Aging can result in changes in your flexibility and physical we-being. One of the most common conditions that occurs as one ages is spinal stenosis. The term stenosis stems from a Greek word meaning “narrowing”, which is fitting because this is when your spinal cord and nerve roots are pinched, resulting in the narrowing of your spine.


Depending on the individual, the pain can vary in intensity and spread to other areas of your body. For example, your back, buttocks, legs, neck, shoulders, or arms can begin to experience pain, tingling or numbness. It is common to feel heaviness or an instant weakness in your limbs, as well as possible bowel or bladder problems. The pain is often bearable but can create further discomfort if not properly dealt with. There are various treatment options for pain relief but one of the main remedies is through laser treatments. The Laser TRX product applies low-level lasers to the surface of your body, with the purpose of stimulating cell functions while relieving pain.


Whether you have experienced this discomfort long-term or are beginning to see this problem building up, this is a great product choice for this purpose. Keep reading to learn about the symptoms and causes of spinal stenosis and how this treatment can further benefit you.


What are the Symptoms of Spinal Stenosis?

Spinal stenosis is most common in individuals that are over the age of 55 years as there are certain factors and occurrences that happen after aging of the body. Symptoms can include the following:


  • Lower back pain or pain in your buttocks

  • Pain or cramping in your legs when you are standing or walking, but relieved when you sit down

  • Bad posture when walking, relying on objects or other people to feel relief

  • Minimal pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness in your buttocks, legs, feet, arms, or hand

  • Tendencies to fall or lose strength instantaneously

  • Loss of bladder or bowel control: this indicates an emergent case, which would require immediate attention


These are some of the symptoms that can indicate that you have spinal stenosis. Each individual factor or multiple grouped together can be cause to look into. If you experience any of these discomforts, you can seek out professional advice for treatment options.


What are the Causes of Spinal Stenosis?

The symptoms of spinal stenosis and the condition itself can be stemmed from the degeneration of spinal joints, discs, and overgrowth of soft tissues, especially ligaments. This results in a change in the size of the spinal canal and nerve space, which ultimately creates issues for your spin. Certain conditions and factors will narrow the spinal canal:


  • Disk degeneration

  • Thickening of your ligaments

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Herniated or bulging discs

  • Bony growths

  • Facet joint wearing or overgrowth

  • Scar tissue

  • Bone slippage

  • Spinal tumors

  • Trauma to the spine

  • Fractures

  • Inherited abnormal spinal canal narrowing

  • Cancer

  • Compression factors

  • And other conditions


This is an overarching list that includes some of the causes, but some of them can also be found within other physical health conditions.


How is Spinal Stenosis Diagnosed?


Your doctor will go through an in-depth consultation that includes asking you about your past history and conditions, as well as symptoms that you believe lead to this. After that examination, x-rays or advanced imaging process may be done to further confirm your symptoms and diagnosis.


How can Spinal Stenosis be Treated?

As mentioned before, the severity of the stenosis depends on the person. Based on the advanced imaging results, the doctor will determine whether you have severe or mild symptoms. Mild to moderate symptoms can be treated with consistent exercise, physical therapy, and pain medications. If it is more severe, there may be shots prescribed to decrease inflammation.

For most cases, the conservative route is taken first to manage your pain to avoid factors such as allocating large amounts of money towards unnecessary surgeries or treatments that are unhelpful.
