Spinal Stenosis Symptoms

Symptoms of spinal stenosis most usually appear in patients over the age of 50. The "wear and tear" on the spine through the years, along with thickening of the ligaments, often leads to the narrowing of the spinal canal--or spinal stenosis. Even though this deterioration process is ongoing in most people, many do not have any symptoms or discomfort from the stenosis.

The symptoms of spinal stenosis become apparent when inflammation of the nerve root occurs. Increased pressure on the involved disc levels may cause patients to experience a variety of symptoms. For instance, in lumbar spinal stenosis, pain, numbness, or weakness in the legs or buttocks may be present. Walking tends to increase the intensity of the symptoms.

Treatment Options for Spinal Stenosis Symptoms
If the location of the spinal stenosis is in the cervical spine, symptoms in the arms and shoulders may include numbness, pain, and weakness. Whether the location is lumbar or cervical spinal stenosis, the symptoms may come and go or become constant. In severe cases of spinal stenosis, the involvement may extend to bowel and bladder problems.

At The Bonati Institute, the treatment for spinal stenosis symptoms includes an initial thorough examination and evaluation of symptoms. The professional staff carefully explains every option for the treatment and management of spinal stenosis symptoms. If surgery is indicated, the surgeons at The Bonati Institute use the latest technology in endoscopic and arthroscopic laser surgery to repair the source of the stenosis. All procedures are done under a local anesthetic, so recovery time is quick, and no hospitalization is required. Many patients report immediate relief of spinal stenosis symptoms following surgery at The Bonati Institute.
