Stenosis is pressure being placed on a vertebral disc on a nerve root at where the nerve exits. This is called foramina stenosis or centrally, towards the spinal canal, called central canal stenosis, which usually results in pain in the area or pain radiating down the nerve pathway. If you are experiencing this condition, it has been developing over quite some time even if you have not had symptoms and in most cases, there is a degenerative joint disease which is a spinal condition in the form of arthritis. This progressive disease continues to worsen over time and is has been seen by Chiropractors for quite some time. Medication, pain pills, muscle relaxers only tend to hide your symptoms, unlike Chiropractic, but the cause of your symptoms the structural problems will remain.

Chiropractic Care and Stenosis

Chiropractic starts to correct the structural problems by moving the vertebra taking pressure off of the nerves. In many cases, Chiropractic adjusting can take the pressure off of the disc and help to alleviate your pain. In some cases the degeneration is so severe even chiropractic can’t help and surgical intervention may be necessary. However, before you consider that you should first see a chiropractor who has had experience with Stenosis cases. In our 42 years, we have seen thousands of patients who have Stenosis problems and we have been able to help using many techniques such as chiropractic, applied kinesiology, acupuncture, spinal decompression and, nutrition. This full-scale approach with an experienced Chiropractor is an option worth considering before you decide on Surgery.
