STENOSIS

Finding Relief for Stenosis

Stenosis is compression, crowding or pinching of the spinal cord and/or nerves in either the cervical, thoracic or lumbar spine due to narrowing of the spinal canal. This is typically associated with back pain, radiating pain or sciatica, weakness, and in severe cases, loss of bowel and or bladder control.

Stenosis Treatments

Treatment can be approached in both surgical and non-surgical manners. Non-surgical options include helping the patient to manage their pain and symptoms with physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, activity modification, epidural steroid injections, stretching, diet, exercise and weight loss. Surgical intervention would be explored depending upon the underlying pathology and cause of the stenosis. Options may include minimally invasive approaches.
