Stenosis is from the Greek word meaning “a narrowing.” Lumbar spinal stenosis results in low back pain and can radiate down the nerves into the buttocks, hips, legs, thighs, or feet. Cervical spinal stenosis results in neck pain and can radiate into the nerves of shoulders, arms, wrists, and hands.At Triangle Disc Care in Raleigh, NC the doctor can help with treatment for this painful condition.Call the office to book your appointment today.

Although it is true that some individuals congenitally have larger or smaller canals than others, the cause of the narrowing is usually a combination of three different degenerative factors present in varying degrees in different patients:

  1. When a disc herniates, the bulge takes up space.
  2. As the involved disc dries out and loses height (a process known as desiccation), it causes the vertebra to become closer together.
  3. As the stress on the joint accumulates and osteoarthritis begins to result, bone spurs form and ligaments hypertrophy.

These three factors in various combination and degrees of severity compromise the space in the channel, which can compress (pinch) the nerve. They may be referred to as degenerative disc disease, the most common cause of spinal stenosis. Spondylolisthesis and scar tissue formation as a result of prior surgical fusion are other factors that can contribute to spinal stenosis.

The doctors and staff at Triangle Disc Care specializes in Spinal Decompression Therapy in Raleigh to help reverse the changes of spinal stenosis. This therapy works as it gently stretches apart the spinal vertebra creating a vacuum within the discs to pull water, oxygen, and nutrients into the disc. This halts the degenerative process by rehydratingthe disc and bringing in the nutrients needed to heal any torn fibers. As the disc is rehydrated, its shock absorbing properties are improved and in many cases some of the lost height is restored as well, creating more space for the nerve. Contact us today.
