Spinal stenosis is a condition where the spinal canal becomes narrowed or “stenotic.” This occurs with increasing age and is a condition that impinges upon and limits the space where the spinal cord and nerves reside. This causes many symptoms including local pain, changes to balance, pain, numbness or weakness in the extremities, forward head posture, etc. If you feel most comfortable leaning forward against a shopping cart handle while at the grocery store, or you can’t hold your head straight up, there is a good chance that you have spinal stenosis to some degree. The medical treatments are typically injections and surgery, but the good news is conservative care with MLS laser has been extremely helpful in helping both lumbar and cervical spinal stenosis.
