Treatment for narrow lumbar canal should be implemented as soon as possible to avoid surgical intervention. Remember to see a specialist if you have chronic back pain, especially in the lower part and especially if this includes numbness or tingling in the legs.
The lumbar canal is where the nerves of the spine descend to the lower body. They are in charge of "communicating" the commands of the brain to the legs, and therefore crushing or pressure can cause various disorders: from a slight tingling to a partial loss of gait.
Some of the most common causes are the abnormal development of bones or the degeneration of the structures and tissues that support the bones of the back.
Imaging studies are required to check the condition of the internal structures of the spine, such as discs, tendons, nerves, and vertebrae. The use of CT, MRI, and electromyography is recommended to check the level of response of the nerves.
If diagnosed early, most of the complications of this condition can be avoided Physical therapy, rehabilitation, analgesics applied directly to the spine, muscle relaxants and even ozone therapy can be part of a comprehensive treatment to prevent the narrow lumbar canal from causing further symptoms or worsening.
Surgery may consist of the removal of bones, decompression of nerves or even the removal of an intervertebral disc to relieve the pressure generated on them. These are high-risk surgical procedures and may present side effects. If diagnosed early, most of the complications of this condition can be avoided. Physical therapy, rehabilitation, analgesics applied directly to the spine, muscle relaxants and even ozone therapy can be part of a comprehensive treatment to prevent the narrow lumbar canal from causing more symptoms or worsening.
