Do You Suffer from Spinal Stenosis?
Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spine in your neck or lower back that puts severe pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerves. Spinal stenosis can cause pain and weakness throughout your extremities, making life difficult.
At The Spine Center, we use minimally invasive surgical procedures to correct spinal stenosis so you can enjoy a more active life. We provide the answers you’ve been looking for.
What is Spinal Stenosis?
Spinal stenosis occurs when the spinal cord in the neck or the nerve roots in the lower back become compressed. This is due to a narrowing of the spine, and tends to occur most often in the later years of life—generally age 50 and beyond. When spinal stenosis becomes severe, surgery may be necessary to relieve compression and create additional space for the spinal cord and nerves.
We use minimally invasive surgical techniques so that correcting your spinal stenosis causes as little disruption as possible. To learn about your options, schedule your appointment today.
