Cervical Spinal Stenosis

Cervical spinal stenosis is a bone disease that involves the narrowing of the spinal canal in the upper part of the spine and neck where the nerve roots or spinal cord may be compromised.

Cervical spinal stenosis is the most common reason for chronic neck pain in elderly patients. Spinal cord compression occurs because of these narrowing spaces resulting in pain and discomfort.

Spinal stenosis occurs all over the spine, most commonly in the lower back region. However, it is more dangerous in the neck due to the occurrence of the spinal cord. In the neck, this is referred to as cervical spinal stenosis and in the low back as lumbar spinal stenosis. Thoracic spinal stenosis is much less common

Causes

The main cause of this disease is the wear and tear caused by arthritis. As the cartilage wears away, bone scours against bone. This can result in an overgrowth of bone (bone spurs) that enters the spinal cord. If left untreated, it may lead to degenerative disc disease.

Symptoms

Symptoms depend on the situation and pressure on the spinal cord that may affect the spinal cord and nerve roots, or both. The symptoms of cervical spinal stenosis may include the following:

  • Neck pain.
  • Pain or weakness.
  • Numbness in different parts of the body.
  • Burning or pins and needles like sensations.
  • Hand clumsiness.
  • Low back pain.
  • Balance disturbances.
  • Sciatica.
  • Loss of bladder and bowel control.

In order to diagnose cervical spinal stenosis, our neuro-spine specialists use the following advanced methods:

  • X-ray
  • CT scan
  • MRI
