Spinal Stenosis Treatment in Dallas-Fort Worth
Spinal stenosis is caused by a narrowing of the spinal canal. This places excessive pressure on the spinal cord and interior nerves that run to the arms and legs.
It can present in patients with zero symptoms, but others may experience acute or chronic pain, or tingling, numbness and/or weakness in their arms, hands and legs.
Causes of Spinal Stenosis
Wear-and-tear of the spine over time in conjunction with osteoarthritis is believed to be the main cause of Spinal Stenosis. But there are other potential causes that may be the reason for an onset of this disorder.
Spinal Stenosis Symptoms
- Problems balancing or walking
- Pain and difficulty when walking
- Pain or cramping in your legs
- Numbness, tingling, hot or cold feelings in the leg, foot, arm or hand.
Overlapping medical conditions can make it difficult to decipher what the root cause of the pain is. A pain management specialist will be able to determine if spinal stenosis is primary cause following examination and testing.
