What is Spinal Stenosis?

Spinal stenosis is a medical condition characterized by the narrowing of the spaces within the spine, which can put pressure on the nerves that travel through it. The condition primarily affects the lower back and neck.

The narrowing can be caused by various factors, including the natural aging process, osteoarthritis, herniated discs, or thickened ligaments. Symptoms of spinal stenosis can include pain, numbness, muscle weakness, and impaired balance, and these symptoms can worsen over time. In severe cases, it can cause significant disability and affect the quality of life.

My back hurt so much that if I drove over a bump I would cry out from the pain. Dr Bo fixed my back 2 1/2 years ago and gave me my life back. I would recommend anyone who has back issues to see Dr Bo. He cares about his patients like know other Dr I’ve ever been to.

I read a bunch of great reviews before I went in. I didn’t know what to expect and was anxious before I went in but after speaking to the dr, I feel great about doing my back fusion. The dr. answered every questions and instead of doing a 2 steps, he will do a 1 step which is less invasive

Spinal Stenosis FAQs

Answers to Common Questions. Click to Learn More

Spinal stenosis is often caused by age-related degenerative changes, spinal injuries, or genetic predisposition. It can also be influenced by certain medical conditions or lifestyle factors that affect the spine.

Symptoms of spinal stenosis may include pain or cramping in the legs or arms, numbness or tingling sensations, muscle weakness, and difficulty with walking or maintaining balance. The specific symptoms experienced can vary depending on the severity of the condition.

While it may not be possible to prevent spinal stenosis entirely, certain measures can help reduce the risk or slow down its progression. These may include regular exercise, a balanced diet, maintaining a healthy weight, and avoiding activities that put excessive stress on the spine.

Diagnosis of spinal stenosis typically involves a combination of medical history review, physical examination, and imaging tests to measure the narrowing of the spinal canal. These assessments help determine the presence and severity of spinal stenosis, guide treatment decisions, and monitor response to treatment.

Treatment for spinal stenosis aims to relieve pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, manage pain, and improve mobility. Non-surgical options include physical therapy, medication, and epidural steroid injections. Surgical options, when necessary, may involve procedures like decompressive laminectomy and spinal fusion to stabilize the spine and alleviate pain.

While spinal stenosis cannot be completely cured, appropriate treatment and lifestyle modifications can help manage symptoms, improve mobility, and enhance quality of life. It is essential to work with your healthcare provider to develop a comprehensive plan that includes proper therapy, medication, andsurgical intervention as necessary.
