Are you Suffering? Spinal Stenosis and What you need to Know….

What Is Spinal Stenosis?

Spinal stenosis is a condition in which the canal of the spine, where the nerve lives, becomes narrowed by bone spurs or arthritis, compressing or squeezing on the nerves. This is a common problem for senior citizens. When the nerve is irritated, there might be constant or intermittent numbness and or tingling. It can cause muscle cramps in the legs, but often if you bend forward or sit down the pain will subside because, in this position, you open up the canals and make more room for the nerve.

Spinal Stenosis occurs due to a physiological process called “Wolff’s law,” in which bone function changes cause bone-structure modification, leading to bony changes such as degenerative arthritis or bone spurs (osteophytes). The body puts more calcium or bone in joints that have abnormal stress. Some doctors might tell you arthritis in the back is just due to “normal old age.” Although it is common, it is not necessarily normal. If It were due to old age, wouldn’t every joint in your body have arthritis? If you do not have any degenerative changes or bone spurs, continue to take great care of your spine by getting regular spinal adjustments or keeping your spine in alignment, developing and maintaining strength and flexibility in your back, and being aware of and combating postural strains in order to prevent future problems such as stenosis.

 

Effective Treatment for Spinal Stenosis

Joint manipulation to create proper joint movement • Muscle balance treatments to improve postural strains • Natural anti-inflammatory such as Boswellia, turmeric, or hot packs for temporary relief • Electrical Stimulation • Surgery in some instances but only as a last resort
