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.

  • 5 star rating  I have been a proud client of Dr. Neil and the support team since 2016 and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. I tried other chiropracters previously and the experience at Ancaster Family Chiropractic is far superior than any other. The atmosphere is positive, friendly and professional. The set up is great and the organization/structure just makes sense. I love having a key fob...makes me feel important! They actually teach about chiropractic care for a greater understanding of same. The name is fitting as you feel like part of the family. Thanks for everything you do.

  • 5 star rating  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.

  • 5 star rating  I have been a patient with Dr Neil for about 2 years now and have definitely noticed an overall improvement in my well being and good health feeling since starting with the adjustments. I can also attribute a successful and remarkable quick recovery from 2 Total Knee Replacement surgeries to having good chiropractic care supporting good health healing! Dr. Neil is not only a caring friendly professional, he is also highly experienced and I wish to recommend him to anyone that needs a boost to daily health.

  • 5 star rating  I promised a haiku to show my appreciation, so here it is!

    Dr. Neil is great

    I have never felt better

    Go see him today

    In all honesty, Dr. Neil has been a huge help getting rid of my headaches and chronic sickness - issues that no medication in the world could help. He’s a class act and treats his clients like a true professional. If you’re dealing with any sort of health issues, I would recommend booking an appointment with him.

    Thank you Dr. Neil and your team (Deb & Sue are fantastic!) for your commitment to my health and your welcoming environment. I look forward to my appointments!
