Spinal stenosis is a serious condition that involves a narrowing of the spinal canal. This can cause a multitude of health problems because the nerves that control sensations of pain, parasympathetic organ function, and sympathetic organ function are housed in the spinal canal. When there is pressure being put on the nerves and they aren’t being properly protected, many health problems arise.
Symptoms of Spinal Stenosis
If you’re concerned about whether you or a loved one has spinal stenosis, here are some signs and symptoms that can be used to identify it:
Increased pain in the spine while standing
Symptoms that set in after varied distances of walking
Constant pain in the spine
Abscesses in the back
Many conditions will look a lot like spinal stenosis but might be something else, such as herniated discs or peripheral vascular disease, so talking your conditions over with your chiropractor and/or health care provider is a good idea.
What Causes Spinal Stenosis?
Spinal stenosis is caused by abnormalities in the spine as the spine ages. This can be either genetic or mechanical. The factors of spinal stenosis include enlarged ligaments, expanding infection, spinal cord tumors, developmental abnormalities, and vertebrae fractures.
The treatment for mild to moderate spinal stenosis is often a “sit and wait” strategy that doesn’t help the patient much. Instead, we provide non-invasive technique and technology to decrease the pressure being placed on the nerves and slow the spinal stenosis process.
