Also known as abnormal narrowing of the spinal canal, this (most-often) degenerative condition can cause nerve impingement, radiating pain, weakness, numbness and tingling in the extremities. As there is no guaranteed-effective treatment for spinal stenosis, many people fall into despair at such a definitive diagnosis. However, we are here to tell you that you don't have to take this condition lying down! While the condition may be irreversible, you don't necessarily have to turn to drugs or surgery, each of which come with side effects and questionable levels of success. That being said, if you are slated for surgery, success in easing symptoms with chiropractic can be a good indicator of success post-surgery. Let's look at how chiropractic helps ease the symptoms of spinal stenosis.
Along with other holistic factors like exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle adjustments, chiropractic sticks to a natural approach to treating spinal stenosis. At our office in Milpitas, we offer modalities including spinal adjustment, massage therapy and advice on stretching, exercise and lifestyle to help you live better despite your condition. By changing the position of your spine and reestablishing good alignment, we are able to alleviate nerve impingement and improve nervous system function, both invaluable in your fight against spinal stenosis.
