Canal Stenosis

Canal Stenosis

Canal stenosis, also known as spinal stenosis, is the narrowing of the spinal column. Due to numerous factors like the growth of bone spurs or disc degeneration, pressure is placed on the spinal canal causing it to become smaller. The spinal canal protects the spinal column and as the canal becomes compressed, a variety of symptoms may arise.

Causes

There may be no main cause of this condition, but there are a few causes that can influence this condition

  • Genetics: Inherited defects can cause canal stenosis.
  • Age: The aging process can greatly contribute to the deterioration of discs or spinal osteoarthritis which can lead to canal stenosis.
  • Weight: Excess weight can create pressure and can affect the overall structure of the spine
  • Trauma: Injuries or traumatic accidents can disrupt the spine and through this the spinal canal might suffer.
  • Spine conditions: Existing conditions like osteoarthritis, herniated or bulging discs and bone spur may all be contributing factors

Symptoms

Canal stenosis can affect various parts of the spine and can differ with each patient. Some patients may even go without noticing the condition. Below are some of the main indicators of this condition.

  • Neck and back pain
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Weakness throughout the body
  • Localized pain

Treatments

Patients can be treated for canal stenosis with conservative therapies including injections, medications, physical therapy and various other methods. At OC Spine Center, we start every patient’s care plan with a more controlled form of treatment. If all previous treatments fall short, our board-certified spine specialists may suggest minimally invasive spine surgery. Our physicians continuously research and utilize the latest in surgical procedures to treat spine conditions.
