Conditions & Diagnosis

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is perhaps the most common spinal condition treated in people over the age of 50. It occurs when the central canal narrows down because of arthritis in the joints and bulging of the disc. The symptoms are of a decreased walking distance with pins and needles and a burning sensation into the legs commonly relieved by sitting down or leaning forward on the shopping trolley. It is usually treated with either physiotherapy, injection therapy or surgery. A decision as to which avenue to go down is made during a consultation with Dr Moloney.
