Long-term, Effective Lumbar and Cervical Stenosis Pain Relief
I have had chronic neck and back issues for as long as I can remember. So far, this has been the only place that has relieved me of my pain and who showed me things to do at home to help myself. I am so happy that I chose to have my PT done by Therapydia Nola. Jonathan gives you the utmost attention during your session and his method of treatment is very easy to follow and the results are very positive. The atmosphere in the facility is very pleasant also.
I am currently being treated for a degenerative back problem at Therapydia by Jonathan Burke. This is the first PT facility & Therapist I would actually “Refer” to! Feels like a “Gym” & Great Hands on Treatment! Professional, Caring, Friendly & Helpful!
My therapy has greatly improved and enhanced my mobility and reduced back pain. It has been better than any medicine I have ever taken. I will recommend to all my friends and anyone who will listen. Thanks so much see you next time !!!
Lumbar and Cervical Stenosis Pain Relief
Spinal stenosis occurs during the narrowing of bone channel where your spinal nerves and cords are located. Although some people are born with spinal stenosis, most develop it as part of a natural degeneration of the spine or through the development of bony growths from osteoarthritis.
The spinal canal typically has ample room for the spinal cord and nerve roots. You won’t necessarily feel the narrowing of the spinal column itself, but when it starts compressing your spinal nerves or spinal cord, feelings of numbness and radiating pain occur. Spinal stenosis has a gradual onset and you may notice minor weakness and changes in posture prior to feelings of numbness or pain.
The narrowing can occur in different parts of the spine, but the effects are similar regardless of location. The two most common spinal stenosis conditions are lumbar stenosis and cervical stenosis.
Signs & Symptoms
- Pain in the rear or leg when sitting down
- Burning or tingling feeling down the leg
- Weakness, or problems with moving your leg or foot
- Contact pain in the buttock
Lumbar stenosis refers to lower back region while cervical stenosis refers to the neck region. Low back or neck pain are common symptoms of spinal stenosis. For lumbar stenosis, sciatica is another common symptom. Sciatica causes radiating pain/numbness from low back to butt and down the leg which makes it painful to engage in physical activities such as walking or biking. Cervical stenosis also causes feelings of numbness, but can also cause paralysis if the spinal cord is compressed too much.
Common symptoms are:
- Manual, hands-on physical therapy techniques can improve the mobility of stiff joints in your hip, lumbar spine upper back and neck.
- Posture correction can help you relieve pressure from the nerves while you walk, stand and sit.
- Custom exercise programs will help you strengthen muscles and improve flexibility across your spine.
Physical therapy can help you effectively manage your spinal stenosis and studies have shown that it is equally effective as having surgery. Our physical therapists can help you build strength and tolerance and decrease any pain you may feeling.
