Let’s start with what Spinal Stenosis is. Essentially, this disorder is a type of degeneration, spinal stenosis, occurs when the spinal canal narrows at one or more locations along the spine. This narrowing can happen as a result of trauma to or deterioration of the spine’s bones, discs, or joints. Many degenerative conditions that develop as part of the natural aging process can also cause spinal stenosis, particularly osteoarthritis. With this condition, the cartilage between the vertebrae wears away, leaving the bones to rub against each other and form bone spurs that restrict space in the spinal canal. Other concerns that can produce spinal stenosis include tumors, ligament changes, and a herniated disc.
At our state-of-the-art practice, our Board Certified Spine Specialists can diagnose and treat spinal stenosis with a comprehensive selection of spine and pain management techniques. Your care, comfort, and results are our highest priorities.
Symptoms of spinal stenosis can vary depending on the location of the issue. Pain, cramping, and numbness may be felt in the back and legs, or the neck and arms. Sometimes spinal stenosis can cause imbalance or stability issues and in rare cases, bladder control may weaken. There are a wide range of concerns that can be caused by this condition. Back discomfort of any kind should be examined to determine if the problem is spinal stenosis or another issue.
Fortunately, spinal stenosis often can be treated using non-surgical methods such as rest, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), corticosteroid injections, orthotics, and physical therapy. Our Board Certified Spine Specialists are extensively trained in the most advanced spinal stenosis treatment options available, including many non-surgical treatment options.
In cases where non-surgical treatments have not resolved the symptoms of spinal stenosis, our Board Certified Orthopedic Spine Surgeons may discuss the option of a surgical procedure. Unlike in years past, most spinal procedures can now be performed using a minimally invasive approach that requires only a small incision and significantly expedites recovery time.
While there are several Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery options for spinal stenosis, the goal for any of these procedures is to remove the portions of the spinal ligaments, spinal bones, or other structures to alleviate pressure on the spinal nerves and spinal canal.
Our Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Spine Surgeons are among the most experienced anywhere in New Jersey and are experts in Minimally Invasive Spine Surgical procedures.
