spinal stenosis treatment BuckheadIf you’ve been diagnosed with spinal stenosis, either cervical or lumbar, you may be wondering just what that means in terms of spine health. According to spine-health.com, spinal stenosis is the “abnormal narrowing of the bone channel occupied by the spinal nerves or the spinal cord”. This narrowing can develop over time; occuring through out different areas of the spine. Though some people are born with the congenital form of spinal stenosis, it is more often experienced throughout the deleterious stage of life. Symptoms of spinal stenosis include radiating pain, numbness and weakness in the extremities. Where these symptoms are similar for both lumbar and cervical stenosis there are differences between the two that are important to note.

Lumbar spinal stenosis occurs in the lower back where cervical refers to the narrowing that occurs in the neck region. Often producing the same symptoms experienced by sciatica, lumbar stenosis often restricts blood flow to the legs, often causing leg pain during walking, or claudification. Though it most often is found at the L4-L5 or L3-L4 area of the spine, lumbar stenosis can actually occur anywhere in the spine.

When the narrowing of the spinal channel is found in the neck, it is referred to as cervical stenosis. Here it produces the possibility of compression of the spinal cord. This compression can lead to serious health issues that include the risk of paralysis. Intensive treatment is often needed when cervical spinal stenosis has been discovered.

I had been yo-yo dieting for several years after having kids, trying to lose the extra weight I had gained when pregnant. I tried just about every diet out there and failed at each one of them because they weren't sustainable. I was introduced to the Ketogenic diet in June of 2018 and thats when my weight loss journey truly began. I give credit to Innovative Health & Wellness by keeping me accountable in my weight loss journey with weekly weigh ins, support from the entire team and educated coaching. I'm loving my new lifestyle and finally feel comfortable in my own skin!

“Love this place! Stefania and Valerie at the front desk are so sweet:) They always have smiles on their faces, and are so helpful! I came here at the recommendation of a friend after being rear ended in a wreck, and having awful neck pain. I have to admit I was a little nervous at first because I am a very private person, and it is difficult for me to have people in my personal space, but the whole staff made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Orlando is so kind and gentle. He really puts your mind at ease, and just makes you feel better!!! I don’t know how they do it, but no matter what kind of day I’ve had at work, I always leave this place smiling:) Thanks for taking such great care of me!!!”*

“I have been going to Innovative for almost 7 months for weight loss and it has been an awesome experience! I have lost 60 pounds and definitely could not have done it without the support and encouragement of the staff! I go there every week for weigh-ins and blood pressure checks, and they have become like family to me. They go through my highs and lows with me, and keep me on track. It has been a life-changing experience, and I would highly recommend Innovative if you are ready to lose weight and lead a healthier life!”*
