Cervical Spinal Stenosis

Cervical Spinal Stenosis is a condition whereby the bony channel in the cervical spine, through which the spinal cord runs is narrowed. This could be due to a congenital anomaly (something you were born with), bony overgrowth, ligamentous thickening, disc herniation, slip in the vertebral bodies, or all of the aforementioned. There is also the possibility of compression by a tumor.

Symptoms of spinal stenosis could be weakness and/or numbness in arms and/or legs, difficulties with bowel and/or bladder, and/or difficulty with balance.
