Spinal Stenosis is a condition that involves the narrowing of the spaces within the spine, which can put pressure on the spinal cord and the nerves that branch out from it. The condition most commonly affects the lower back (lumbar spine) or the neck (cervical spine).
The narrowing of the spinal canal may occur due to a variety of factors, including age-related degenerative changes, such as herniated discs or osteoarthritis, as well as congenital defects or spinal injuries.
The symptoms of Spinal Stenosis may vary depending on the location and severity of the condition, but they often include:
- Back pain or neck pain
- Numbness, tingling, or weakness in the arms, legs, or other body parts
- Loss of balance or coordination
- Difficulty standing or walking, particularly for long periods of time
- Bowel or bladder dysfunction (in severe cases)
Diagnosis of Spinal Stenosis typically involves a physical exam, imaging tests such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRI scans, and nerve function tests to evaluate the extent of nerve damage.
Typical treatment options may include medications for pain and inflammation, chiropractic care, physical therapy, corticosteroid injections, and surgery in severe cases.
In some cases, Scoliosis and Spinal Stenosis may occur together, particularly in older adults. In these cases, treatment may involve a combination of approaches, including dynamic bracing (not rigid bracing) chiropractic care, and exercises.
Surgical intervention is sometimes necessary depending on many factors that your healthcare provider and help determine.
It is important to note that the use of the SpineCor dynamic bracing system for Scoliosis or any other condition should be determined by a qualified healthcare provider after a thorough evaluation of the individual’s specific condition and medical history.
Our Approach to Spinal Stenosis Treatment
The SpineCor Dynamic Bracing System is designed to treat Scoliosis, a condition where the spine curves to the side. The SpineCor Dynamic Bracing System is a non-invasive treatment approach that uses a flexible brace to address the curvature of the spine and improve posture and function.
In many cases, Scoliosis and Spinal Stenosis may occur together, particularly in older adults. In these cases, treatment may involve a combination of approaches, including dynamic bracing, chiropractic care, physical therapy, and medications to manage pain and inflammation.
A significant number of patients with Spinal Stenosis along with Scoliosis report mild to significant pain reduction when treated with the SpineCor Bracing System.
The primary goal of The SpineCor Dynamic Bracing System is to stop the progression of curvature and take the unwanted weight off the joints and structures of the spine which is causing the pain. The second goal is to stabilize and strengthen the spine and the third goal is to offer any correction if possible. Overall, improve quality of life.
