Top 10 Spinal Injuries

Spinal Stenosis

Or narrowing of the spinal canal, is typically the end result of progressive degenerative disk and facet joint disease resulting in compression of the nerve roots in the spinal canal. Spinal stenosis varies in degree depending upon the extent of disk and facet joint degeneration or spondylolisthesis.

While non-surgical treatments such as physical therapy or injection therapy may alleviate symptoms, if the stenosis becomes sufficiently severe the only means of increasing the size of the spinal canal and relieving nerve root compression is surgery.
