Atlantic Spine Center Announces Updated Web Content on Spinal Stenosis New Treatments and a Better Approach to Spinal Stenosis Surgery

If the patient does nothing, he says, the walls will continue to move inward, eventually crushing the cord and leaving the affected section of the spine essentially useless—and the patient in enormous amounts of pain.

In the majority of cases, spinal stenosis is the result of the gradual degeneration that comes with aging: as we get older, Dr. Liu explains, the spine often starts to show signs of damage: ligaments can thicken and harden, osteophytes (or bone spurs) can develop, and arthritis can begin to damage the joints. At the same time, the discs (fluid-filled pockets that cushion each joint in the spine) also can deteriorate, resulting is disc bulges and herniations (tears in the outer disc membrane) that allow the gelatinous disc filling to protrude into the open spaces in the spine. These conditions, which are known as structural changes, a
