Hey, it’s Dr. Troy here.
Today I want to talk about spinal stenosis. What it is and how we can help. If you’re suffering from spinal stenosis, you’ve been diagnosed with it, this type of therapy that I’m going to talk about today may be right up your alley for giving you the relief that you’re looking for and getting long-term lasting results to get your life back on track.
What Is Spinal Stenosis?
If you’ve been diagnosed with it, you know what it is. Basically, what happens is there’s a canal inside the vertebra where the spinal cord sits, that’s where these nerve roots come off. There’s a canal inside there and when that canal gets smaller we’re going to call that stenosis.
What Causes Spinal Stenosis?
Usually, it’s caused from external wear and tear to the spine. The body starts laying down more bone so the more bone that the body lays down the more it’s going to narrow that hole. If the spine is degenerating and re-laying more bone down you’re actually creating less room for the spinal cord to do its job, to send messages to your legs to your arms to your muscles to your extremities to your organs.
Therefore, you can have a lot of suffering, a lot of back pain, a lot of trouble walking. A lot of stenosis patients they feel better when they sit, they don’t want to stand. People with disc issues they tend to want to stand more.
How To Get Relief?
There’s a certain rehab protocol to get that spine moving and actually decompress to pull the disc the joints apart so that we get more room for the nerves to function, more room for the nerves to fire and then allow those muscles to start firing.
There’s a rehab protocol that actually will then help strengthen what you’ve just pulled apart and loosened up so that it can stay more stable and you can feel better.
If you’ve been diagnosed with spinal stenosis, you’ve tried other therapies, you tried shots and you’re looking at surgery, maybe even you’ve had surgery that failed, spinal decompression might be right for you.
