Spinal Stenosis

Spinal Stenosis is the narrowing of the bone channel within your spine, which can put pressure on your spinal cord and the nerves that travel through your spine to the arms and legs. Some people may experience no signs or symptoms, while others may feel numbness, tingling, pain, muscle weakness, and issues with bladder and bowel function.  There are two types of spinal stenosis. The lower back can develop lumbar stenosis, while the neck develops cervical stenosis.  Treatments can include medications, physical therapy or possible surgery.
