What Is Spinal Stenosis (Canal Stenosis Or Spinal Canal Stenosis)?
Spinal stenosis (Spinal Canal Stenosis) occurs when the spinal canal (housing of the spinal cord) or spinal foraminal (the opening between the spinal bone where the nerves exit) reduces in size. Spinal canal stenosis has various forms. There are three types, Central canal stenosis, lateral stenosis, and foraminal stenosis. Foraminal stenosis is by far the most common form of spinal stenosis. For the most part, spinal stenosis is a developmental disorder that takes years. Injuries, poor posture, and neglect of mild conditions are the leading causes of spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis treatment at our center focuses on the subtle changes that took years or decades to develop. Chiropractic Specialty Center® has top chiropractors and physiotherapists for assessing and treating spinal stenosis. Contact our office today to learn about our proven non-surgical spinal stenosis treatment.
The most common denominator in spinal stenosis is the degenerative cascade. Risk factors for spinal stenosis increase with degenerative changes in bones, joints, ligaments, spinal discs, and muscles degenerate. The majority of patients that suffer from this disorder may be asymptomatic. Symptoms often start when the stenotic spine is stressed, damaged, or irritated. Pain and symptoms associated with spinal stenosis are similar to sciatica. Pain and symptoms caused in patients with spinal stenosis result from compression of either nerve, spinal cord, or both. The key to recovery is early diagnosis and targeted systems of treatment that address the cause. That is, our chiropractors will perform tests to diagnose the cause accurately.
Cause & Effects Of Spinal Canal Shrinkage
As mentioned, Spinal Stenosis (Canal Shrinkage) is the gradual narrowing of the spinal canal and the vertebral foramina. Narrowing of the spinal canal results from disc degenerations, disc herniations/protrusions (slip disc AKA slipped disc), osteophytes (spinal bone spurs), and the thickening of ligamentum flavum or through a combination of one or more of these issues. Spinal Stenosis is a treatable non-surgically through our integrative spinal stenosis treatment that fixes and repairs the damage without surgery. We have helped thousands recover. Call one of our centers today for the best non-operative spinal stenosis treatment option.
Back pain, pain in the buttocks, or pain in the legs, along with weakness, is the most common symptom of a stenotic spine. The harshness of symptoms is dependent on the severity and degree of shrinkage in the spinal canal. Also, the degree of nerve compression within the foramina can significantly increase symptoms of spinal canal stenosis. However, there are other disorders the can complicate the degree of symptoms of canal stenosis. Spinal canal shrinkage is a serious health condition. Neglect or worsening can lead to life-altering disabilities. Minor spinal issues can become significantly painful in the presence of spinal canal stenosis or shrinkage.
Lumbar Stenosis (Shrinkage Of The Spinal Canal)
Lumbar stenosis is the most common type of spinal stenosis. It is only second to cervical stenosis. While lumbar spinal stenosis can occur at any segment, it is most common at the L4-L5 or the L5-S1 segments of the spine. Lumbar spinal stenosis treatments through our methods have helped thousands avoid surgery! Call us today to learn about our proven methods.
The lumbar stenosis mimics symptoms of vascular insufficiency. Patients with vascular insufficiencies may also have claudication. In vascular insufficiency, the pain lessens when sitting and worsen while walking. But, with lumbar spinal stenosis, pain is present in sitting and walking. However, lumbar stenosis patients complain of increased pain during sitting positions.
It is common for people diagnosed with lumbar spinal stenosis to experience relief of symptoms when seated. If the stenosis is severe, sitting will also be quite painful. Lumbar stenosis patients describe leg pain or fatigue with walking. Many will even describe increased tolerance or relief while leaning forward on a shopping cart, such as walking when flexed forward to walking. While lumbar spinal stenosis can occur at any segment, it is most common at the L4-L5 or the L5-S1 segments of the spine.
Can A Misaligned Vertebrae Cause Shrinkage Of The Spinal Canal Or The Intervertebral Foramina?
Misaligned vertebrae lead to decreased vertebral foramina’s size (opening between the spinal bones where the nerves exit). The degree of malfunction and pain is usually directly related to the severity of a misaligned vertebra. For this reason, minor misalignment can cause moderate to severe pain in individuals afflicted with spinal stenosis. Stenosis can occur in virtually every person. The severity of pain can vary from mild pain to debilitating back pain.
Commonly, bed rest, massage, physical therapy, and pain medications, including steroidal injections, have been prescribed. The effectiveness of these treatments has varied, often leaving a person with a loss of hope. Most live with the pain needlessly! The good news is our treatment will help you live a healthy, active life. We have the best spinal stenosis treatment program in Malaysia. Our clinical teams have produced amazing results. The vast majority of our patients notice significant improvements within a couple of weeks. Learn more when you contact us.
Can You Get Shrinkage In The Spinal Canal Of The Neck (Cervical) Or Intervertebral Foramina (Openings Between Neck Bones)?
Cervical stenosis (shrinkage of the spinal canal in the neck) is similar to lumbar stenosis but occurs in the neck. However, cervical stenosis can be more critical than lumbar stenosis. In cervical stenosis, the spinal cord can be compressed. Spinal cord compression in the neck can impact every cell and tissue from the neck all the way to your toes. As such, it’s critical nature. Neck pain, shoulder pain, pain in the shoulder blades are common symptoms. At times, most symptoms are similar to a thoracic outlet syndrome or even have carpal tunnel-like symptoms. Therefore, an accurate diagnosis by our experts is needed to identify the cause. Our clinical teams, advanced methods, and technology can provide you the non-surgical healing you need for an active life. Call us today. Our cervical spinal stenosis treatment can effectively eliminate your symptoms and provide the lasting relief you need.
Can A Spinal Stenosis Paralyze You?
Patients with cervical stenosis often complain of various symptoms, including weakness in arms, legs, and trunk muscles. It can even cause organ disorders. In severe cases, it can cause arrhythmia and lung insufficiencies. Both lumbar and cervical stenosis are leading causes of paralysis. Therefore, head the warning and get targeted care early to avoid life-altering changes that are too difficult to cope with. Another name for spinal cord compression is myelopathy. Conservative care, such as those rendered in our centers, can help you avoid the perils of invasive surgical interventions. The earlier you start our corrective spinal stenosis treatment program, the better the chances for lasting relief.
Upper & Mid Canal Shrinkage
Lumbar and cervical stenosis are relatively common occurrences in those that neglect minor spine disorders. The upper and mid-back portions of the spine can also become stenotic. However, thoracic stenosis is rare. Degenerative changes, repeated trauma, and neglect are often the primary reasons for stenosis in the thoracic region. The thoracic stenosis conditions result from degenerative or traumatic events. Compression fractures (degenerative fractures) are the leading causes of thoracic spinal stenosis. The most common cause of degenerative fractures is osteoporosis.
At Chiropractic Specialty Center®, There Is Hope.
The most common causes of spinal canal stenosis are extruded discs, fragment discs, and ligamentum flavum hypertrophy. Surgeons always recommend spine surgery. Bu,t you don’t need spine surgery to recover from symptoms of spinal canal stenosis. Spine surgery performed for spinal canal stenosis is often through spine fusion. Spine fusion has the highest rate of failure amongst the various forms of spine surgery. So, before you opt for neck surgery or back surgery (spine surgery), visit our center. We can provide you with a better and lasting relief without ever going through neck surgery or back surgery.
