Why Chiropractic Care for Spinal Stenosis Beats Surgery

Chiropractic Care for Spinal Stenosis is More Effective Than Surgery!

When it comes to back pain, there can be several reasons why you are hurting. One of the most common causes is spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis occurs when there is a narrowing of the spaces within your spine. As the narrowing increases, it puts pressure on the nerves moving through the spine.

Spinal stenosis can occur in the lower back and the neck. Some of the symptoms for spinal stenosis include:

  • Numbness or tingling in a foot or leg
  • Weakness in a hand, arm, foot, or leg
  • Problems with walking and balance
  • Neck and lower back pain
  • Pain or cramping in one or both legs when standing for a long period of time or when walking
  • In severe cases, bowel or bladder dysfunction (urinary urgency and incontinence)
