greater risk. Conservative management may be an alterative and it seems to be effective in some circumstance. This course will briefly review the patho-anatomy associated with LSS as well as different classification systems. Also, examination procedures will be covered as well as suggestions for differential diagnosis. Finally, diverse treatment options will be discussed including manual therapy, exercise as well as education and home carry over activities. Upon conclusion of the webinar participants will be able to identify those with LSS and have a broad array of treatment strategies.
