Make the #MOVE2mild to help your lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS) patients find lasting relief.
Epidural steroid injections (ESIs)–a procedure in which medication is injected in the lower spine to reduce swelling and pain–are typically offered to lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS) patients when more conservative methods like exercise and physical therapy have failed to provide relief. However, ESIs only treat the symptoms of LSS and do not address a major root cause of the problem.

The Mild Procedure addresses LSS by removing excess ligament tissue to restore space in the spinal canal.

Get your patients on the path to relief with Mild–the only treatment with a safety profile equivalent to an ESI, and the lasting relief expected from back surgery.*

New year, new treatment options! Make the #MOVE2mild this year to help your patients find lasting relief from lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS) pain. 

Our team is looking forward to another year of advancing care for the #LSS community with the Mild Procedure.
Data supports a different approach to lumbar spinal stenosis (#LSS) treatment algorithms that traditionally rely on serial epidural steroid injections (ESIs) to relieve chronic lower back and leg pain associated with neurogenic claudication. A recent study performed by Dr. @anjumbux and colleagues shows that performing the Mild Procedure immediately upon diagnosis of LSS or moving to Mild after the first ESI fails may help patients find lasting relief, and avoid "ESI Exhaustion."

Read on to learn Dr. Bux's insights on how to identify the signs of ESI Exhaustion and why to #MOVE2mild as a durable treatment option for LSS relief.

Is this a Mild Procedure candidate?

Case History: 68 year-old male with worsening pain in left lower back, buttock, and leg. A full course of physical therapy, chiropractic care, and epidural injections was completed with little improvement. The patient showed no response to medication. He reported back pain of a 6-7 out of 10 at rest, escalating to 9-10 out of 10 when standing or walking. The patient was unable to stand or walk for more than 5 minutes, but found relief from sitting or forward flexion. 

Answer: Yes! The featured patient was an excellent Mild candidate who achieved significant improvement in quality of life and mobility. By his two-week follow-up, his standing time increased to over 30 minutes and he achieved an impressive 8-point pain reduction down to 1 out of 10. He met his quality of life goals, including walking to the mailbox, gardening, and playing with his grandchildren.
