If you’re experiencing persistent back pain, it may be time to visit a spine doctor. You may be diagnosed with spinal stenosis if you have symptoms such as pain that radiate either down to the legs or through the shoulders and arms. The pain may be accompanied by numbness, weakness, and a “pins and needles” sensation.
When you watch this video, you’ll learn that spinal stenosis occurs when the spinal canal becomes narrower than usual and compresses the spinal nerves. This can cause painful symptoms, especially during standing and walking. The physical therapist featured in this video explains that spine surgery isn’t always necessary; first, patients may try conservative treatments like physical therapy.
Spinal stenosis is just one of the many spine problems that are treatable by the back pain specialists at Spine Institute of Nevada. Contact us at 702-239-3787 or visit us online to learn more about having minimally invasive surgery in the Las Vegas area.
