What is Spinal Stenosis?
Back pain and spinal injuries are common problems for many New York City residents, but they are not without help. NY Spine & Rehab Medicine provides its patients with the assistance they need to not only conquer their NY back pain, but also to resolve the issues that cause it. The premiere New York pain management center for thousands of people, we are committed to our patients' health and well-being.
One cause of back pain is spinal stenosis, a condition which may affect lower portions of the spine. In a healthy spinal column, nerve roots leave the spine via nerve root canals unrestricted. Spinal stenosis occurs when bone and soft tissues begin to grow over top of the vertebrae and end up covering the nerve root canals.
This causes constriction to the nerve roots and can lead to a number of painful and unpleasant symptoms as a result. The effects of spinal stenosis can include a tingling, burning sensation in the back and a numbing or pinching which reaches lower extremities. This can lead to excruciating lumbar pain which can become debilitating if left untreated.
At NY Spine & Rehab Medicine, we provide state-of-the-art equipment and an expert medical team to help patients overcome the pain and misery caused by spinal stenosis.
