119 Services ( View All )


The spinal column includes a protected area for the spinal cord and other spinal nerves. When the spinal column narrows, this is called spinal stenosis, which can result in neck & back pain and other symptoms related to compressed nerves. There are several conditions that result in spinal stenosis in the lumbar (lower back) and cervical (neck) regions. Our interventional pain specialists at Ospina Medical can offer spinal stenosis treatment options to reduce pain and other symptoms at our clinic in Manhattan.


Spinal stenosis is most commonly caused by degenerative issues in the spine, usually in the lumbar or cervical regions. Osteoarthritis, bone spurs, herniated/bulging discs and other spinal conditions that occur with aging can reduce the nerve space, pinching or compressing nerve roots. Symptoms depend on the nerves that are affected and in what region of the spine. Common symptoms include: Cervical spinal stenosis: Neck pain and weakness or numbness in arm, hand, leg or foot; balance or walking problems and possible bowel or bladder dysfunction Lumbar spinal stenosis: Lower back pain, numbness or weakness in the leg or foot. Also, leg cramping when standing or walking. To relieve the symptoms, pressure on the nerve roots must be relieved. The treatment depends on the cause of the narrowing in the spinal nerve space. At Ospina Medical, our specialists carefully evaluate each patient and determine the best treatment plan to reduce symptoms and manage pain. We strive to find non-invasive treatments, including injection therapies and interventional orthopedics that can help relieve pressure on the nerves for symptom management.

Treatment can vary, ranging from physical therapy and medications to manage pain and swelling, to surgical interventions in severe cases. Braces may also be used to alleviate pressure on the spinal cord.
