This can be very painful and uncomfortable. It is very common for this discomfort to happen around the back of the neck or in the lower back, and it can even travel all the way down to the back of your leg. Symptoms of Spinal Stenosis may include numbness, muscle weakness, impaired bladder, leg and arm weakness, balance problems, and lower back pain while standing or walking. Spinal Stenosis starts happening as we start to get older. Other causes can be arthritis, hereditary, trauma, falling, or tumor of the spine.
Physical therapy can improve your spinal stenosis. There are many exercises that can help reduce the pain. Here at The PT Experience we provide a friendly and relaxing environment. We are also unique because we use special equipment as well as provide you with independent exercise programs.
If you’re having back pain or have any of these symptoms, we recommend that you contact either our Oceanside, New York or Smithtown, New York offices for an evaluation. When you meet with one of our professionals, we will be able to evaluate your symptoms and find out your goals in order to make sure we lead you in the right direction. Our main goal is to help you reduce the pain and restore function to make you feel at your best.
