Spinal Stenosis

A narrowing of the spinal canal is called spinal stenosis. This narrowing can irritate the spinal cord itself or the nerve roots as they exit the spinal cord. Common causes of spinal stenosis are part of the aging process and is most common in patients over 50 years of age.

Spinal Stenosis can occur in the cervical (neck) or lumbar (lower) spine and it is characterized by pain, numbness, or weakness in the legs, feet, or buttocks.

Some of the factors that cause spinal stenosis are:

  • Degeneration of tissues
  • Excessive bone growth
  • Thickening of tissue in the canal (such as ligaments or cartilage)
  • Herniated disc

Spinal Stenosis Symptoms

Spinal stenosis can affect any part of your spine, and in some cases can be 100% asymptomatic. However, most patients that experience symptoms report the following:

  • Spinal Stiffness (especially in the morning)
  • Numbness (into the arms or legs)
  • Pain (usually in the low back or neck)
  • Sciatica (shooting pain down the leg)
  • Foot Drop (painful leg weakness that causes loss of control of your foot)
  • Difficulty Standing
  • Difficulty Walking
  • Loss of Bladder or Bowel Control (go to the emergency room immediately)

This wonderful place saved my life. Dr. Tapia and Young are excellent people. They’re very dedicated to their practice. Dr. Tapia is passioned of what she does. She likes to get to the bottom and roots of your health problems. I was suffering from dizziness, symptoms, balance problems and she was able to correct most of them including migraines. It’s amazing how she was able to find diagnosis that typical doctors overlook. The staff is amazing, Joselyn is great at customer service, she’s very efficient and dedicated to her job making sure that patients are well take care of. I fully recommend this place.

I came across Intouch Chiropractic through an ad on Facebook. In which I'm so glad I did! I have a really serious back Injury and severe scoliosis. So, I've been to my fair share of Chiropractors. This is honestly THE BEST chiropractic office I've ever experienced. Dr Tapia and Dr young are incredible! As well as their front desk assistant. They are all so friendly and welcoming. Dr Tapia has been treating me, and I've never had such caring chiropractor! Before she started treating me she carefully took the time to study all my x-rays, mri's etc. U like a ton of other chiropractors, they just don't seem to care as much. I will forever be a client. They truly make you feel like family! I highly recommend them to everyone!

I have been coming to Intouch for several weeks now. This is the best I have felt in over 10 years, I have suffered from lower back pain, neck pain, migraines and TMJ. Dr.Devin never ceases to amaze me with his vast knowledge and expertise. The DRX machine is a non-surgical spinal decompression, I feel so rejuvenated after this treatment. And let me not forget Joselyn she is amazing.
