Spinal Cord Injuries and Stenosis Treatment
Careful rehabilitation is crucial when your spinal cord becomes compressed or injured. You need to work closely with a trusted practitioner or team that will create a manageable and appropriate program.
Spinal stenosis (a narrowing of the spinal canal sometimes causing pressure on the spinal cord) can be caused by a range of factors, including:
- disc bulges, protusions and herniations
- facet joint hypertrophy which can increase the size of the joints of the spine
- spinal osteoarthritis
These are just some of the causes. It is important that you approach the condition with care in order to reduce the effects of symptoms and are able to remain active.
