What are the Best Natural Treatments for Stenosis

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Wed, Jan 22, 2014 @ 02:54 PM

Spinal stenosis can cause considerable discomfort, numbness or weakness. This happens when the areas that are narrowing put pressure on your spinal cord or nerve roots. If your pain is relatively minor or infrequent, your doctor will most likely recommend treating it with non-surgical methods, such as anti-inflammatory medication, restricted activity, physical therapy or over-the-counter pain relievers. Although these treatments can help, some can be risky. Prescription and over-the-counter medications can cause side effects or trigger adverse reactions. If you would rather avoid these potential complications, natural forms of treatment for stenosis are another option.

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Tue, Nov 26, 2013 @ 10:30 AM

Spinal surgery for stenosis is typically an elective procedure. Surgeons may recommend an invasive procedure if you have severe pain in your leg(s) and/or experience numbness and your life is drastically effected by symptoms. If you haven’t been able to move about well for a long period of time, spinal surgery may be suggested—but it is important to be aware that symptoms can return after surgery. In addition, nerve impairment symptoms, like numbness or awkwardness when walking, may not improve or may return after surgery. It’s crucial to get a second opinion from a back specialist prior to having non-emergency surgery.
