Backaches and sciatica image.
While most spinal stenosis occurs in the lower back, it can also occur in the cervical spine.
Spinal stenosis is a degenerative spinal condition that causes a narrowing of the spinal column, resulting in pressure on the spinal cord and compression of the nerve endings at the exact point where they leave the spinal canal.
The condition generally affects people 50 years of age and older, with most people consulting a health care provider regarding this condition for the first time around the age of 60.
The symptoms of lumbar (lower spine) spinal stenosis include pain, a tingling or numbing sensation that starts low in the back and radiates into the buttocks and legs, especially when you are engaged in an activity, such as walking. Symptoms generally subside when you are sitting or at rest.
Although 75% of all spinal stenosis occurs in the lumbar spine, it can also occur in the cervical spine (neck). This type is potentially far more serious because it may involve compression of the spinal cord itself that could result in overall weakness and eventually paralysis.
What causes spinal stenosis? The most common cause is an aging process that affects adults who have some type of uncorrected spinal stress. Other causes include spinal tumors, ingestion of too much fluoride, and trauma to the spine that may occur as the result of an accident.
Chiropractic adjustments may help improve spinal movement. Plus, some type of mechanical traction that increases the spacing between each vertebra has been shown to be helpful. This can help reduce the pressure on nearby nerves.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms described above, please call it to our attention the next time you come in for an adjustment. We are here to help!


A vertebral subluxation is the result of spinal bones with improper motion or position affecting nerve communications between your brain and your body.

sub = less than | luxation = dislocation
A vertebral subluxation is a stress response. Muscles go into spasm. Spinal bones lock up. And adjacent nerves are choked or chafed. This interferes with the control and regulation of your body. This garbles communications between the brain and parts of your body.

A dropped cell phone call is irritating. But dropped communications between your brain and your body can seriously impair your health!
Distorted nerve communications can be an underlying cause of many health problems beyond just headaches and back pain. For example. Interfere with nerve impulses going to or from your stomach: stomach problems.
Your nervous system controls every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. These nerve impulses travel through your spine. So having a spine free of vertebral subluxation is essential for optimal health.
Only a chiropractic examination can detect vertebral subluxations. And onlychiropractic adjustments can reduce their effect to your nervous system, naturally.
Find out if you have vertebral subluxations before they become more serious and more difficult to correct.

Could Chiropractic Help You?

Your nervous system controls and regulates every cell of your body. When your nervous system doesn’t work right, you don’t work right. And when you don’t work right, you’re sick! Simple as that.
Nerve compromise can result from postural distortions that are easily revealed with a few simple tests. We’ve simplified them so you can conduct them at home with a minimal amount of time, equipment and training. Naturally, they aren’t a substitute for a professional evaluation!
Simply study the pictures, follow the directions and conduct the tests. If the results indicate that you or a loved one is a good candidate for chiropractic care, contact Dr. Ted of Mountain West Chiropractic of Green Valley to arrange a thorough examination in our practice immediately. Neglected, spinal problems may worsen and make correction more difficult and expensive later.
