Treatment Options for Spinal Stenosis

Treatment Options for Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is a common source of back discomfort for many older Americans, and it can become debilitating with time and without treatment. A study published by the National Library of Medicine estimates that as many as five out of 1,000 Americans over the age of 50 are affected by this condition. Help is available when you visit Dr. Craig Callewart and his staff at his office in Dallas, Rockwall, or Forney, TX, for spinal stenosis treatments.

What Is Spinal Stenosis?

In a case of spinal stenosis, the spaces between the backbone column (also known as the spinal canal) are smaller than normal. This puts a strain on the nerves in the spinal cord, which leads to pain. This condition is most likely caused by osteoarthritis, which is a joint condition that is common in older patients. It can also be caused by an injury to the back or bone disease. The discomfort of spinal stenosis is usually centered in the lower back. Spinal stenosis pain can also radiate down the legs and cause problems with incontinence or bowel movements in severe cases.

Treatment Options

After a diagnosis of spinal stenosis, which usually requires an X-ray and imaging scans, your Dallas, Rockwall, and Forney, TX, doctor can treat this condition in the following ways:

  • Therapeutic exercises with a professional.
  • Chiropractic adjustments.
  • Anti-inflammatory medications or steroid injections for pain management.
  • Surgery to widen the space in between the bones in the back to relieve pressure on the spinal cord.

Preventing and Managing Spinal Stenosis Symptoms

Though spinal stenosis is a back condition that progresses with age, it can be prevented and managed. Keep these routine care tips in mind:

  • Do exercises at home and move around more.
  • Observe proper lifting techniques (using your knees instead of your back).
  • Watch your posture.
  • Take steps to lose weight, as carrying extra pounds can put more of a strain on the back.
  • Place ice packs on the back to calm swelling.
  • Take hot baths regularly.
  • Schedule massage appointments
  • Talk to your doctor about nutritional supplements (like glucosamine) for joint support that might help.
