Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

Lumbar Spinal Stenosis is an abnormal narrowing of the spinal canal that may occur in lumbar regions of the spine. It is most common type of spinal stenosis cervical and involves compression of the cauda equina.

Causes
Spinal asymmetry and arthritis is the most common cause of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis as they can result in the disc degeneration and loss of its water content. In children and young adults, discs have high water content and with growing age our discs begin to dry out and weaken. This problem causes loss of disc space height increasing pressure on facet joints and causing their degeneration. The covering cartilage of the joints also wears away resulting in bone rubbing on bone. To make up for the lost cartilage, the body responds by growing new bone in facet joints. Over time, this bone overgrowth-called spurs- narrows the space for the nerves to pass through and also the spinal canal. Another response to arthritis in the lumbar spine is that ligaments around the joints increase in size which also lessens space for the nerves. Once the space has become that small that it can irritate spinal nerves, painful symptoms result.

Signs and Symptoms
The typical signs and symptoms of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis includes increased pain in the legs with walking (pseudoclaudication), which can markedly reduce the activity level of the affected individual. Patients are typically comfortable at rest but cannot walk far without developing leg pain.

Additional symptoms in the legs may be fatigue, heaviness, weakness, a sensation of tingling, pricking, or numbness and leg cramps, as well as bowel and bladder symptoms. Symptoms are most commonly bilateral and symmetrical, but they may also be unilateral.

Discovering the main cause of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis starts with a detail history taking, physical assessment and 3D spine X rays. Following the history taking, bodily assessment and 3D X rays, KKT professional may ask for certain other X rays and MRI of cervical spine to identify the specific reason for your backache.

KKT Treatment
KKT treatment offers the most sophisticated and highly effective non invasive medical technology for spinal restoration.

KKT treatment has been proven to reduce or eliminate pain by re-aligning spinal vertebras back to their normal symmetrical positions. As mis-alignment can cause pressure on the disc and bulging, herniated or slipped disc can impinge on a nerve causing Lumbar Spinal Stenosis , realignment of spine can be used for the treatment of this nerve impingement and spinal cord compression. KKT treatment also stimulates biosynthesis of components responsible for disc health and this suggests why KKT is effective for treating disc diseases.

A well-rounded KKT treatment plan along with physiotherapy helps in soothing inflammation and pain, increasing your flexibility along with durability, as well as assisting you come back to optimum overall performance.

In short , to heal the spine, to reduce and eliminate pain at various levels and to give you back the quality of life you are missing the world’s most advanced healing machine is your own body and KKT treatment gives your body every chance to heal itself the way nature intends.
KKT Spinal care restores the body structural and neurological balance that has been affected by disturbances from the spine. This restoration reactivates the transmission of healing messages from the brain to the effected part of the body and vice versa. As a result your own body’s rhythms and natural healing processes can begin.
