Symptoms of Spinal Stenosis
Spinal stenosis puts pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. The symptoms of spinal stenosis may be subtle, appearing slowly over time and gradually getting worse. Signs of spinal stenosis include:
- neck pain
- back pain
- shoulder pain
- arm pain
- numbness, weakness, cramping in arms or legs
- lack of coordination
- lack of balance when walking
- bowel or bladder incontinence
Treatments of Spinal Stenosis
Sometimes spinal stenosis can be controlled without surgery. The nonsurgical treatments include:
- medication to reduce swelling
- medication to relieve pain
- limit activity
- physical therapy
- back brace
If surgery is required for spinal stenosis, a laminectomy will be performed to ease the compression. During a laminectomy the surgeon removes part of the vertebrae and thickened tissue to relieve compression of the spinal cord and nerves.
