Cervical Stenosis


      This type of pain arises from a narrowed spinal canal in the neck. It may occur with or without disk damage, but usually involves bony enlargement that encroaches on the cervical spinal canal and presses on the spinal cord. This pressure produces the pain symptoms, which can be accompanied by numbness and weakness. Stenosis usually develops slowly over several years and is often aggravated only by certain activities or movement. Routine medications and pain treatments are frequently not effective. Activity modification can often effectively manage the early symptoms of spinal stenosis, but more advanced stenosis may require surgery.
