The wear and tear of aging can be hard on the back, often leading to a condition called spinal stenosis. Also known as stenosis of the spine, spinal stenosis is a condition in which the open spaces in the spine become narrower and put pressure on the spinal cord. This narrowing can result in symptoms like weakness and numbness in the back, shoulders, and neck, and can even cause problems with bladder and bowel function.
In cases of spinal stenosis, surgical intervention is sometimes seen as an option. Unfortunately, surgery for spinal stenosis can fail, and this results in failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS). It is often more effective to employ spinal stenosis treatments that use holistic healing therapies such as spinal stenosis exercise, Physical Rehabilitation, and spinal decompression. These treatments can also apply to other painful back conditions, including disc herniation, disc stenosis, and degenerative discs.
