THE NARROW CANAL SYNDROME (VERTEBRAL STENOSIS)

By: Dr. Elton Gomez, Regenerative Medicine Expert

The spinal cord, that set of bones that holds us up and supports the entire body, is a fairly strong structure, as well as flexible, supported by the intervertebral discs and reinforced by powerful ligaments, muscles and tendons.

This structure contains a channel that houses the spinal cord, a nerve bundle that descends from the head and continues to the central nervous system through the peripheral nervous system, through the nerves that reach every corner of our body.

Sometimes a blow, poor posture, or inflammation that occurs and lasts for a long time, triggers the growth of bone within the canal, which causes the bone to squeeze the nerve bundles producing pain, stiffness, and lack of mobility, in the entire course of said nerves.

Sometimes an injury, poor posture, or inflammation that occurs and lasts for a long time, triggers the growth of bone within the canal, which causes the bone to squeeze the nerve bundles producing pain, stiffness, and lack of mobility, in the entire course of those nerves.

Narrow canal syndrome or vertebral stenosis is a clinical entity that can affect a significant part of the population at one point in life, and that in addition to causing suffering, entails disability and significant expenses for the patient.

The treatment of this syndrome, depending on the cause of the instability of the spine that gives rise to the initial inflammation, can range from simple analgesics, anti-inflammatories, electrotherapy, to the application of mesenchymal stem cells, or even go as far as surgery in some cases, the patient undergoes many check-ups to receive varied treatments, sometimes with little or no scientific endorsement.

Regenerative medicine has proven to be useful in most cases, applying a correct treatment strategy and carrying out an adequate process.
