Pinched Nerve

Relieve the Pain of Pinched Nerves from Spinal Stenosis

The effects of aging and gravity are not always kind to your spine, and one of the conditions that limits mobility and increases pain is spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis means that your spinal canal, which contains your spinal cord, is narrowing. Spinal stenosis has a variety of causes, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Disc spurs or herniations
  • Spinal misalignment
  • Bad posture and weak supporting muscles
  • Scar tissue from injury or previous surgery

Why You Are in Pain from Spinal Stenosis

The pain of spinal stenosis comes from the limited room in your spinal column creating pressure on the spinal cord and the nerves that run into and out of it. You can feel the effect of these pinched nerves in your back, arms and legs. If you have spinal stenosis near your neck, looking up or lifting above your head becomes painful. Standing and walking become painful with spinal stenosis of the lower back.


Some of the common symptoms of spinal stenosis that you should discuss with your chiropractor include:

  • Leg pain that worsens with walking
  • Leg pain in one or both legs, anywhere from buttocks to feet
  • Leg pain with numbness, burning and/or leg weakness
  • Weakness, numbness and pain from neck to legs
  • Muscle cramps and spasms

Sitting or lying in a fetal position can ease the pain by opening up your spinal canal, but who wants to live like that?

Visit Us in Stouffville for Spinal Decompression

Do not put off investigating the symptoms of spinal stenosis with your chiropractor. At Stouffville Health Centre, Dr. Turner performs a thorough assessment and history to rule out other causes for your pain and mobility problems, such as a herniated disc or sciatica. An accurate diagnosis is vital to the appropriate treatment.


Surgery for spinal stenosis can leave scar tissue that can worsen the condition. Anti-inflammatory medications work temporarily. Exercises must be the correct ones to avoid further spinal injury.

At our Stouffville chiropractic clinic, non-surgical spinal decompression is preferable because it is both non-invasive and focused on long-term rehabilitation. We invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Turner for an assessment and to discuss the possible positive outcomes of spinal decompression for spinal stenosis, including:

  • Enlarging the spinal canal
  • Lengthening the spine
  • Reducing spinal adhesions and scar tissue
  • Strengthening muscles that help stabilize the spine
