Spinal Stenosis

 

Cervical Spinal Stenosis

 

Introduction

Degenerative alterations which affect the components in the cervical spine may cause the spine channel to turn into too small, a disorder referred to as Cervical Spinal Stenosis.

Causes

The most common causes of Cervical Spinal Stenosis are spinal asymmetry leading to disc bulge and herniation, and arthritis. As we grow older, the disc loses a number of its water content as well as much of its cushioning capability. The very first variation that appears in the disc tends to be holes inside the external ring of the disc, known as the annulus. Holes within the annulus can happen without having signs and symptoms. These types of holes recover through developing scar tissue formation.

Scar tissue is weak than usual tissues. Repetitive accidental injuries or falls may results in spinal asymmetry which causes much more deterioration of the disc. As a result, the area in between each vertebra will become smaller sized. The modification in the bones of spinal column leads to excessive stress to the articular cartilage material protecting the actual facet joints. With time, this irregular stress leads to deterioration and inflammation in the facet joints.

Bone spurs may possibly form across the spinal vertebrae and facet joints. These kinds of spurs may turn to push up against the spinal-cord causing the signs and symptoms of myelopathy or even the spurs may place stress where the nerve fibers exactly depart the spine channel leading to signs and symptoms of radiculopathy.

 

Signs and Symptoms

The signs and symptoms through Cervical Spinal Stenosis depend upon whether or not stress has effects on the actual spinal neural root base or maybe the vertebrae. The “pinched” nerve within the neck (radiculopathy) generally just leads to signs and symptoms within the neck as well as forearms, Stress around the vertebrae (myelopathy) can impact the legs and arms.

Radiculopathy is usually a situation that may take place through stress on the spine neural root and may possibly create sensations of tingling in the region provided by that neural root. You may experience heavy, sharpened and shooting ache across the direction of the neural nerves. Muscle tissue managed through the impacted nerve root also become weak.

Stress around the spinal-cord (myelopathy) is actually a more significant issue, since it can result in long-lasting spinal cord injury. Signs and symptoms through myelopathy deviate. Sensations of pins and needles or some weakness could affect both of your arms and the two thighs and leg. A reduction of muscle mass control within the hip and legs, known as spasticity, could cause problems in taking walks. “Position sense” could possibly be dropped within the legs or arms. Myelopathy may possibly interrupt the standard objective of the bowels and kidney.

Signs and Symptoms Cervical Spinal Stenosis

KKT Diagnosis

Discovering the main cause of a person’s neck issue starts with a detail history taking and physical assessment and 3D spine Xrays. Following the history taking, bodily assessment and 3D X rays, KKT professional may ask for certain other X rays and MRI of cervical spine to diagnose Cervical Spinal Stenosis.

KKT Treatment

KKT treatment offers the most sophisticated and highly effective non invasive medical technology for spinal restoration.

KKT treatment has been proven to reduce or eliminate pain by re-aligning spinal vertebras back to their normal symmetrical positions. As mis-alignment can cause pressure on the disc and bulging, herniated or slipped disc can impinge on a nerve causing Cervical Spinal Stenosis, realignment of spine can be used for the treatment of this nerve impingement and spinal cord compression. KKT treatment also stimulates biosynthesis of components responsible for disc health and this suggests why KKT is effective for treating disc diseases.

A well-rounded KKT treatment plan along with physiotherapy helps in soothing inflammation and pain, increasing your flexibility along with durability, as well as assisting you come back to optimum overall performance.

In short , to heal the spine, to reduce and eliminate pain at various levels and to give you back the quality of life you are missing the world’s most advanced healing machine is your own body and KKT treatment gives your body every chance to heal itself the way nature intends.
KKT Spinal care restores the body structural and neurological balance that has been affected by disturbances from the spine. This restoration reactivates the transmission of healing messages from the brain to the effected part of the body and vice versa. As a result your own body’s rhythms and natural healing processes can begin.

 

 

Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

 

Introduction

Lumbar Spinal Stenosis is an abnormal narrowing of the spinal canal that may occur in lumbar regions of the spine. It is most common type of spinal stenosis cervical and involves compression of the cauda equina.

Causes

Spinal asymmetry and arthritis is the most common cause of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis as they can result in the disc degeneration and loss of its water content. In children and young adults, discs have high water content and with growing age our discs begin to dry out and weaken. This problem causes loss of disc space height increasing pressure on facet joints and causing their degeneration. The covering cartilage of the joints also wears away resulting in bone rubbing on bone. To make up for the lost cartilage, the body responds by growing new bone in facet joints. Over time, this bone overgrowth-called spurs- narrows the space for the nerves to pass through and also the spinal canal. Another response to arthritis in the lumbar spine is that ligaments around the joints increase in size which also lessens space for the nerves. Once the space has become that small that it can irritate spinal nerves, painful symptoms result.

Signs and Symptoms

The typical signs and symptoms of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis includes increased pain in the legs with walking (pseudoclaudication), which can markedly reduce the activity level of the affected individual. Patients are typically comfortable at rest but cannot walk far without developing leg pain.

Additional symptoms in the legs may be fatigue, heaviness, weakness, a sensation of tingling, pricking, or numbness and leg cramps, as well as bowel and bladder symptoms. Symptoms are most commonly bilateral and symmetrical, but they may also be unilateral.

Discovering the main cause of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis starts with a detail history taking, physical assessment and 3D spine X rays. Following the history taking, bodily assessment and 3D X rays, KKT professional may ask for certain other X rays and MRI of cervical spine to identify the specific reason for your backache.
