Spinal stenosis refers to an abnormal narrowing of the spinal column, causing pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerves as they leave the spine. Symptoms of a spinal stenosis may include numbness and tingling of the extremities, neck, or shoulders, weakness, and impaired motor control or balance.
Laser therapy can help alleviate all of the symptoms associated with a spinal stenosis. By increasing blood flow to the area laser therapy can reduce the inflammation on the spinal column, removing the pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. In the absence of the pressure, all the symptoms of a spinal stenosis will disappear allowing you to return to your regular activities free of discomfort.
