Early Signs of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

Lumbar stenosis is a condition that impacts the lumbar or lower region of the back. Though many people suffer from the disease, not everyone is aware, as some symptoms mimic other conditions. This guide from Cornerstone Chiropractic seeks to clarify the early signs of this condition so you can get the care you need.

What Is Lumbar Spinal Stenosis?

Your spinal column is an area that houses your spinal cord. This area is called the spinal canal. Sometimes, the spinal canal can narrow due to injuries, dehydration, the discs, and chronic misalignment. This narrowing leads to direct pressure on the spinal nerves, leading to chronic pain.

What Are the Warning Signs of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis?

Not everyone feels symptoms in the beginning, but many do. The most common sign of lumbar spinal stenosis is back pain, specifically lumbar pain. You’re also likely to feel numbness, tingling, and chronic pain in the legs and feet.

Some people find they have little control over their bladders or bowels. And many feel more lumbar pain as they walk, specifically when walking at an incline or decline, such as with stairs and ramps.

How Can a Chiropractor Help with Spinal Stenosis?

Spinal manipulation and other chiropractic techniques effectively manage and treat spine conditions, including spinal stenosis. Each treatment method addresses the root cause of the issue, ensuring lasting relief. Although our chiropractors will develop a customized treatment plan, some standard techniques include adjustments, therapeutic exercise, and decompression therapy.
