Understanding Spinal Stenosis: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatments

At Long Island Brain & Spine, we understand the discomfort that comes with spinal stenosis. This condition, characterized by the narrowing of the spinal canal, can significantly affect your daily life.

Causes of Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis typically affects the lumbar spine (lumbar stenosis) or the neck (cervical stenosis), compressing the spinal cord and nerve roots. Common causes include:

  • Aging, leading to a narrowed spinal canal
  • Bone spurs on the spine
  • Spinal tumors affecting the spinal column
  • Arthritis
  • Fractures due to injury or other medical conditions

Symptoms of Spinal Stenosis

The spinal stenosis pain and other symptoms vary depending on whether the lumbar spine or cervical spine is affected. For most people, the symptoms will progress slowly over a long period of time. Walking, standing, or expanding the lumbar area of the spine will often worsen them. The symptoms include:

  • Neck or back pain
  • Leg pain or cramping
  • Numbness or tingling in hands, arms, feet, or legs
  • Problems with balance and coordination
  • Issues with bowel function, bladder function, or sexual function

Treatment Options for Spinal Stenosis

Our team of skilled professionals at Long Island Brain & Spine is ready to provide you with a personalized spinal stenosis treatment plan. We offer a range of both non-surgical and surgical treatment options. Treatments include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Medication for managing spinal stenosis pain
  • Spinal stenosis surgery options such as decompression surgery or laminectomy
  • Spinal fusion (for severe cases)
  • Steroid injections for immediate pain relief

Don't let the pain of spinal stenosis hold you back. Our spine center is ready to help you manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life. Whether your treatment involves a CT scan for diagnosis, steroid injections for pain relief, or a surgical procedure for long-term resolution, we are here to help.
