Preparing for a spine doctor consultation helps you communicate with your care provider and helps your provider determine the most effective treatment plan. You can prepare for a consultation by gathering essential information, creating a list of important questions, understanding your medical history, and asking a supportive individual to accompany you to your appointment.
Spinal stenosis is when the spaces within the spinal column narrow, leading to spinal nerve and cord compression. While stenosis can develop anywhere within the spinal column, it is most common in the lumbar spine in the lower back and the cervical spine in the neck.
While some patients may not display noticeable symptoms with spinal stenosis, others often experience pain, discomfort and limited mobility. Muscle weakness, numbness and tingling are also common symptoms of spinal stenosis. Learn how to treat spinal stenosis with nine innovative treatments.
