Lumbar radiculopathy usually is a condition that occurs after you’ve had lower back pain for a while. By ignoring the initial symptoms that caused your discomfort, you risk developing this painful pinched nerve condition. Don’t hesitate to call on the spine doctors at the Spine & Rehab Group for a complete exam when back pain begins. And if you do need treatment for lumbar radiculopathy or surgery for lumbar radiculopathy, you’re in the best hands.
Lumbar radiculopathy describes a range of symptoms that occur due to compression or inflammation of a lumbar spinal nerve root exiting the spine at levels L1 to S4. The lower back is highly mobile and any changes in the structure can cause referred pain and other symptoms. Millions of people struggle with back pain and leg pain because of such spinal conditions.
The symptoms affect your quality of life by inhibiting your capacity to do daily tasks. Damage to any part of the lumbar spine can lead to sudden structural changes, causing compression of the spinal nerve roots. This leads to symptoms of lumbar radiculopathy.
Effective lumbar radiculopathy treatment depends on an early and correct diagnosis. Dr. Amr Hosny and the highly trained spine specialists at the Spine & Rehab Group in New York City and northern New Jersey use the latest technology to diagnose the point of your pain. Then they can offer effective treatment.

I came to the spine and rehab group for my back and leg pain. I was able to get an appointment the same day I called. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The doctors were very knowledgeable and took time to explain what was causing my pain and answer all my questions. I felt comfortable having my procedure done in their state of the art surgery center, where the staff made you feel at ease. They are very easy to reach and available to answer all your questions.Narendra G. ★★★★★

These days it’s hard to find a professional, yet extremely caring physicians office, particularly in the field of Pain Management.

I went to Dr. Hosny with lower back pain. I spend many hours sitting in a truck for my job. After an hour or so I would get pain in my back. Since I am a truck driver, pain killers were not an option for me. After a few sessions with Dr. Hosny, I am pain free. The staff at New Jersey Pain Care Center and are wonderful and caring people. I would recommend anyone go to Dr. Hosny if they want real results.Jeff ★★★★★
I had gone to Dr. Hosny with severe back pain after spinal surgery. It was debilitating pain that stopped me from being able to function normally. Dr. Hosny suggested that I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted in my back. It is the best thing I EVER did. I am so excited to be able to return to my normal life with no medication. My experience at the pain center was wonderful. The nurses were very understanding and kind.Glen ★★★★★
I have had back surgeries that provided me no relief from my pain. After a few treatments with Dr. Hosny, I have almost no discomfort. I have no need for my pain medication anymore, and have been able to go back to working out and enjoying activities with my family. I was pleasantly surprised at the treatment I received at New Jersey Pain Care Center. The staff is very nice, and treats you with respect. The facility is clean, bright and everything is brand new.Jen ★★★★★
I had been having pain in my neck for many years. I had been to other doctors and they all recommended that I have surgery. I was hesitant to get surgery, so I wanted one more opinion. I had a friend tell me about Dr. Hosny and New Jersey Pain Care Center. From the moment I met Dr. Hosny I knew he wasn’t your average doctor. He took the time to listen to my concerns about surgery, and he agreed. After my cervical radiofrequency, I have full range of motion back in my neck, and best of all, no pain.Sharon
