Spinal Canal Stenosis
Spinal canal stenosis is one of the most common debilitating musculoskeletal conditions senior citizens face but can be seen in younger patients with a long history of low back pain. Often accompanied with degenerative disc disease (arthritis of the spine), it is a condition where the spinal cord becomes pinched or choked by a narrowing spinal canal. This leads to symptoms like low back pain and numbness, tingling and weakness in the legs especially with walking.
These cases are often chronic but with Chiropractic care can become quite manageable without having to resort to dangerous surgeries. Treatment consists of painless spinal decompression as well as spinal realignment and movement optimization using the Activator Methods technique. cold laser is also often utilized to increase blood flow and rehydrate arthritic discs.
