To explain a little, spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the openings in the spine through which exit the spinal cord to supply nerves to the body. Notably back pain is produced by such stenosis changes because the nerves exiting the spine are compressed. When this compression results in back pain and pain that shoots down the arms and legs, it’s time to contact Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. When you start hearing terms like sciatica, neuropathic pain, leg pain, and arm pain, it’s time to contact the Toronto chiropractic specialty care office, Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre.

What causes spinal stenosis? In those of us Toronto folks under the age of 45 to 50, it is usually due to disc herniation. In those over that age, it is due to spinal arthritis, thickened ligaments, disc herniation, disc bulges, facet (spinal joint) degenerative arthritis, disc thinning, and spurs growing from the vertebra (spinal bone) back into the nerve openings. Sometimes this array of changes is called spinal degenerative disease. Regardless the terminology we are all interested in how to control spinal stenosis and relieve the pain. What are treatment options?

Spinal manipulation as performed at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre has been shown to be first line care for back pain. (1) Specialized spinal manipulation consisting of flexion distraction and decompression spine manipulation as Cox Technic is shown to provide the following back pain relieving benefits to those of us suffering from spinal stenosis:

Toronto back pain patients seek pain relief first and foremost and later appreciate the restored motion that comes with it.

So visit your Toronto chiropractic clinic, Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre, to learn how this form of care can offer you relief from spine and extremity pain.

Your Toronto doctor may also offer you physical forms of care such as electrical stimulation to decrease inflammation and sedate irritated nerves. This is beneficial because spinal stenosis also causes inflammation of nerves as they exit the spine. Also, specific home exercises to attain and maintain the increased mobility may be suggested. You may want to consider some nutritional support Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre suggests to help with the disc degeneration.

This conservative chiropractic manipulation is first line care for spine and extremity pain. If your doctor feels it necessary, some interdisciplinary care with other practitioners may be recommended and, in some severe cases with progressive symptomatology and such, even surgery. However, conservative spinal manipulation like that offered at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is first line care. It is devoid of the invasive side effects of spine surgery.

So contact Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre for non-surgical back pain relief. Visit your Toronto chiropractic physician’s office for further leadership in relieving your back pain and neck pain and increase your overall wellness.
