FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

In your spine, there is a hole in which your cord runs. If for some reason this hole gets narrowed it causes stenosis. This issue causes great pain because it pinches the spinal cord. The spinal cord is filled with nerves that send all types of senses to the brain. If the problem continues on long enough, larger problems can occur such as major pain and becoming paralyzed. Spinal Stenosis has been around for a long time but in the recent years has become more prevalent.
The major cause of stenosis isn’t really known. Like a lot of medical conditions, there isn’t a clear pathway that will lead you down the road of stenosis. However, there are a few causes that have been identified. The major one being genetics. Stenosis seems to be somewhat hereditary. Along with that, age seems to be a major factor. It seems that the long term stress of body wear and tear causes stenosis. A last factor seems to be other conditions that cause swelling such as arthritis. That additional stress on the body seems to cause other issues such as stenosis. The major factor in most stenosis patients is that they worked a hard labor jobs and they worked long days. The damage done to the body from this type of work is outrageous. However, recent law changes and automation of certain jobs has helped reduce the impact of hard labor on peoples bodies.

The most common and major symptom of stenosis is pain. Other symptoms include numbness, weakness and trouble walking. Along with that, you will experience large amounts of pain if you sit or stand in the same position for too long. These are just the basic symptoms. Other people see it manifest in weakness, fatigue and muscle pain. This is because the blood flow is restricted as well. The major symptoms that doctors will see is the narrowing of the spinal canal. There are a few big tests that have to be done to see this. Doctors will often want to do an MRI. So they may prescribe you pain killers to help you through the pain through out the process. This is because pain care is the most important part of the entire process.

Spinal stenosis treatment can vary widely. From the location on the spine to the extent of the stenosis, every single case is different. Here at Spine and Wellness centers we use a few different ways to treat it. The major one being surgery. However, our doctors like to start with the least invasive course of action. Regenerative medicine is a common less invastve treatment. It is the process of building tissue to help regenerate the tissue missing in your spine. There are a few other treatments that Spine and Wellness centers uses. These are MILD treatment, Neurostimulation, Electromyography, Celiac Plexus block, and Epidural Steroid injetion just to name a few. Our experienced doctors can help choose the right procedure for your case. They can get you on the road to a painless life. Our doctors are experienced in pain care and all other treatments for this disease.

The recovery for stenosis really depends on the severity of the case. If surgery is needed then recovery can be long. Back surgery is the worst of all surgeries. This is because there really isn’t any movement that can be done without affecting the back. Along with that, the back has tons of sensory places in order for your body to work correctly. Nerves take the longest to heal. The recovery can be long and overwhelming. However if you have great spinal stenosis doctors that develops a great stenosis treatment program for you, you will be on the road to recovery quickly.

ABOUT SPINAL STENOSIS

Back pain is some of the worst pain that anyone can experience. However, it is all too common because your back is the part of the body that takes the most stress. Even if you don’t have a strenuous job, your back takes the weight of your entire body and head. This can cause an all too common illness called stenosis. Spinal stenosis is painful and can be debilitating to your entire life. Consider getting treatment in Florida at the Spine and Wellness Center. They can help you get back on the road to a healthier lifestyle. If you are in immense amounts of pain they can help you with pain treatment and fixing your stenosis. As well as long term spinal care. If you are suffering from immense back pain consider that it might be stenosis and consider these facts about this debilitating disease.

Stenosis has been around for a long time because heavy labor is nothing new to the world. But what is new to the world relatively is concrete and lights. Back in the day, peoples day was done when the sun went down because there really wasn’t a good way to light the work area. However, now days, large lighting systems are available and widely used. This means that the day can get longer and longer. Standing on concrete for work is more and more common. Standing on concrete is very hard on the back and body. This makes it more and more prevalent for stenosis to happen. The longer days and the damage done from standing on the concrete is too much for the body to handle.

Spine and Wellness Centers of America can help you get on the road to a happier and healthier well being. They have the best doctors with the most advanced technology to ensure that you are taken care of and can live a happy and pain free life.

For some patients, non-surgical pain relief techniques might not be the best treatment plan for them. When your spinal stenosis pain calls for surgery, our neurosurgeons may suggest minimally invasive and advanced surgical approaches such as the mild® treatment (minimally invasive lumbar decompression) or DRG Neurostimulation (dorsal root ganglion neurostimulation).

Patients suffering from spinal stenosis pain may be prescribed pain relief from in-office epidural steroid injections, soft tissue injections, or trigger point injections. Often anti-inflammatories are prescribed in conjunction with other acute pain treatments and the condition resolves. In other patients, acute pain is a precursor to a life of chronic pain, so it is important to determine the cause of pain and administer the correct pain relief procedure for lasting relief of chronic spinal stenosis pain.
