About Spinal Stenosis
As a result of narrowing in the spinal cord, lumbar spinal stenosis can cause nerve and spinal cord impingement. Although spinal stenosis may not always develop with noticeable symptoms or side effects, it typically causes weakness of the muscles, tingling sensations, pain and discomfort, and/or numbness. There are two prevalent types of spinal stenosis (cervical and lumbar), and they are typically the result of shifting in the spine due to osteoarthritis. The ideal treatment plan for your specific case of spinal stenosis with be based upon the exact type and severity of your condition.

Spinal Stenosis Treatment
The exact form of treatment for your case of spinal stenosis will be dependent upon the severity and type of your condition. For the majority of patients, less invasive approaches will be initially recommended, which could include prescription-strength medications or physical therapy. Once the appropriate diagnostic imaging tests have been performed, a personalized treatment plan will be created to adhere to your specific needs. Your unique plan may include steroid injections or percutaneous disc decompression if less invasive methods do not provide the intended results. During a disc decompression procedure, a needle-like tool is used to help remove an area of the ligament from within the spinal column in order to make more room in the spinal canal.
