Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of one or more canals or openings in the spine – most often noted in the neck or lower back. This narrowing can put pressure on the spinal cord or nerves that branch out from the compressed areas.
Spinal Stenosis can cause cramping, pain or numbness in the legs, back, neck, shoulder or arms; a loss of sensation in the extremities; and sometimes in its advanced form, problems with bladder or bowel function. Spinal Stenosis is most commonly caused by untreated osteoarthritis-related bone damage and degeneration.
Spinal Stenosis is most common in men and women over 50 years of age. However, it may occur in younger people who are born with a narrowing of the spinal canal or who suffer an injury to the spine.
SIGNS OF POTENTIAL CONCERN
Pain or cramping in the legs
Radiating back and hip pain
Pain in the neck and shoulders
Tingling or numbness in the extremities
Loss of balance
Loss of bowel or bladder function
If you have any of these symptoms or related concerns, please visit a KKT Centre near you for a thorough assessment.
The KKT process plays an integral role in stimulating the connective tissues of the spine to promote cellular regeneration.
WHAT CAN LEAD TO SPINAL STENOSIS?
Injuries to ligaments leading to calcium deposits and thickening of spinal ligaments.
Tumors of the spine
Over the past years I developed pain in my arms and legs, which was very tiring. I had two notable falls which resulted in my being incapacitated for a few weeks at a time due to pain and stiffness. Some of the top specialists in the world told me that I would have no choice, but to have spinal stenosis surgery. Due to the fact that there are no guarantees with surgery and the risks are obvious, I started looking to other options, within a few days o fKKT my posture started changing back to normal and my legs and arms felt like they were coming back to life. I had more mobility.
Today I can walk straight and no longer require a cane to get around. I spent 16 weeks dedicated to KKT. It has been well worthwhile. I never expected that I would be able to walk like I do today even again. All doctors told me I would have to accept the inevitable gradual demise. Today every one of my doctors, friends and family are in absolute shock to see my progress.
