Thoracic Spinal Stenosis: Symptoms, Causes, Treatment
Thoracic Spinal Stenosis
Thoracic Spinal Stenosis is an abnormal narrowing of the spinal canal that may occur in thoracic regions of the spine.
Causes of Thoracic Spinal Stenosis
Spinal Stenosis rarely involves the thoracic spine in the upper and middle back. The main causes of Thoracic Spinal Stenosis include spinal asymmetry leading to disc bulge and herniations and arthritis. As we grow older, the disc loses a number of its water content as well as much of its cushioning capability. The very first variation that appears in the disc tends to be holes inside the external ring of the disc, known as the annulus. Holes within the annulus can happen without having signs and symptoms. These types of holes recover through developing scar tissue formation.
Scar tissue is weak than usual tissues. Repetitive accidental injuries or falls may results in spinal asymmetry which causes much more deterioration of the disc. As a result, the area in between each vertebra will become smaller sized. The modification in the bones of spinal column leads to excessive stress to the articular cartilage material protecting the actual facet joints. With time, this irregular stress leads to deterioration and inflammation in the facet joints.
Bone spurs may possibly form across the spinal vertebrae and facet joints. These kinds of spurs may turn to push up against the spinal-cord causing the signs and symptoms of myelopathy or even the spurs may place stress where the nerve fibers exactly depart the spine channel leading to signs and symptoms of radiculopathy.
Signs and Symptoms of Thoracic Spinal Stenosis
Thoracic Spinal Stenosis causes a compression to the spinal canal, resulting in a neurological deficit. Symptoms include pain, numbness, paraesthesia, and loss of motor control in the region innervated by affected spinal segment. Pain is one of the most common symptoms of thoracic stenosis. For some people, this pain is described as a burning sensation in the thighs or calves. In other cases, the pain of thoracic stenosis is described as a dull ache in the lower back. One feature of thoracic spinal stenosis is that any pain in the back will not radiate down the legs, instead the pain will usually be contained to one area.
Diagnosing Thoracic 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 thoracic spine to identify the specific reason for your back pain.
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 Thoracic 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.
