Spinal Stenosis is a narrowing of the open spaces within your spine. This narrowing can put pressure on your spinal cord and the nerves that travel through the spine. Spinal stenosis occurs most often in the neck and lower back. While some people have no signs or symptoms, spinal stenosis can cause pain, numbness, muscle weakness, and problems with bladder or bowel function. Spinal stenosis is most commonly caused by wear-and-tear changes in the spine related to aging.
Are you experiencing painful spinal compression fractures?
•Fractures typically occur after a fall or accident but sometimes there does not need to be an injury to cause a fracture if the bones are brittle as with osteoporosis or with a tumor in the spine. You may be at risk for osteoporosis (brittle bones) if you are – age over 50, female, thin body habitus, smoker or have used oral steroids for a long time.
•Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty are two similar nonsurgical procedures that are typically performed for acute painful spine fractures related to osteoporosis or more rarely, cancer of the spine. They may be indicated immediately if the pain is severe or if a patient is not getting the needed relief with conservative treatments.
