Numbness, weakness, cramping or general pain in the arms and legs are symptoms all too often related to spinal stenosis. This is the narrowing of one or more areas of the spine, frequently in the neck and/or lower back. The pain can range from mild to severe.
Fortunately, there are ways to reduce the pain non-surgically. From anti-inflammatory drugs to corticosteroid injections, relief is clearly possible. Nerve blocks have worked wonders on spinal stenosis patients. The physicians at Anesthesia Pain Care Consultants specialize in this important element in pain relief.
