What is Spinal Stenosis?
Spinal stenosis is a condition in which the spinal canal narrows, putting pressure on the nerves that travel through the spine. This can cause pain, numbness, and weakness in the back, legs, and arms.
Spinal stenosis can be caused by a variety of factors, including age-related changes in the spine, herniated discs, and bone spurs.
How can chiropractic care help?
Chiropractic care can be helpful in managing the symptoms of spinal stenosis. Chiropractors are trained to identify imbalances in the musculoskeletal system and address them through manual therapies, such as spinal adjustments, mobilization, and soft tissue therapies.
By improving spinal alignment and reducing pressure on the nerves, chiropractic care can help to alleviate pain and improve mobility in patients with spinal stenosis.
In addition to manual therapies, chiropractors may also recommend exercises and stretches to improve strength and flexibility in the affected area. Lifestyle changes, such as maintaining a healthy weight and engaging in low-impact exercise, may also be beneficial in managing the symptoms of spinal stenosis.
