The word stenosis is derived from the Greek vocabulary and means “to choke”. If you have been diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis, this means that the nerves in a certain area of your back are being “choked” and the messages from the brain to the rest of your body are being blocked. Pain can result as a warning sign from the body that there is a problem occurring within.
Lumbar Spinal Stenosis vs. Cervical Spinal Stenosis
In lumbar stenosis, which occurs in 75% of stenosis cases, the spinal nerve roots in the lower back are compressed, or choked, and this can produce symptoms of sciatica — tingling, weakness or numbness that radiates from the low back and into the buttocks and legs – especially with activity. Spinal stenosis is related to degeneration in the spine and usually will become significant at the age of 60 or so. Treatment for lumbar spinal stenosis is very effective to help adults prevent having to limit activities and can alleviate leg pain and/or difficulty with walking.
Spinal stenosis pain in the neck (cervical spinal stenosis) can be far more dangerous by compressing the spinal cord. Spinal cord stenosis may lead to serious symptoms, including major body weakness or even paralysis. Many times people think the only option they have for cervical spinal stenosis is surgery. This is not true.
