Do You Suffer from Pain Due to Spinal Stenosis?

Spinal stenosis, also known as spine narrowing, is when the spaces between your spine constrict and put pressure on your nerves. Spinal stenosis typically occurs in your neck and lower back. Even though you may not experience any symptoms, some of the most common include pain, muscle weakness, numbness, and impaired bladder and bowel movements.

Hector Pacheco, MD, Adult & Pediatric Spine Surgeon and a member of the medical staff at Temecula Valley Hospital, discusses how spinal stenosis is diagnosed and the latest treatment options available to reduce your pain.
