Spinal Stenosis

The Orthopaedic Institute of Central Jersey provides comprehensive treatment plans by the most highly skilled Orthopedic Spine Specialists.

A type of degeneration, spinal stenosis occurs when the spinal canal narrows at one or more locations along the spine. This narrowing can happen as a result of trauma to, or deterioration of, the spine’s bones, discs, or joints. Many degenerative conditions that develop as part of the natural aging process can also cause spinal stenosis, particularly osteoarthritis. In this disease, the cartilage between the vertebrae wears away, leaving the bones to rub against each other and form bone spurs that restrict space in the spinal canal. Other concerns that can produce spinal stenosis include tumors, ligament changes, and a herniated disc. At our state-of-the-art practice, our orthopaedic surgeons can diagnose and treat spinal stenosis with a comprehensive selection of spine and pain management techniques. Your care, comfort, and results are our highest priorities.

What are the symptoms of spinal stenosis?

Symptoms of spinal stenosis can vary depending on the location of the issue. Pain, cramping, and numbness may be felt in the back and the legs or the neck and the arms. Sometimes spinal stenosis can cause imbalance or stability issues and, in rare cases, bladder control may weaken. There is a wide range of concerns that can be caused by this condition, and back discomfort of any kind should be examined to determine if the problem is spinal stenosis or another issue.

Treatment Options

Fortunately, spinal stenosis often can be treated using non-surgical methods such as rest, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), corticosteroid injections, orthotics, and physical therapy. Our board certified orthopaedic surgeons are extensively trained in the most advanced spinal stenosis treatment options available, including minimally invasive surgical techniques. Used only as a last resort, surgery may be necessary in the event conservative approaches prove ineffective.
