Stenosis can mimic the sensation you feel when hitting your funny bone. Except now, it’s constant tingling, numbing or pain. Stenosis strikes most often in your neck or lower back and can make you feel miserable. Our goal is to improve your health in any way possible. When you need us, our award-winning care team is here for you.
Stenosis happens when swelling or herniated discs crowd the already limited space within the spine. This puts pressure on the nerves that travel to your arms and legs. Pain can range from barely noticeable to excruciating. It's most common after age 50. Prompt treatment gives the greatest number of options. Delays can result in permanent nerve damage and may require surgery.
