Minnesota Spinal Stenosis Lawyer

Symptoms of Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spine in one or more of the following areas:

  • space at the center of the spine
  • the canals where the nerves branch out from the spine
  • space between the vertebrae

The narrowing puts pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. The symptoms of spinal stenosis may be subtle, appearing slowly over time and gradually getting worse. Signs of spinal stenosis include:

  • neck pain
  • back pain
  • shoulder pain
  • arm pain
  • numbness, weakness, cramping in arms or legs
  • lack of coordination
  • lack of balance when walking
  • bowel or bladder incontinence

Treatments of Spinal Stenosis

Sometimes spinal stenosis can be controlled without surgery. The nonsurgical treatments include:

  • medication to reduce swelling
  • medication to relieve pain
  • limit activity
  • physical therapy
  • back brace

If surgery is required for spinal stenosis, a laminectomy will be performed to ease the narrowing. During a laminectomy the surgeon removes part of the vertebrae and thickened tissue to relieve compression of the spinal cord and nerves.
