Dynamic Health & Pain Management offers non-surgical treatments for various conditions like chronic pain, sports injuries, and accident-related injury. One of the specific regions treated at DHPM is the spine, particularly conditions like spinal stenosis.
Because some people do not feel any effects from spinal stenosis, it can be difficult to identify when you are suffering from this condition. Read below to learn more from our experts in Charlotte, North Carolina, about spinal stenosis, possible symptoms, and recovery at DHPM.
Spinal Stenosis Treatment at DHPM
What is Spinal Stenosis?
Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the bone channel occupied by the spinal nerves or the spinal cord. Though some people are born with the condition, most develop spinal stenosis as part of the degenerative effects of aging on the body.
Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (lower back)
Lumbar spinal stenosis is when the spinal nerve roots in the lower back become compressed. This pressure causes symptoms like:
- Weakness or numbness in the low back or legs
- Leg pain with walking
- Relief when sitting
Lumbar spinal stenosis often mimics symptoms of vascular insufficiency (improper functioning of vein valves).
Cervical Stenosis (neck)
When spinal stenosis pain is concentrated in the neck, it may be cervical spinal stenosis. Symptoms can be more severe with cervical stenosis, and can include:
- Pain in neck
- Extreme weakness
- Eventual paralysis
