Spinal Stenosis Chicago Illinois | Spine Care Specialists 

Spine Care Specialists are now treating patients in Chicago Illinois and surrounding areas for Spinal Stenosis. Spinal Stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal. Spinal stenosis can be associated throughout the entire spinal column. This leads to back and leg pain that comes and goes with activities such as walking. Although stenosis can occur in all areas of the spine, it most commonly affects the lumbar (lower) spine. The team at Spine Care Specialists can help determine if Spinal Stenosis is the condition that you are suffering from.

Symptoms of Spinal Stenosis: 

  •  Lumbar spinal stenosis symptoms include weakness, heavy feeling in the lower extremities, cramping, or numbness.

 Do you feel that you need assistance while walking for a period of time due to any of the above mentioned symptoms?  

  • Cervical spinal stenosis symptoms include weakness in the hands/fingers, neck stiffness, or arm pain.  

Do you have difficulty doing simple tasks such as writing?  

Treatment Options for Spinal Stenosis:

Spine Care Specialists of Chicago Illinois has the opportunity to offer our patients a couple treatment options for spinal stenosis. The main goal of any such surgery is to remove the pressure on the nerve roots in the lumbar spinal canal. In the cervical spine, stenosis may sometimes require decompression from the front, back, or both front and back of the spine, depending on the severity of the stenosis. 

  • Spinal stenosis is a slow progressive back problem that in its early stages may respond to conservative care, such as pain medications and rest.
  • Your doctor may also recommend physical therapy and/or an epidural steroid injection (ESI). Over time, Spinal Stenosis may worsen, necessitating surgery.
