Spinal Stenosis: A Narrowing of the Spine That Can Damage Nerves

Spinal stenosis is a condition in which spaces in the spine narrow, putting pressure on nerves. This condition can also be congenital – people born with a narrow spinal column may be more likely to develop spinal stenosis.

Spinal passageways may become obstructed by excess bone growth, a fractured or dislocated bone, or inflammation of soft tissue. Some people who have spinal stenosis may not notice any symptoms, or they may have a manageable level of pain, but this condition can also cause severe and radiating nerve pain, along with numbness, tingling, or weakness.

Center for Pain Management uses non-surgical techniques to treat the underlying causes of spinal stenosis and minimize its painful effects. If you’re experiencing chronic back pain, or any of the other symptoms associated with spinal stenosis, please contact us to schedule a consultation: (317) 706-7246.

Complications of Spinal Stenosis

This condition tends to become worse over time and can lead to:

  • Leg pain/cramping when walking or standing
  • Bladder or bowel dysfunction
  • Poor balance/coordination
  • Loss of sensation in the hands or feet
  • Paralysis (in extreme cases)

Early treatment may slow the progression of spinal stenosis.

Spinal Stenosis Treatment

Conservative treatments, such as steroid injections, pain-relieving medications, and physical therapy, may be effective in minimizing symptoms of spinal stenosis. Patients with severe spinal stenosis may need a spinal cord stimulator implant or radiofrequency ablation (RFA).

Help for Chronic Pain

Nerve pain caused by a narrowing of the spine may begin as mild irritation, but it can eventually progress to the point of being debilitating. If you need help with back pain or nerve pain, please contact Center for Pain Management.
