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.

  • I have been suffering with neck and back pain and lack of mobility since my early teens and I am now 27, but I have progressively had a harder time coping with it since I started working in Healthcare in 2019. It had gotten to the point where all I could think about was finding a different job throughout my shift because I wasn't sure how much longer I could handle it. I decided to give Chiropractic Medicine a try and I am so thankful I did! I have been going to Ancaster Family Chiropractic since July 2021 and I have experienced a significant improvement with reduced severity and frequency of pain, better range of motion in my neck and back, and I rarely have to take OTC pain medication which is something I was relying on daily beforehand. I am not even halfway through my treatment plan and I can't wait to continue experiencing improvement in my quality of life. Thank you, Dr. Neil, Sue and Deb!

  • 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.
