Spinal Stenosis Treatment in York, PA
When the spinal column begins to narrow due to disc degeneration or other factors, this results in a condition known as spinal stenosis. Over time, spinal stenosis could put pressure on the nerves, causing a number of serious symptoms. At Chiropractic Medical Center, our healthcare professionals treat those experiencing spinal stenosis in order to alleviate their pain and improve their overall wellbeing.
Depending on the location, spinal stenosis can affect different parts of the body. For example, if spinal stenosis is present in the neck, this could impact the arms, back, and legs. If spinal stenosis occurs in the lower back, the symptoms could be limited to the legs.
The most common symptoms associated with spinal stenosis include:
- numbness; and
- muscle weakness.
In serious cases, spinal stenosis can also impact a patient’s bladder or bowel functions.
Physiotherapy may be recommended to help with spinal stenosis. Our specialist can guide you through a series of exercises designed to build up your strength, improve spine stability and balance, as well as help with flexibility. To ensure that you get the most out of your treatment, he or she can also develop an exercise plan that can be followed at home.
