Central canal stenosis narrows bony openings (foramina) in the spine, potentially compressing the spinal cord in the central canal.
Central canal stenosis stems from spine degeneration or factors like trauma, infections, and metabolic conditions.
Cervical foraminal stenosis narrows spinal nerve openings in the neck, potentially causing pain and discomfort.
Cervical foraminal stenosis results from narrowing nerve openings in the neck. Diagnosis involves imaging and medical evaluation.
Surgery for cervical foraminal stenosis is an option if non-surgical treatments don't alleviate pain and related symptoms.
Cervical foraminal stenosis symptoms involve neck pain, weakness, and tingling due to nerve compression.
Non-surgical treatments like physical therapy, medication, and activity changes are typically the first options for cervical foraminal stenosis.
Cervical stenosis with myelopathy is a condition where spinal canal narrowing leads to spinal cord compression, causing neurological symptoms.
Diagnosis of cervical stenosis with myelopathy involves clinical assessment, imaging, and neurological tests.
Diagnosing central canal stenosis involves physical examination, imaging tests, and assessing symptoms. Medical evaluation is crucial.
