What is SPINAL STENOSIS?? ⠀
Does this sound familiar? Pain when standing up straight, needing a cart at the supermarket to make it through walking , or just a lot of pain from changing from a seated to upright position? ⠀
If it does, it’s a telltale sign of a common issue that affects a lot of people over the age of 55, and it’s called spinal stenosis. ⠀
Spinal Stenosis is when the areas where the spinal nerves travel start to narrow and become closed off. Think of canal or hole that is becoming smaller and smaller, until it’s so small it starts to put pressure on those nerves. ⠀
It’s commonly caused from herniated discs and age-related degenerative conditions, like osteoarthritis or bone spur growth, spurs that grow into the spinal canals and cause pinched nerves. ⠀
It can affect anywhere in the spine, and may cause significant neck, back, and sciatica pain. If bad enough it can also cause muscle weakness, numbness, and tingling into the legs or arms.⠀
So if this all sounds familiar, get it checked out and take a step forward towards getting relief.⠀
