Back pain isn't reserved for football players alone. The experts at Commonwealth Orthopaedics explain a common spinal issue and how to fix it...
Cervical stenosis refers to when the spinal cord or spinal nerves in the neck are compressed. If there is spinal cord dysfunction with this type of spinal stenosis, symptoms can include:
- Weakness and numbness in the shoulders, arms, hands, legs and feet
- Trouble with coordination and balance
Cervical spinal stenosis can often be managed with physical therapy, anti-inflammatory or analgesic medications, and activity modification. Patients with severe pain from cervical spinal stenosis may be recommended for surgery to help relieve pressure on the spinal cord.
