Spinal Stenosis

What is spinal Stenosis?

Spinal stenosis is the abnormal narrowing of the spinal canal. The normal space intended for the spinal cord and spinal nerves is decreased. This may occur at any region of the spine. Spinal stenosis may be caused by overgrowth of the bone, herniated disc, thickened soft tissue, spinal injuries, and tumors. Symptoms related to spinal stenosis are pain at the region, numbness, weakness, cramping, and pain in the arms or legs. Spinal stenosis can mimic other spinal conditions. Spinal stenosis may become a serious condition, it is important if you suspect spinal stenosis to make an appointment for an exam and proper diagnostic imaging. Chiropractic is a safe and effective treatment for most causes of spinal stenosis at any region of the spine.

Multidisciplinary Approach

At Axe Chiropractic we take a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of knee pain. A complete examination will be performed to verify the cause of the pain. Proper diagnostic imaging may be ordered to rule out other factors. The first level of treatment will be a customized plan of Chiropractic adjustments, specific exercises and stretches. Chiropractic adjustments usually resolve the issue but if the expected results from the adjustments are not accomplished a referral to our medical doctors may be necessary to assist in the treatment. Axe Chiropractic is one of the few chiropractic offices in DFW that works hand and hand with medical doctors to properly treat and manage spinal conditions and injuries.
