Living with Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is a degenerative condition that occurs mostly in people aged 50 and above. The fact that it is a non-reversible condition causes many people diagnosed with the disease to lose hope. However, there are several methods of managing the condition that allow people to live healthier and happier lives. These methods only treat the symptoms of the condition and can do nothing to reverse it.

Medication for spinal stenosis is usually in the form of prescription drugs. Prescription drugs can be used to relieve pain, reduce muscle spasms and manage the effects of inflammation. Over the counter drugs are also available and perform the same functions as prescriptions drugs. However, over the counter drugs have been shown to have adverse side effects and should be avoided.

Proper management of spinal stenosis by medication should
be under the watchful eye of your physician.

If medication is not working for you, your doctor may prescribe injections. Epidural injections are administered in the spine at nerve roots. The injections contain steroids that alleviate inflammation in the area around the spine. Injections are especially beneficial for those experiencing pain in the legs and the lower back. Three injections are usually administered in the course of several weeks.

Apart from taking medication to relieve pain and reduce inflammation,
spinal stenosis patients should seek some form of physical therapy to help manage the symptoms of the condition.

Physical therapy will help to improve flexibility of the spinal column and increase the strength of the muscles, joints and ligaments in the back and abdomen. Although the condition cannot be reversed, improved flexibility and strength improve the quality of life of the patient.

Physical therapy includes active and inactive therapy. Inactive therapy does not involve any exertion on the patientís part. It involves the use of ice packs, ultrasound, massage, heat and electrical stimulation. This type of physical therapy is often used to prepare the patient for active therapy. It relaxes tight muscles and soothes pain. Active therapy involves therapeutic exercises that require the exertion of the patient. These exercises improve flexibility, increase strength and stabilize the spine.
