Spinal Stenosis

You’ve probably heard of spinal stenosis before. It kind of sounds like scoliosis, but it’s not that. Stenosis is the abnormal narrowing of a body channel or passageway. When the narrowing happens around a tendon, like in your wrist, it can cause localized pain, inflammation and loss of normal movement in your hand. When it happens to your spinal cord or the nerves in your spine, it can cause numbness, tingling, weakness or pain because your brain loses normal connection to your body. This most often occurs in the lower back and neck.spinal stenosis

Spinal stenosis can be caused by wear-and-tear changes in the spine related to premature degeneration. Damage to a spinal disc, either a bulge or tear, can also compress the spinal cord or nerve roots. Since we know that subluxation causes the spine to degenerate 2-3 times faster than it would otherwise, it’s essential that we make sure there is normal movement and distribution of weight throughout the entire spine. This is one of the reasons we take x-rays and are concerned with the structure of your spine.

We are able to help those suffering with spinal stenosis, however, it’s much easier to keep someone from getting it in the first place. Our goal is to keep your spine and nerve system as healthy as possible, not just to help symptoms resolve. It always comes back to making continual, healthy lifestyle choices so that when stresses occur, we have the best chance to repair, heal and recover.

  • Dr. Neil and the staff Deb and Sue were very helpful with dealing with my issues. I went in with a lower back pain and has been healing pretty well. I have noticed the adjustments and home exercise not only helped with the pain but also helped with my digestion issues such as bloating. They were very accommodating whenever I needed a change in visits.Overall a great place to get yourself healed.

  • Their philosophy of health and well being is encouraging, optimistic and realistic. I appreciate the idea of leading a healthy lifestyle and preventing illness rather than simply treating the symptoms of ailments. Also, there are times unexpected benefits to chiropractic care. I wholeheartedly recommend Ancaster Family Chiropractic.

  • Dr. Neil and the admin staff have been a pleasure to deal with. I was referred to Ancaster Family chiro by a family member when I was dealing with severe back pain to the point that I couldn’t stand up straight. After the first adjustment I was shocked by the difference I could feel right away. As someone without a health benefit plan, Dr Neil was very accommodating in finding an affordable plan for me. I have been a client now for almost 6 months and can honestly say that I feel the biggest difference. Do yourself a favour and try these folks out, you’ll thank yourself later!

  • Dr Brown is efficient, empathetic and excellent at what he does, which is helping your body heal itself! The investment that he, and his supportive team of Deb and Sue, make towards your long term care plan is by far the most thorough and well thought out that I have ever experienced. I highly recommend their services for the whole family.
