Spinal stenosis happens when the space inside the backbone is too small. This can put pressure on the spinal cord and nerves that travel through the spine. Spinal stenosis occurs most often in the lower back and the neck.
Chiropractic is especially appropriate for spinal stenosis because it corrects and re-aligns dislocated and herniated discs, thus reducing pressure on the spinal cord and its joints and nerve networks. Apart from spinal manipulation, our team uses a variety of techniques to address stenosis symptoms.
Symptoms of Spinal Stenosis
- Pain in the back.
- Burning pain going into the buttocks and down into the legs (sciatica)
- Numbness, tingling, cramping, or weakness in the legs.
- Loss of sensation in the feet.
- A weakness in a foot that causes the foot to slap down when walking (“foot drop”)
Common Causes of Spinal Stenosis
- Bone overgrowth/arthritic spurs
- Bulging disks/herniated disk
- Thickened ligaments
- Spinal fractures and injuries
- Spinal cord cysts or tumors
- Congenital spinal stenosis
How We Help
Manual and gentle adjustments are commonly used to realign the vertebrae in your spine or joints that are out of place. This can happen for many reasons such as trauma, car accidents, slip and falls, or just regular daily activities.
We are proud to be the only clinic in Florida to have the Anti-Gravity Decompression Chair. While in an anti-gravity position, we can reduce the pressure on your disc and nerves and increase your mobility.
Physical therapists are movement experts. They help people improve or restore mobility and reduce their pain. Through hands-on care and patient education, our Physical Therapist will improve the quality of your life.
benefits of chiropractic
Patients can experience immediate and long-term relief from pain and discomfort with chiropractic care and by making small lifestyle changes.
An immediate decrease in pain through adjustment, spinal decompression, and physical therapy helps reduce inflammation and tension so the body has an opportunity to heal.
Enhance Quality of Life
Sudden, sporadic, or chronic back pain can keep us from living our best lives. The right treatment can get you back to your natural, healthy state.
Trigger Point Injection
Trigger point injections involve the precise insertion of medication into muscle knots, commonly found in areas like the neck, shoulders, arms, legs, and lower back, to alleviate pain, relax muscles, and improve mobility.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP harnesses healing platelets and growth factors from a patient's blood. When injected into specific areas, PRP stimulates tissue repair, reduces inflammation, and accelerates natural healing processes.
A regenerative medicine treatment protocol combining PRP and MSCs to enhance the potential for tissue healing, reducing inflammation, and promoting the regeneration of damaged and injured tissue.
Physical Therapy Treatment
Cold Laser Therapy
Low-intensity laser therapyaiding in the repair of annular disc tears.
Reduces muscle spasms and improves range of motion.
