The Signs and Symptoms of Stenosis
There are two types of stenosis, and you can have both. Cervical stenosis impacts your neck, while lumbar stenosis affects your back. Stenosis – whether it impacts the cervical or lumbar regions of your spine – it occurs when space between your nerves becomes narrow. This narrowing puts pressure on the nerves that run down your spine to your arms and legs. In some cases, it is not noticeable. However, it can get worse. As it does, it can become a serious medical concern. There are several symptoms of stenosis, including:
- Numb Legs, Arms, or Feet
- Weak Muscles
- Neck Pain
- Tingling Sensations
- Difficulty Standing & Walking
What Causes Lumbar and Cervical Stenosis
Unfortunately for many of our patients, numerous factors can cause stenosis. It is important to figure out what caused the issue before we can devise a plan for treating it. Some of the most common causes of stenosis include herniated discs, arthritis, bone fragments from injuries, and bone spurs.
