Cervical spinal canal stenosis is not as common as lumbar (lower back) spinal stenosis but it can have more serious symptoms such as paralysis and weakness that affects the entire body. Other symptoms of cervical spinal canal stenosis may include:

  • Stiffness and/or pain in the neck, shoulders and arms
  • Numbness and weakness in the hands or legs
  • Problems with balance, especially when walking
  • Crippling caused by spinal cord damage
  • Loss of bowel and/or bladder control

Aging is one of the main causes of cervical spinal canal stenosis as it causes changes in the shape and size of the spinal canal. Other common causes of cervical spinal canal stenosis include:

  • Spinal disc herniation
  • Thickening of the spinal ligaments
  • Bone spurs protruding into the spinal canal
  • Nowadays, sedentary lifestyle is also a cause.

Cervical spinal canal stenosis can be managed with non-invasive treatments and rarely requires surgery. Approximately 80% of all back pain is classified as “unspecific” causes. This leads to imprecise treatment that has little or no effect. However, an accurate diagnosis can offer lasting relief from cervical spinal canal stenosis pain.

Technologically Advanced Diagnostic Tools

C7Physio uses MRI and Xray tests that identify bone and tissue damage, Advanced tests that can quantify muscle function and identify weakened muscles. Based on these findings, we recommend isolation and precision movements that target these muscles for quick and lasting relief from cervical spinal canal stenosis pain.

Algorithm-Based Treatment Protocols

We offers unique treatment protocols that are derived from an algorithm which is based on our experience. The protocols are customized according to the needs of each patient and ensures that every patient with lumbar spinal canal stenosis receives treatment that is best suited to his/her needs. This evidence-based treatment system offers higher objectivity and increases the success rate of each cervical spinal canal stenosis treatment plan. We includes medical movements such as the McKenzie method and kinetic control movements to relieve the pressure on affected structures.

Safest Pain Treatment Technologies

Inflammation is a common component of cervical canal stenosis and so NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) may be prescribed. These medications are effective in reducing lumbar spinal stenosis pain but they pose significant cardiovascular and gastrointestinal risks. However, We utilizes Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) technology to reduce cervical spinal canal stenosis pain without any side effects. The FSM method uses a low-level electric current to promote repair and eliminate back pain.

Cervical spinal canal stenosis can cause severe and debilitating pain if it is left untreated and so it is important to visit a spine specialist for an accurate diagnosis.
