Spinal Stenosis: Symptoms, Causes, and Treatment

Spinal stenosis is a common condition affecting the spine. Spinal stenosis refers to the narrowing of the spinal canal, which puts pressure on the spinal cord and nerves.

Symptoms of Spinal Stenosis

This narrowing can lead to various symptoms such as back pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the arms or legs. Symptoms may worsen over time and can limit a person’s mobility and quality of life.

If you are experiencing these symptoms, book an appointment for an assessment at The Back Clinic. Your team consists of a doctor, physiotherapist, and biokineticist.

Causes of Spinal Stenosis

Several factors can contribute to the development of spinal stenosis, including age-related degeneration of the spine, herniated discs, spinal injuries, and conditions like osteoarthritis. Genetics and lifestyle factors may also play a role.

Treatment of Spinal Stenosis

A multi-faceted approach is often recommended to treat spinal stenosis. Conservative measures include physical therapy, pain medication, and exercises to strengthen the back and improve flexibility. In some cases, when conservative methods fail to provide relief, surgery may be considered.

The Back Clinic uses an innovative treatment option for spinal stenosis: The DBC program, a specialized exercise program that focuses on spinal stabilization and rehabilitation. The program utilizes specific exercises and equipment to target the underlying causes of spinal stenosis and improve spinal function.

The DBC program aims to relieve pain, increase mobility, and enhance overall spinal health. It is designed to address individual needs and is often tailored to the patient’s specific condition and symptoms. By strengthening the muscles supporting the spine and improving posture, the DBC program can provide long-term benefits and potentially reduce the need for surgery.
