Also known as:
Cervical spinal stenosis, Lumbar spinal stenosis
Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal caused by excessive bone growth, thickening of tissue in the canal (such as ligaments or cartilage), herniated disk or all three. This narrowing can squeeze and irritate the spinal cord itself or the spinal nerve roots where they leave the spinal cord.
Providence Spine Services brings together a host of expert physicians, experienced nurses and highly skilled therapists to provide complete back and spine care to people who have back pain or who have suffered a back injury.
