Spinal Stenosis, a type of disc degeneration, is characterized by the narrowing of space within the spine. This type of narrowing puts pressure on the nerves of the spinal column, which can cause tingling and numbness down your arms or legs, depending on where the spinal stenosis is located. Spinal stenosis can be asymptomatic, but it can also cause extreme pain and weakness in others. People with osteoarthritis are more susceptible to spinal stenosis and the most severe cases may need surgical intervention. However, spinal decompression therapy has helped people with mild to moderate spinal stenosis. To find out if spinal decompression therapy is right for you, please call our Charlotte chiropractor today for a consultation.
