My MRI Shows Stenosis, What Can I Do?

Treating Spinal Stenosis for Pain Relief
with Non Surgical Spinal Decompression
What causes that stenosis? Usually, a disrupted disc, inflammation, and arthritis all combine to clog the neural foramen.

This, by the way, is called foraminal stenosis vs. central stenosis. You see the spinal cord extends from the brain down. Off to the sides out holes in the spine (neural foramen) come nerve roots that branch into smaller and smaller nerves that go all over the body.

By doing Spinal Decompression we open up those disc spaces and pull disc material back into place. This keeps disc spaces and the holes for the nerves open. Much like a flat tire, that disc will flatten and bulge outward. This automatically reduces the size of the space the nerve has to travel out of. When we pull the disc back in place it will open up those holes slightly. Also by pulling the disc back in place we mobilize the spine as well; this helps to let inflammation dissipate.

Doing the drx decompression we can help take away severe lower back pain, and keep it away. Call today to find out if you are a possible candidate for this treatment.
