Treat your Spinal Stenosis with Holland Physical Therapy

Spinal Stenosis Treatment

People who have spinal stenosis often experience pain and discomfort in their neck or back. If the spinal stenosis is in the lower back, daily activities like walking or doing chores can become very difficult. Even sitting for a long time can be uncomfortable.

At Holland Physical Therapy, we are here to help with your spinal stenosis treatment plan. Let’s break down what might be causing your spinal stenosis and look at some of the treatment plans Holland Physical Therapy offers.

Understanding spinal stenosis and how Holland Physical Therapy can help

Spinal stenosis is a narrowing within the vertebrae of the spine which leads to pressure build up around the spinal cord and the nerves. Spinal stenosis often occurs in the neck or the lower back. The most common causes of spinal stenosis are osteoarthritis, spinal injury and aging, as follows:

  • Osteoarthritis ⸺ Osteoarthritis is deterioration of the cartilage between joints. In response to this damage, the body often attempts to support the damaged area by forming bone spurs, which can put painful pressure on the nerves.
  • Traumatic Spinal injury ⸺ Spinal injuries caused by an accident can lead to damage along the spinal cord. Painful nerve damage is common depending on the nature of the injury.
  • Aging ⸺ Wear and tear from aging eventually can cause the muscles and joints in the spine to break down. Patients often find that as they age,  their pain increases, while their mobility decreases.

If you have spinal stenosis caused by one of these factors, schedule an appointment to see our physical therapy team for treatment.
