What is spinal stenosis?
Spinal stenosis, also known as canal stenosis, describes the narrowing of a portion of the spinal canal due to a bulging disc, bone spur, or shifting vertebrae as a result of degeneration. The spinal canal houses the spinal cord and dozens of nerve roots. Not every case of spinal stenosis is symptomatic, but shooting pain, muscle weakness, and tingling sensations can occur if the narrowing compresses the spinal cord or a nerve.
How is spinal stenosis treated?
Physicians Rehabilitation utilizes non-surgical methods to address spinal stenosis symptoms and improve overall spine health. Depending on each patient’s specific symptoms and what area of their spine is affected, our specialists may recommend a combination of strategically timed physical therapy, chiropractic care, and minimally invasive nerve block procedures to eliminate pressure on the spinal cord or nerves and relieve pain. We may also suggest practical self-care measures to help patients manage their symptoms on a daily basis, such as gentle stretching and low-impact exercise.
