Winning Your Battle Against Spinal Stenosis Symptoms

If you are having trouble with back pain, neck pain, or odd symptoms affecting your arms or legs, you may be experiencing symptoms of spinal stenosis. This compression of spinal nerve tissue is quite common -- but the pain it causes can also be quite debilitating. If you are wondering what you can possibly do to relieve your spinal stenosis pain, you should know that chiropractic care and other natural, conservative solutions can help you feel better without surgery or drugs.Woman suffering spinal stenosis pain in Center Point

The word "stenosis" applies to the narrowing of a channel. In the case of spinal stenosis, the channel in question houses the spinal cord, with major nerve roots jutting out from it at intervals. While this channel offers essential protection, it can also cause problems. Any thickening of bone, tumor growth, calcium deposit or other development that narrows the space inside the spinal canal can squeeze or pinch spinal cord tissue and nerve roots, causing pain to be distributed throughout any part of the body served by that nerve tissue.

Among the segment of the population aged 50 or older, disc problems are a leading cause of spinal stenosis. The vertebral discs tend to lose height and bulge outward as they lose hydration, this age-related process can cause parts of the discs to press painfully against spinal nerve tissue. A chronic spinal misalignment can also bring spinal structures too close to the nerves for comfort. The resulting pain is usually worse when standing or walking as opposed to sitting; bending over often brings temporary relief.
