Dr. Brett Stephens

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.
