Cervical Stenosis

As spinal degeneration occurs naturally with age, bone spurs may form and cause the spinal canal to become smaller. Bone spurs press on the spinal cord or nerve roots and cause symptoms similar to that of a herniated disc, except that the pressure is applied to the entire spinal cord. Cervical Stenosis can be a common form of neck pain, especially in older patients as pain can spread from the neck and back all the way down the arms and legs. It can also cause a loss of control and strength in the arms and legs. This is a more serious condition. The symptoms of spinal cord compression can become permanent. Symptomatic spinal cord compression usually requires surgical treatment. At Redwood Orthopaedic Surgery Associates in Santa Rosa, CA we specialize in diagnosing and treating cervical stenosis.
