Stenosis

Stenosis, or narrowing, of the spine can cause symptoms related to spinal cord or nerve root compression. In the neck (cervical spine), cervical spinal stenosis can result in jumpy reflexes, difficulty buttoning a shirt, difficulty feeling the ground (due to numbness in the feet or hands), and clumsiness. In the low back (lumbar spine), lumbar spinal stenosis can lead to “walking leaning forward” as seen by “leaning on the grocery cart” and sitting down frequently to relieve the leg fatigue. Both are treatable by medications (anti-inflammatory medications) if mild, and if these don’t help a microscopic approach to relieve stenosis (see "Treatment & Testimonials") can be successful.
