What is Spinal stenosis?

Spinal stenosis is a medical condition in which the spinal canal, which is the passageway for the spinal cord and nerve roots, narrows and compresses the spinal cord and nerves.

This compression can cause pain, numbness, weakness, and other symptoms in the back, legs, and arms. Spinal stenosis can occur in any part of the spine, but it most commonly occurs in the lower back or neck.

It's important to speak to a specialist if you experience symptoms of spinal stenosis. Early diagnosis and treatment can help manage symptoms and prevent further damage.

“We can find the right treatment and get you back on your feet.”

"Spinal stenosis can be a very painful and debilitating condition, and it's important to seek medical attention if you are experiencing symptoms. While some cases of spinal stenosis can be managed with conservative treatments, such as physical therapy or medication, other cases may require specialist treatment, such as surgery. At Legent, we can help you find the right treatment that works for you.”
