Spinal Stenosis

Stenosis, the Greek word for “choking”, can occur in two forms in the spine: lumbar and cervical.  In Lumbar Stenosis the spinal nerves as compressed or choked, creating symptoms resembling sciatica, such as tingling weakness or numbness that radiates into the legs and buttocks from the back.  In Cervical Stenosis the spinal cord itself is choked or compressed causing major overall weakness and even paralysis.
